March 2021: Fire and Ice

IntroCave Updates

Hot on the inside. Cold on the outside. That's a metaphor for something, right?

March 2021: Fire and Ice

One of the big TODOs from my 2020 roundup was that the site needed a lot more fire intro videos. I've got a bunch more in my content pipeline, so expect to see more over the next few months. While I was tracking down those fire videos, the weather decided to go nuts and dump snow on most of the country (it got super cold here for a day or two, but no snow).

I'm not organized enough to do "theme" months, but Fire + Ice came together pretty quickly.

I've also updated the Sports Arena template to get rid of the heavy gold effect on the logo. In more recent videos, I'll usually do a "clean logo" version that preserves logo colors and a "text version" that goes a little crazier with colors and effects. That template still has some issues (it takes a LONG time to render with all those video layers and particle effects), but I think it will do a lot better with two versions.

IntroCave is a one-person-show operated by Will Hankinson, but it's not 100% accurate to say every word is written by me. Some articles were live on the site when I took over. I hire writers from time to time to work on specific articles. People keep asking me to do guest posts, but I haven't actually seen any relevant submissions yet. "IntroCave staff" might make a better by-line, but currently that's just me. I've been building digital things for 10+ years now, and some of my favorite projects are posted over at my personal website if you want to take a look!
