Hugh Hancock


Hugh Hancock is the Chairman of Strange Company, producers of the Lithtech Film Producer software, as well as editor-in-chief of Machinima.com, the premiere portal site on the Web for real-time 3D film-making (primarily in game engines). Whilst he has no direct computer game design experience, Hugh's background includes extensive design and development work with several game engines (for the Eschaton series of Machinima-based films, using Quake II and most recently as project lead on the Lithtech Film Producer project), journalism in the games industry for nearly five years (including Machinima.com, online gaming news site News From The Front and UK gaming magazine NetGamer), and experience in the pen-and-paper roleplaying industry. Hugh is also an amateur blues guitarist and knife-fighter, although he can't exactly say how any of that would be relevant.
