I've been a 'pro' for a decent chunk of time now, so I'm used to the "heartbreak" of seeing projects getting canceled, cut-off at the knees, or sometimes worse: getting stuck in development hell, never to see the light of day again...... WITH that said, when this project went the way of 'development limbo', it STUUUNG!!!!
Anyone that follows my page is probably aware I am a pretty big NIN fan, so a few years back, when Jim (Lee) asked me if I was interested in meeting Trent Reznor to talk about a potential project I was like: HEEEELLS YES!!!! ...one of my favorite recent albums that NIN has done is "Year Zero"... I love the scope of the story and the concept was REALLY fertile... "Year Zero" was envisioned as a multi-media project (starting with the roots of all the viral content that was being released) , so I did a few pieces just to explore ideas and to show Trent some of the stuff we (at Wildstorm) could bring to the table.
BUT alas, sad to say the project never happened (specially now that NIN has been disbanded for the foreseeable future it seems), needless to say I was quite bummed... still, it was DAMN cool to have been able to sit down with Trent Reznor and just talk about ideas with such a creative genius ... c'est la vie.... in the mean time, I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope one day this makes it out of Limbo in some form or fashion!
