AJR - Facebook Pubic Figure - Cover PhotoAndrew John Rainnie

I am a writer, filmmaker, design and gamer. I’ve written a number of short and feature films as well as several novels, and I’m always looking to stretch into new genres such as games. I have worked for nearly a decade as a freelance games journalist as well, largely focusing on gaming crowding projects on Kickstarter etc, and have advised a few developers on their crowdfunding campaigns prior to launch.

On the filmmaking side, I run a small company called Rain Fire Films. We mostly do promotional videos for charity and music videos for up-and-coming bands and singers. We are open to taking on more clients and would love to collaborate with game designers on making promotional material for a game project, including trailers, social media content and documentary material.

  1. I write ideas for games down, this won’t sound very appealing at first look, me not having a website but I don’t need one, so far I have 10 ideas for games all different and all unique. I keep adding to them based on feedback I get from telling my friends and I work on them and make them much better… That’s the thing though, they’re only ideas right now. I want to bring them into reality but I don’t have the money to support them I want to get hired as an intern so I can help write those ideas and make them a reality, I write stories as a pastime and I’m a very friendly character. I have 10 years of gaming under my belt, playing all sorts of games, flash games, app games indie games xbox games ds games game boy colour games, n64, real life games 🙂 played on many different platforms and I believe I know what makes a great game.

    1. I am in a similar position so I recently I travelled to GDC to talk to people in the industry and find out where I stood with this experience level. The overwhelming feedback I got was that you have to prove that you really do think about all this stuff all the time – you can’t just say it! I’m now working my game ideas into a (miniature) reality using Twine and polishing up all my mod plans. You should do the same thing!
