Secret Project Update #02
After all, I was right to be hesitant about the launch this Christmas. While I have put a Herculean level of time and effort into this animation project, somehow that effort and time have translated into a behemoth of a project – for one person to do, at least.
As such, I am having to scrape together a plan B. Which is plan A, but with more stops before the end.
Fortunately, there is a silver lining to every cloud.
While the effort to make the film as beautiful and dynamic a story as possible resulted in it being too much for a short turnaround animation…it has made itself very adaptable to other mediums, such as an illustrated children’s story book.
The working title is “A Christmas Tail”, which may be released for this Christmas, all being well.
A middle aged woman looks out at the world as the sun sets on Christmas Eve. First surprised by a hare that pops out of the bushes, she is surprised a second time when he leaves behind a star. In an effort to return the star to the hare, she dashes across the valley and into the woods…and beyond.
I am actively thinking about streaming the drawing and animating process as I go. I will be getting organised for it this evening and if all is ready, I will be announcing stream times over on twitter, so do follow me so you don’t miss out!
