hey everyone!! part 2 of the christmas short is out (or will be out soon after this is posted)! feelin' pretty good about it. i've slayed the monster.
in this, hopefully brief entry, i kinda want to offer what i've learned in this process. i’ve always wanted to make something with heart. this story has heart, but maybe too much of it. like, [SPOILER] does herman have to give him a hug at the end? it’s just sappy and overly sentimental. speaking of story, act one should be 25% of it. in this short, i spend, like, four minutes at the tree lot in the opening. just really bad.
despite its flaws (and god, there are so many), i’m pretty proud of this effort. more than that, i’m excited that i recognize my flaws. these will be things improved upon in my next short. as my internal defense mechanism said when i started this journey two years ago, ‘there’s nowhere to go but up’.
i'll see you fellas in a couple weeks for brobot 2!!
