Massively got a hold of Clear Skies creator Ian Chisholm today, who shared with us his reaction to having won the Mackie award. He quipped, "I was sort of wondering if they had made a mistake -- it's really nice to get that sort of recognition when all I set out to do was have some fun with my friends and have a creative outlet." But more than anything, Chisholm is pleased with the overwhelmingly positive response he's gotten from the EVE community itself. "I never set out to do any of this, so it's completely organic... it's just a fantastic thing to be able to do, to reach out and make all these thousands of people's day go with a bit of a smile when they watch the film" he said.
Also, if you'd like to know more about Clear Skies, and possibly a little of what to expect from the forthcoming installment, you'll want to keep your eyes open for Massively's upcoming Q&A with Ian Chisholm on Clear Skies 2. No spoilers though, we promise.
