I’m Toussaint Louverture H.G a self-taught Home Schooled CGI/GAME Developer! I’m 15, as an artist, show business has always been an interest to me, predominantly Music & Movies largely in part due to my father’s influence and vision, to me there was no doubt I was always an artist!
My father “The Hawk” is the song and story writer, with a multitude of great stories and music, he understood the importance of bringing life to stories, the world is predominantly a visual world, and the human mind retains 80% of what it sees vs 20% of what it reads!
Hence seeing my father struggle to find the right parties to bring his Visions to reality I decided to take on CGI at 12 years old (Computer Graphic Imagery) on my own. In less than 2 years working night and days with passion and desire to bring my father’s vision to reality I can say now I’m a full fledged VFX, Game, VR, 3D, artist!
We also live with the belief that an artist should always have control over his art and craft, most of all freedom of expression with a clear positive message, being an artist is a privilege that are bestowed on us as architects who shapes the past, for the future and influences our present and daily lives of others. The moment an artist or art is restricted; there is no point anymore of being an artist! CGI gives us this ability to bring life to the imaginary minds without any limitations, CGI prolonged life of artists; long gone are the days where artists are judge by their age, today CGI can make an artist last forever through their wonderful talents and know how; arts never dies why should the creator (The Artist)?
My Father is my inspiration why; because I saw him writing his music and stories day and night while being cancer-stricken with tons of other problems, that’s the main reason I’m who I am today and it pushes me to do this for him! I also admire Michael Jackson, based on his incredible talent and attention to details, Michael is the epitome of perfectionist and Martin Scorsese as a movie director the “Raging Bull” is my favorite movie, I would spend my nights watching DeNiro!
As an artist, we strive more for the art than the spoils! At 15 I don’t have much worry and I would like to keep it that way, the trick is to start early so I will never fall victim to life’s rat race.
My greatest achievement to date is the ability to make my father’s visions come to reality through CGI Animation. In a visual world, an artist requires to present himself in visual form. You have to have the capability of presenting what you visualize, for people just to hear or read it it’s just not enough anymore! The more realistic you can make your CGI Animations, the more powerful it is.
One of our passions at home is reading. I love novels; the “Books to Movie” http://bookstomovie.com/ program is one of the programs we have created in order to help writers bring their characters to life. This program brings life to the author’s vision of a character and setting. This is the first step of providing visuals to writing in its pure sense. There are tons of great books, sometimes I wonder why there is such a lack of quality Movies when there are so many good books and ideas, this program is an affordable way to help writers do just that!
In 5 years from now, what is my goal?
Natural Records Studios wants to be a gateway of good, quality Films, interactive Films(VR-Games) and Music. We will be the factory of good Films, interactive Films(VR-Games) and Music! We want to partner with the big boys i.e. Hollywood, SONY, MICROSOFT for distribution and NVidia for Deep Learning. We want to take on good stories from the grassroots, and affordably we want to make Films, interactive Films(VR-Games) and Music with them into a high-quality Production (Hollywood quality).
One important point is that we take little from the beginning of the movie production and along its journey we help these films come into realization through crowd funding etc. We aim to be like a filter for future good Films, interactive Films(VR-Games) and Music! We only take on real quality productions. We want to collaborate with other artists & programmers and create amazing productions, collaborations is the best way to achieve our motto, “Tomorrow’s Cinema Today™” will be in full motion!
