Phew! It's been longer than I thought since the last journal entry.
I want to thank each of you again, who visit my galleries and comment =]. It really means a lot to me!
The last two weeks were a tight bottleneck of deadlines which has been accomplished, thank goodness xD. However, with only 6 weeks left until Anime Revolution here in Vancouver, it's unlikely I'll be able to prepare all the content AND finish the Shadow Magic trailer AND the panel content. Thus, Shadow Magic will be postponed for another 6 months. I want to be absolutely sure we're ready to launch the KickStarter.
Here is the current progress on the trailer!
The game project I've been working on the last few years has launched their website!! I'm sooooooo looking forward to seeing the game in action! We're so close!
You can now check out Shyria's Journey here: shyriasjourney.spritesgamestud…
The Studio website can be seen here: spritesgamestudio.com/
So we've applied to host a panel on "Animating Anime" at Anime Revolution this year. We'll discuss the animation pipeline from our studio experiences and discuss some of the differences between animation made in North America, and those made in Japan. We hope to see you there!! I'll be using some scenes from the Shadow Magic trailer as examples as I explain the animation process.
We're also animating a short for Amara Entertainment, featuring their comic book characters Purge and Zentra. We're calling it "Project Crimson Seed" =]. The animation is slated for completion by the end of August. I'm looking forward to sharing it with everyone <3. Our team is fully active on this one as we provide background art, cleaned animations and post-production.
MiniComi has upgraded their venue to the Olympic Village in Yaletown this year! It's a FREE one-day event! If you're in the neighborhood, be sure to drop by and say hello at our table on July 19th
. Yikes!! It's coming up so soon and I'm sold out of Lolita goods! Hence... my Saturdays are now for sewing instead of animating Shadow Magic T__T.
And, as always, I'd love to hear from you if you're interested in becoming a collaborator or contributor, whether directly in the anime production pipeline, or with your help with spreading the word! I would like to reward any link sharing and features with some DA points (just let me know in this journal comments or via private note). Shadow Magic is very dear to me, and I hope you will enjoy it too!
