Has it really been like almost 4 months since my last post? Damn. Ok. I'm really not dead, really.
I promise things have been going well, and I have been quite productive.
Things I've been doing:
-Writing another script for anime stuffs
-Working on novel series development
-Ideas for a live action film coming together, will write script for that soon
-Acquiring parts and creating some practical props
-Working on an AMV for Anime Weekend Atlanta Master's AMV competition.
So, I decided quite awhile ago to not do any more derivative work and focus solely on my independent work, which I have been doing for the most part, but there was one unfinished thing that had to be done. Had to.
Normally I also don't really care about winning AMV contests, but there is also a fairly coveted award, the Master's green jacket, which I don't yet own. An opportunity presented itself, and I am taking it. I had a nice concept, and a few 3D models, so I'm making a thing. For Master's. Can't say anything more about it until AWA.
What I will say is that it has been pretty good for working through some 3D modeling problems I was having, as well as some rigging issues, and it feels good to just make a thing without any concern for perfection. It's taught me a lot, and I've had a hell of a lot of fun making it. I plan on going forward in my indie work the same way, I think I've finally learned to quit fearing and picking at stuff and just start doing, and it's amazing to see results. Sadly none of those are here yet...but soon.
I also need to post some random sketches, I was going back through things I made as a kid and was laughing at them hardcore. Some of it could be great stuff for a Youtube short series or something like that.
But, until September 6th, it's nose to the grindstone, let's get this AMV done.
