Recently getting over a cold, so no one wants to hear that during a video update. Let’s just be honest 😀 So you will have to wait at least a few more days to see my beautiful bald head, unless you watch a previous update. The studio space is put back together, a little unorganized but the desk and book cases are back in spots and there is room to get my second monitor up so recording won’t be too far off, actually planning on doing some recording tomorrow night. Sleep was a priority over the weekend to get back to health.
Over the weekend, I was a guest on a local podcast, in which we recorded two episodes so it was a good chunk of Saturday. If you want to give it a listen, you can find it at the Sioux Empire Podcast. The first episode focuses on more news and local events, next weeks episode will be based more towards Cosmic Rage and nerd culture.
I pushed forward on storyboards this week, wrapping up another couple scenes, again, I will get more into this soon. I want to make sure I cover a little more of the script-aspect of episode 2 before moving onto the next stage of the process.
Thanks for checking out the production update!
The script for episode 2 is complete! More updates coming very soon. Let’s do this!
Production Update time is upon us once again. As you may have noticed, things have been a little inconsistent the past couple weeks. There are a lot of life things going on right now, my wedding is getting closer so we have some things here and there to wrap up. My sister is also expecting their first baby before our wedding yet and on top of that, I am putting the finishing touches up on a freelance project and starting a new teaching assisting session for animation.
With all of that going on, things aren’t all that quiet on the Cosmic Rage front. Episode 2 has a draft for the second episode, which I have gotten some really good feedback on. The first episode has been accepted into it’s first film festival so there have been some things behind-the-scenes that need to get taken care of in terms of getting marketing materials emailed over. Did I mention that Cosmic Rage also has it’s first gallery showing as well next month? There are a lot of exciting things going on.
I have talked about doing some behind-the-scenes videos as well and in terms of being realistic, those may have to wait another month or two until the wedding is wrapped up and things just settle down a touch. I have been brainstorming a lot of things I want to share so I appreciate your patience, it means so much to me.
The first script draft for episode 2 is wrapped up. I am passing the script off to a couple other script-writers and film-makers for them to take a look over it and try to poke some holes in it in case I missed something or if I need to clarify areas that pop up. I am very excited to be sharing it with people and having them taking their first look at it.
I am going to give them some time to look over the script, so in the mean time, starting this weekend, I am going to be laying out files for an art show in May at a local coffee shop. It’ll be the first time that Cosmic Rage artwork will be hanging up for people to see and also see the process and behind-the-scenes type work for the project. Everything will be ready to go after the weekend to take to the printer.
I am going to do some behind-the-scenes content on the art show and the preparations, so I will have some new video content coming up next week. Thank you for your support! Good things are coming 😀
Last week there was some work to do on the back end of the site, routine web maintenance, so I didn’t get a chance to update. So let’s get into it!
I started working on polishing up the script for the second episode. It has been a while since I had a chance to look at it so it was a nice time to work with it some more and get familiarized with the contents again. I got about half done with it this past week, so my goal is to finish it up by the weekend so I can get some more eyes on it to look at and see if they can poke some holes in it.
While the script will be with a handful of people to take a look at, I will be spending the time after that to prepare for a local art show, giving Cosmic Rage the chance to get in front of more people but also to help explain the animation process to people who may not know. I am very excited to see my work hanging up in a venue again 😀
With convention season approaching, I’ve been working on getting a few panels submitted to some conventions I have planned out to travel to. Most of my convention season is going to be late summer and into the fall since this is a pretty busy summer but you will get a chance to see me at conventions in 2017!
I am starting another freelance project which is needed. Since my Patreon page hasn’t quite covered my VO costs for the second episode, I needed to pick up a project. This will also help with my convention travel this summer as well so it’s just a small price to pay. But in terms of timing it works out really well since the script will be making the rounds to trusted friends and writers and while some files will be at the print shop for the art show.
Thank you everyone for checking out the blog and as always, thank you to my Patreon supporters for their continued support!
