howdy crew :) spring is here! love is in the air, flowers are blooming, and… what’s that? getting reports that everyone is in quarantine and the world is falling apart.
well, no better time for a brobot update!
i’m very proud to report that this past month has been the greatest month of brobot progress yet. at the beginning of march, i was starting shot no. 11, and now i’ve just completed shot no. 26 — fifteen shots done, plus more updated and finalized. altogether, it totals the first two scenes and first two minutes of the episode. it feels fantastic to be able to watch the episode in sequence. it’s a good episode, my favorite yet. got a lot of heavy lifting here soon though — crowd shots comprise the majority of this next scene, with a car chase to follow. ergghhhh.
still, i am really really stoked at how this is turning out. progress was stalled on hillsdaleoween for some time. as i’ve spoken about at length in the past, portions of the production process — script/soundtrack/animatic/rigging — were affected by fear and depressive moods. in the early part of the year, we moved to a different house, which limited some time, and working in retail has pulled me away as usual too. still, i’ve gotten into a groove at the new place… been waking up at the crack of dawn with some coffee and knocking stuff out on days i close, and working deep into the night (being the nightfly, as my gf dubs it) on those i open. now, i feel in my best place yet to get this episode done on time and have it out by halloween :) here’s to being productive!
of course, as i’m sure you know by now, just about everything has been canceled or postponed, and my comics itenerary reflects that. i was appearing at FLUKE in athens, but that’s been re-scheduled to september 5… count on me being there. i’d like to get to more comic fests this year but ehhhh we’ll see.
in the meantime, here’s a screenshot from ep 103. enjoy!
