brobot ep 1 is coming along! i won't tell you where i'm at, but i'm almost halfway through. THIS is gonna sound crazy, considering my progress so far, but my hope is to finish it within the next month. with work and other stuff i haven't devoted every bit of free time to animating the episode, but september is the month of going hard on it. i've made a lot of progress in short amounts of time before -- xmas short, paperboy. the difference is this short looks better than any of those and takes more time. but my idea is that by the end of this month this episode will be nearing completion... hopefully looking at a mid-october release date.
in the last month, i've faced a lot of challenges regarding a scene i had to entirely re-do. well, i mean, i hadn't animated it yet, but the way i boarded it was, like... it was a handful. you'd probably think i'm crazy if i explained it. basically the original joke wasn't funny, so when i re-boarded it in july, i took it out and re-wrote it some. then i realized that didn't properly introduce the setting, which the next (admittedly only slightly funnier) joke kinda relied on, so the viewer'd be left wondering "i don't get it. where are we?" so it was a mess. but i fixed it.
the good news (ay, yall heard about the good news? yall sleepin on your boy, had a good SNOOOOOOZE) is that pretty much every new thing that has to be designed has been designed -- character turnarounds, fire, house interiors, wormholes/portals. all of which can be reused throughout the rest of the episode. except i recently re-wrote the tag for the episode so i've gotta kinda-sorta re-board and re-voice that, but that should come easily... it's not too different than it was. i'm really excited with how the episode is turning out and my friend dillon (kingdarkeyes) has recently begun working on the music in earnest for it. and i'm beginning to re-write drafts of the next few episodes, which will hopefully be shorter and i can release them faster. the idea is i want to go back to mobile to re-record some friends' lines in the next month or two and then i'll get the soundtrack for episode 2 done then too. so hopefully i can begin animating on that before fall's over. i don't like waiting so long :( lol
i'll also be releasing a preview clip on my facebook and twitters before it's out so be on the lookout for that if you wanna! here's a screenshot of a shot i recently completed. onto september, pray for me dawgs that i complete all this shit SOON!
