Who is marforno?

Marforno is a 53 year old grandfather, who lives in Montreal, Canada. He loves learning about new things, is very curious about 3D, and he loves creating little worlds.

Describe one of marforno's typical workdays.

Well, usually my day begins with a big stretch and a strong cup of coffee as I shuffle over to my computer to begin the day. :-) I check my emails and take care of any customer requests or correspondence. I visit the marketplace and vendor forums to see how business is going. Then the first DM meeting of the day starts, and Danie and I discuss current projects, etc. After all this, I settle down for some time to think and plan, and then I start working. There are usually several more DM meetings throughout the day.

How do you like to spend your free time?

Free time? What is free time? :-) Seriously, I enjoy spending time with my family and most recently, with my new granddaughter, Mia, who has stolen my heart. I like watching movies and documentaries, and once or twice a year I like to travel a bit.

Which part of the development process do you enjoy the most?

Without a doubt it is the stage just after the initial models have been created and get to Danie�s hands. This is when the vision begins taking shape and coming into focus. It is, at the same time, the most conflictive part, because this is the stage when Danie and I begin the process of exploring the final meshes and textures, and the potentiality of creating useful scenes with them. Initially, we may or may not agree on the final direction we want to go. In the end, however, we always reach a point of compromise that makes us both happy and results in a product that we are both very proud of.

What motivates you to create?


My motivation comes from all directions of life ... art, music, people. I like to take my love for architecture, throw in some fantasy and a vision of something new and exciting will begin to form. This is usually just a starting point on the path to the end product, but this is all it takes to motivate my imagination and then it just all flows from there.

Why do you think DM Productions has been so successful?

I have to credit our success to our loyal customers. I can only speculate that they have come to enjoy the versatility, originality and quality that DM has come to achieve through the years, and I thank them very much for that.

In closing, is there anything else you would like to add?

First and foremost, I want to thank all our customers for their continued support through the years. You are all fantastic and this would never be possible without you. I thank you over and over, and I hope that in the future we can continue to create all that you need and want.

A huge thank you to the other half of DM Productions, my partner, Danie. Thank you so much Danie, for your never-ending gifts and talent. Without you I would not be here. You are an amazing person and a wonderful artist.

A very special thanks to Rhiannon. Thank you for your support, you are a great talent and a great source of inspiration.

I would also like to thank Joan (Kinouk), Jean Luc (Abraham), Didi (didi_mc), Alejandra (Vampir3Princess), Jorge (Lesthat), Bez, Luis (lluque), Orietta (Luciferino), Karen (Avalonne), Martina (arwenone), Rose (rjghise), Leah (Turtle), and Jill (DTigerWoman).

And last, but certainly not least, a special thanks to the staff of Renderosity � Clint, Debbie, Jenifer, Stacey, and Mendy � you are all so wonderful and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Renderosity such a fantastic home and community. Thanks for your time

What I said last month, could go for you too. DM products are a VERY VERY good help when creating my stories. I could not make them as realistic if your products where not for sale. I LOVE them all.. Gravity, Rituals, Grobland. It is all amazing.
