Welcome to Astonished by Design

Astonished By Design is the home to "Disclosure", an original screenplay currently in the writing phase, "Untold Story", an EP of original orchestral music and "The FPS" (The First Person Simulator) , which was first successfully tested in February 2006 using Adobe Director (known as "Headtrack2.0") and demonstrated the idea of the first person perspective being based on not just the head movement but of the combination of the head and eye movement.


Today, the Unreal Engine demonstrates that, purely with visual scripts (known as "Blueprints"), new mechanics can be produced which along with it's amazing rendering ability give a more immersive experience.


You will also find the music, photography and details of a screenplay in progress by me, Stephen Palmer.
