Hey everyone! I was intending on doing a video blog for the week but my studio has been rearranged for some carpet cleaning and with several other house projects going on, it might be easier to do a written blog post.
This past week I started storyboarding for episode 2. Currently I have the first scene storyboarded, of course this can still change but the concepts and ideas are there. I will get more into this in the future when I dive into some video content about storyboarding and discussing how the process is going.
I also mentioned that I have been reworking Patreon and I have my new structure in mind, which will be launched in a couple weeks. I appreciate everyone’s support and look forward to sharing more about Cosmic Rage with everyone!
Let’s talk conventions now. This past weekend I was in my hometown Watertown for a one day convention. It was a a great turn out and the venue had plenty of space and room for panels, artists, vendors and more, they even held a cosplay competition and had a fantastic turnout. The local conventions are always a blast and it’s great to see everyone and talk animation, gaming and more with them. I also received word that my panels have been accepted into Nebraska so I will be hosting several panels there on animation and even my j-rock panel for some Sunday fun. This will be my third year at Nebraska and I look forward to it every year.
Up for this week, is to continue to making progress on storyboards and getting the studio put back together.
Thanks for visiting! Back to storyboarding I go!
This week’s production update is going to be a little quick, I have some catching up to do on things on other fronts. First off, Nebraskon was a great time. It was my second year at the convention and it was fantastic, I got to see lots of friends and made some new ones in the process. It was their first year in a new venue and I had a great experience.
My panels went well. The first one was a screening of Cosmic Rage, where I got to screen my work and also engaged in a great Q/A session with the people in attendance. I raffled away a copy of Cosmic Rage on DVD too. Really good stuff.
MY second panel was a new one, covering getting into animation. It was a little rough in terms of content since it was my first time with the panel. I am looking forward to smoothing it out for next year, cutting out some content and bringing some new content into it. The panel was packed so it is definitely going to stay in the rotation of panels.
I have some big changes coming up that I would like to share with you all later this week or in next week’s production update. I look forward to sharing them with you and diving into episode 2!
Not really too much to report this week in terms of production. Something came up this week and it really took all of my attention outside of work and freelance projects. It’s a pretty big announcement so I will get it shared once I can.
It’s been a crazy summer so far with all of the con travel for screenings, panels and getting engaged that I am really looking forward to putting in some serious hours on Cosmic Rage soon. I have a ton of things I want to try out and explore. I really appreciate everyone’s patience with this. I owe you all a serious video update when things calm down a bit.
Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget you can support Cosmic Rage on Patreon!
I’ll be presenting my History of CGI in Anime panel at AkuaCon in Watertown, SD. I grew up in Watertown, SD so I am really looking forward to presenting and meeting more of my fellow fans in South Dakota. The interesting thing with AkuaCon, is it is a one day free con for everyone to check out. Here are more details…
