Interview: ROBLOX Filmmaker – Excelerate

Posted on July 22nd, 2009 in Filmmakers, Interviews | 8 Comments »

excelerate

So, I just did another interview today. You may very well have heard of Excelerate. He is well known on ROBLOX mainly for his filmmaking abilities, but he’s also a really great builder, and an amazing ROBLOX clothing designer. I first heard about Excelerate when he won the ROBLOX Rox contest back in March. His name came up again when I found his entry for the ROBLOX trailer contest – which ended up being a winning video.

WonkaKid: Tell a little bit about yourself.

Excelerate: I am one of the top clothes makers/sellers in ROBLOX, and I’m known for my filmmaking abilities. I also love to spend time building big projects and unique places

WonkaKid: How did you find ROBLOX?

Excelerate: I was really bored one day, so I went to YouTube. I was searching for some cool games to play, and a ROBLOX video popped up. My whole perspective on gaming changed from then on.

WonkaKid: How long have you been on ROBLOX?

Excelerate: I had an account before Excelerate, Who joined December 2007, So, I have been playing for about 19 months now.

WonkaKid: What would you rate ROBLOX on a scale of 1-100? Explain why.

Excelerate: I would rate ROBLOX a 90 easily. Why? Because it is far more unique than almost any other game on the internet. There is so much customization, this is one terrific and addicting game.

WonkaKid: Who is your favorite ROBLOX player? Explain why.

Excelerate: When I was first starting to play, I was inspired by many players but I would have to say my favorite player in ROBLOX would be Nintendoboy4, Because I looked up to him when I was newer, and he has been a great friend ever since.

WonkaKid:
What is your favorite ROBLOX game? Explain why.

Excelerate: My favorite game is a recent game by Anaminus called Tunnel Cruiser. I love it because of its unique and amazing quality, and its just overall addicting fun. It reminds me of the older type of classical games.

WonkaKid: What was the most important moment you’ve had on ROBLOX?

Excelerate: My most important/best moment on roblox was actually on my 2nd day playing. I got extremely lucky and my place made it to the front page. Being so new, I was extremely overjoyed and surprised at the time.

WonkaKid: If you were given full ROBLOX administrator powers for 24 hours, what would you do?

Excelerate: I have one thing I would just love to do. Get rid of all of the site errors on ROBLOX to make it a more pleasant experience. There is nothing I would want more than to make it much more convinient.

WonkaKid:
You’re a great ROBLOX filmmaker. Do you have any tips on the subject for our readers?

Excelerate: My main tip would be to Practice. I practiced for a long time to get where I am now, and I have been able to make some pretty cool things with my ability. Some other general tip(s) would to be, Make sure you have the proper equipment to do great film-making, if you are seriously trying hard to succeed.

WonkaKid:
How do you picture ROBLOX 5 years from now?

Excelerate: I see ROBLOX becoming a massive game with Millions and millions of players, turning into such a successful and entertaining game as many other popular online games are these days. I hope to come back in the future and see how things have developed. I have strong belief in ROBLOX.

Posted on December 12th, 2008 in Filmmakers, Interviews, Writers | 13 Comments »

Just before my laptop was destroyed, I had promised a certain Roblox player he would have the next interview here on Roblox News. Yes, the laptop incident was a bit of a while ago, but does that matter? No way! I promised an interview to this guy. I also told you guys to be looking forward to several new posts coing up.

So, who is SonicBoy? SonicBoy is probably best known for his Roblox fanblog – Roblox Direct. SonicBoy also has a few popular Roblox videos. His video name, as you might know him is SonicMaster1. The most popular Roblox video he has made would probably be his May-Funny Roblox bloopers. Anyway, it’s time for the interview!

Meet M1LKMAN – Professional Roblox Fighter

Posted on September 16th, 2008 in Bloxxers, Interviews | 38 Comments »

M1LKMAN at Telamons iSword Fight on the Heights Original/i

I recently received a message from a great Roblox player, M1LKMAN. He had been asking for an interview here on Roblox News. I thought it over and came to a great conclusion. The greatest reason I would interview M1LKMAN for is his skill in Roblox fighting. That’s when I thought of having interview categories.

M1LKMAN has a mere 7,800 when it comes to profile views. You would think that sounds just above average in Roblox… until you notice his KO count – about 43,000. I’m pretty sure that leads him to being one of the top 5 Roblox fighters, wouldn’t you? Roblox does have quite a few great fighters, and M1LKMAN is definitely one of them.

Roblox Interview Categories

Posted on September 15th, 2008 in General, Interviews | 16 Comments »

I’ve interviewed many great Roblox players in the past, all for great reasons. These reasons could be things such as how good certain people fight in Roblox, how popular certain players’ Roblox maps are, or even a large amount of forum posts certain players have.

I’ve interviewed great Roblox bloxxers, such as Noobertuber, Roblox hit place owners, such as LuigiFan, even the average Roblox player you meet in a game, such as L337. There are many others I’ve interviewed, these are just a few examples. As I said, I interview people for different reasons.

Meet L337 – “The Average Roblox Player”

Posted on May 7th, 2008 in Average Players, Interviews | 41 Comments »

l337

I’m guessing barely any of you have heard of the Roblox player, l337. Why am I interviewing him, you ask? Well, I’ve had many interviews with great, popular Robloxians in the past. I’ve never actually had one with the normal player you see venturing through Robloxia. l337 was almost going to be featured on another Roblox fan site, but was eventually declined.

I decided I’ll probably be doing these “average Roblox player interviews” a little more often, now. What are you waiting for? Get reading!

Sirloin at the Cave

I recently got an interview with the well-known Roblox forum moderator, Sirloin! Sirloin has been working as a Roblox forum moderator for about half a year, now. I’m really glad he let us at Roblox News interview him. Thanks a ton, Sirloin! Enjoy the interview!

WonkaKid - How did you find Roblox?

Sirloin - I found Roblox on a game site. I forget which, but I almost never saw it, the box was so tiny!

WonkaKid - How does it feel being able to help supervise the Roblox forums?

Sirloin - It feels good. I actually enjoy deleting the threads in a forum raid.

WonkaKid - Is Roblox your favorite online game? If not, what is?

Sirloin - Yes. The only other online game installed onto my computer is Kart Rider. But that doesn’t usually work…

WonkaKid - Who is your favorite Robloxian other than yourself?

Sirloin - Oh, tough decision… but if I could only pick one, I’d have to say Koopa. He’s an awesome guy. Just awesome. Next is Are92, and FFJosh. They’re awesome, too.

WonkaKid - What would you rate Roblox on a scale of 1-100?

Sirloin - I must say that a lot of things are missing. I give it an 82.
