So, last post I made was in July. It is now October... LATE October. I'll be honest, I'm not sorry. I've been crazy busy with a lot of other stuff. Personal stuff and work aside, I've been writing. A lot of writing.
Back in my last post, yes, in July, I made a mention of gathering people together to create a an animated show. Well, I've done what I wanted accomplished so far, and it has been looking better and better.
I welcome you to...
I've got a total of 5 artists, 3 voice actors (myself included) with family and friends willing to help out along the way, 1 musician and web expert, and a writer, which is me. I'm still looking for an editor or two, and then animators. The show is called "Cardisia", but will be just the beginning of what Shepsus Entertainment will be. I promise you that this will become its own production company, or I am gonna get broke trying.
As of right now, here are the latest updates on the show itself. The details about the show will come later, once some concept art is finalized, along with maybe the intro music and voice acting is coming along.
But the technical parts:
-I am just about done with writing episode 6. Episodes 7 and 8 have been Outlined on paper, Episode 9 has been outlined in my head. I plan
-The office is being setup next week with desk, recording booth, marker boards and story board.
-Music is still being worked on and edited, it is becoming something beautiful.
-The Website is being put together nicely. Mike and I spend a good time discussing things back and forth, sending e-mails and screenshots. I couldn't be happier how patient he is with me when it comes to arguing about what we see the site as. As of right now, we are on draft three or four, and he's writing the HTML code for it within the next couple of days.
-Artwork has been sent, edited, and sent again within our group. Nothing yet finalized, but I have a few artists I just brought on that should do the trick.
-As soon as all this is finalized, I will be setting up a Kickstarter to help the financial side of things, and we'll see where we go.
Beyond this particular project, several of my artists have feigned interest in working on other smaller projects for both online and traditional comics. My heart has always gone out to web comics and I've always wanted to make one, but my drawing skills aren't worth bothering with. I am excited to start those as well, but please know that the web series is my main and most focused goal.
I really see this coming together. Even this morning I realized I was getting ahead of myself with some of this project. I got a lot on my plate, it is a project within projects. But this is something special, this is something worth doing and something worth creating. Just you wait. You are gonna want to be there when this takes off. You will have the wonderful opportunity to say "I remember when..."
Much love to everyone. I have more to post, but I'll leave it here for now and let me drive home from work.
