Interesting name change, subtle but stylish. What made you decide to alter it?

It's a long story lol. I created Arroll on DA when I was still in highschool more than a decade ago. Back then it was a secret code containing my name and name of the girl whom I had a crush on and was following secretly on DA lol. I started using this account again a few years ago to actually post the work I do, and for a while this name kinda had no other meaning.

Recently, I've come to realize that I had a huge interesting in producing cinematic-like sequences and scenes, sort of like the definition of A-roll: (television, film) The primary footage for non-narrative or interview based film, and usually refers to talking heads or footage that directly relates to the moment.

And thus the name change =D

Very nice! From stalker to cinematographer in one fell swoop. :p I prefer shooting B-Roll myself, it's almost always got fewer people and more actual cool stuff. :D

Amazing work! As a newcomer to Daz, your work is nothing less than inspiring. You have a fortune in skill and a talented eye. I look forward to seeing more of your creations.

Thank you so much for the kind praise, I'm really really happy to hear that my work has inspired you as how I was inspired when I first started using Daz.
If you have any questions feel free to ask, and enjoy your time playing with Daz! Cheers!

Thank you so much. Though you may not want to open that "if you have any questions" Pandora's Box :D (Big Grin) . I tinkered with Daz back when Genesis 2 was new and it was not as user friendly as it is today and got discouraged after a few days. Though I must admit, I have not delved into G8 much yet. I have a lot invested in G3F, including custom characters some of which a lot of time and tweaking. But, I may ask you about effect cameras and lighting packs later on. I have really begun to appreciate dramatic lighting and use of backgrounds (yours are very dramatic). I created a simple steampunk themed image last night just tinkering with the lighting that I am particularly happy with. I will keep in touch. Thanks Again!
