We have some more updates for you today, along with a special surprise at the end. You’ll definitely want to read this one.
First, a quick reminder about sending us your photos/videos/album links, and any lyrics you may have written for the Open Mic Night. We’ve only heard from a handful of people, and we’d love to be able to share all of those with the whole community. Check out our previous wrap up post for full details.
Video editing is taking longer than we’d hoped, but we promise we’ll get them to you. We have over 300GB of footage, and can only work on it sporadically as real life allows. However, we did manage to get the first video done for you. If you missed Rand’s Q&A, RAWA’s hello, or just want to hear the proper way to eat watermelon again, have we got a video for you:
We’ll let you know when the rest of the videos have been uploaded!
We’ve been doing a lot of research into various cities, and we have a meeting scheduled very soon to decide the location and con-chair(s) for Mysterium 2020. Again, stay tuned and we’ll let you know once we know.
You all know that we had some awesome special guests at Mysterium this year. What you may not know is that there were several other VIPs who wanted to come, but couldn’t make it work for one reason or another. One of those people is Geneviève Lord, who was the Producer on Myst IV.
We were all bummed when she couldn’t make it, but she wanted to help out all the same. So, she got in touch with several of the concept artists who worked on Myst IV and asked them if they had any concept art kicking around that they’d be willing to share. Sure enough, she was able to get artwork from Andrzej Tutaj, Meinert Hansen, and Stephane Turgeon. With Ubisoft’s blessing, we’re able to share that artwork with the entire Myst community!
The plan was to make use of some of it for Mysterium 2019, but we just ran out of time. Instead, we’re releasing it to you in a zip file. All of this artwork is copyright 2004 – Ubisoft Entertainment/the original artist. We, Mysterium and the Falling Man Group, have no claim to it. Please be sure to read the included license file.
And now, without further delay, here is the link to download the Myst IV concept art: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zQubVGA-PtsSo-esjkjVH2bI3k-D9lad/view?usp=sharing
We’d like to thank the artists, and especially Geneviève, for helping to make this happen!
That’s all we have for now,
Mysterium 2019 Chair
