From Ginger

We really need to get Ginger set up on the site where he can post things himself. In the meantime, I was asked to pass this along…

Hello, I am Ginger and I want to address the situation that happened yesterday, 28th of September. After the release of my reviews, I believe that one of my reviews stirred up some controversy, and would like to shed some light on the column. First of all, I want to say that my last line was misinterpreted, it was taken out of context. Maybe it was the editing on the sentence, but i will explain it. Second of all, this is a hobby I’m trying to pick up. I don’t get paid for it, and I’m trying to find my style of review. Maybe I was a little harsh; I need to fix the structure of my review, and I accept my mistake. It’s a work in progress.

“Pick up some books, study ANGLES, for the love of god, and get gud. I expect you to improve”
NOW before i explain this i want to add this definition.

Git Gud
1. A intentionally misspelled phrase meaning “get good.” Generally used to poke fun at and mock inexperienced players in a particular video game.

Person A: Damn it, I’ve died so many times and haven’t even gotten my first kill yet.
Person B: Lol, git gud mate.

Ok now that’s over, the way I see it is people think I said “For the love of god get gud,” when it clearly says “AND get gud.” Is it professional? No. Was it meant to be hurtful? No. It was a joke. It was satire, which should be expected from a Demon from Hell. Jokes are a thing I enjoy adding; to add light to the subject, but never should be taken serious. In fact, everything I say in these reviews are never meant to be taken serious, but also are never meant to be offensive. Then again, one review from someone unknown like me, should not matter. My goal when making these reviews, is to just give my own two cents on the subject, promote the machinima so others can form their own opinions, along with trying to inspire the simmer to improve, hence the use of “git gud.” It’s up to them whether they should take my advice, or completely ignore it. This column isn’t supposed to be a serious review. Sims film fest has been taken more serious than it should be, sometimes. Take everything I say with a grain of salt. It’s my opinion, and the sims film fest staff should not be blamed for that, or the Festival in it’s entirety. From now on, things will be different on how I review. This is new to me, this is new to Sims Film Fest, and it’s a learning experience for everyone involved. It got a little bit less fun now that I have to be more professional. The people want what the people want. That doesn’t mean I cater to anyone in specific, and I do assure you, these reviews are being done completely aside from any personal relations I might have with the person. Even my personal opinion on them.

Here’s my email for those that want to address this matter more in detail or if anything else.

The Sims International Film Festival was created in 2010 as a way to foster creativity in The Sims community through machinima, an art form that uses video game footage to make movies. Over the years, as new entries in The Sims franchise were released and new editing methods became available, we’ve seen a lot of changes, but one thing has remained constant: our commitment to showcasing the creativity of this community and inspiring new artists.
