ACD-An Anime with a collaborator

ACD has been an ongoing project for the last 3-4 months. The goal is to bring to life a unique idea for an anime by self-producing the first episode. By self-producing I mean everything from character development, environmental design, writing, music, soundfx, storyboarding, rendering, and composition.

It’s coming along nicely. Currently, I’ve managed to sloth through the first 1/3 of the storyboarding.

Here is some cool art.

Just moving along on the next project!  As I’ve stated before, I can’t keep still when it comes to experimenting in different mediums. My last post was just that: a post featuring some character design and development. Things tend to move quickly when I get excite about a project. While a writer colleague of mine constantly “sees” the story play out in his head, I’ve never really worked that way. That is, until now. As this project- ominously titled “ACD”-is one of the animation medium, I can “see” the progression of the camera angles and the flow of the dialog. What I’ve determined is that there is a TON to do. I sat out for a 23-min anime short and I plan to complete just that: a 1380 second anime short. Introducing the characters just enough to create intrigue and have the effect of “what’s going to happen next” and, simultaneously, act as a complete chapter in the storyline. Easier said than done, admittedly.

This project has taken a life of its own and I’m happy to see it flourish and grow under my direction!

Having FUN!
