Hey everybody! How ya doin’? Good? Ok? Not so much? Ok, ok.
As most of you are aware, we are now less than a month away from the return of our beloved King of Monsters, Hail! So in response to this fact, I’ve got a few things to report as far as my summer plans and obligations, as well as Godzilla content on this page, and my YT account.
Summer plans: This year, I’ll be graduating High School, but it won’t be until August when I go back to school for college. So for the summer, I will have to plan on finding work. The good news is that I’ll have money that I can put towards my art & animations, both on Deviantart & on YouTube. Bad news is I might not have as much time to do much stuff. But as you’d have guessed, by no means does this indicate I am going anywhere. I’ll still be making videos & art, as I will be preparing for my career as an animator. Now having said this, with regular funding, and a longer summer to work with, what can we expect to have happen here? Well I won’t make any promises, but this is what I’m hoping for.
First of these is I hope to buy a brand new camera. I’ll hold on to the one I got, but I want to get one that is designed for video exclusively. This is due to me wanting to do reviews, & live action skits. But since I’ll have the two, I’ll be able to do that, AND do some stop motion work, which can only mean what you may think it means. For a while, I’ve been building stop motion puppets, but I’ve been too lazy to post them up on here. Well, guess what changes? THAT! Yes, you’ll be seeing me putting some stop motion stuff, & expect most of them to be Kaiju related. Speaking of which…
Shorts, Shorts, & MORE SHORTS!: For my most recently dedicated fans, do you remember back in December I posted a video called “THE KING: Test film & Trailer”?. Let it be known, it’s late. But I still have plans to produce it. It’s just that the approach will be completely different than that I planned at first. I won’t give it away here, but I’ll just it will be a unique experience.
Also, along side this, I have plans for a short called “CRIP” (Conscious Robot Intelligence Project). This concept is a possible mini-series about a near future in which humans have succeeded to transfer his consciousness into a robot body. What happens? What’s the secret reasoning? What does it mean to be alive? We’ll have to wait & see.
Those sound awesome you say, but hold on. It will get done, but it won’t get done TODAY. For alas, there is another pair of films that must come first, but thankfully they are fairly short. Both are anywhere between 8 & 12 minutes long, but are almost polar opposites. The first is a short called “The Paladin”. It’s an excerpt from a 40 minute short I wrote back in February. Basicly think “Pacific Rim”, but instead of Robots, think X-men type mutants. The second will be a short called “Warren’s World Of The Weird & Wonderful Presents: Kings Of Dreams”, a short animated documentary on Lucid Dreaming, a phenomena in which one is aware he/she is in a dream, and takes control of it. It’s Real! & no drugs necessary, thank you. Both of these are slated for a May release.
Now those last two will be done by yours truly, but the others, The King, & CRIP, they will not be possible if done by myself. So, starting fairly soon, I’ll be holding auditions for people to assist in the production of these films. I’ll need artists and animators, especially those who use Anime Studio, to make this all possible. Concept art, puppets, and turnarounds will be posted on here as they come out. Both to show you our progress, and to attract talent who are in the same spot as myself, just about to start college or otherwise & longing to become an animator, and looking to collaborate on animated projects. For those of you out there who’d like to do so, please post a comment or send me a note. I also have E-mail, email@example.com. Contact me however you can, stay subscribed to my Youtube channel, watch me here on DA, and stay tuned for more content.
