So much of being an animated filmmaker lies in the actual making of the film- well like... DUH
BUT as I've learned the hard way 0_0 If you don't put the necessary time into your web presence and promotion it's going to be really difficult for new people to learn about, discover and buy your work.
Now that I have a handle on the making of the films I can focus on other things....
I haven't had any non free blog sites for any of my stuff since 2007 when I was on a trip through Europe and my web host got hacked- trashing all the sites- and I never rebuilt them.
I realize this blog/site is good for people into the making of my work and/or animated films and art in general BUT it SUCKS for fan's of my work- fan's not interested in making their own films or my rants on whatever ^_^
So with the paypal monies I got from the last couple I AM NIGHTMARE pre-orders I paid for a year of web hosting and I'm going to be building a new mdotstrange.com and new dedicated sites for I am Nightmare, Heart String Marionette, and We Are The Strange- and also Badassery and Darksided if I have time.
I used to be a freelance web designer so I know my way around the html and the like- so this site as it is now will become my blog and that's all it will be- everything else will be on my new site.
If you have any ideas/suggestions on what my new site and the new sites for my films should be like please post in the comments!
I'm thinking for the films- things like Character galleries, character bio/info, film references, reviews, fan art, where to buy related stuff- and things like that
