My next animated feature film - RELEASE 2015
I have a few feature scripts sitting around but I started outlining a new idea last week that I'm really excited about- the narrative style would be very close to I am Nightmare except much more emotionally charged-the idea sparked when I saw this story about this little Chinese boy who has been shunned because he was born with hiv- and he lives alone in the forest : (
Its also inspired by what the kids in Palestine have to go through everyday
As I become a better and more experienced storyteller- it becomes easier to take the issues I feel strongly about in the real world and weave the issues into fictional narratives and characters WITHOUT being preachy or making documentary-ish stuff
So many children go through so much pain everyday ALL over the world- I want to tell their stories- I want to create "hero" stories with them in mind-
Mythology is supposed to provide possible answers to the questions that life is asking you- that you ask yourself- is it doing that for them?
But anyway- I won't be putting a film out this year- it will come out at the end of 2015
STRANGE FILM SCHOOL- Mid 2014
This year I will launch my own online film school in which I will personally teach "Cg filmmaking" I'm going to teach people how to create their own personal cinema-
The school will be based around the Cg Filmmaking complete course which will consist of four twelve week courses- Each week there will be a downloadable video lesson + project files and once a week students will attend a 1 hour Q&A session with me via Google Hangouts(thats what animation mentor uses now I'm basing the structure on the way they do it)
I'll also create a library of specific video tutorials for supplementary/more specific lessons not covered in depth in the regular course
I'm in the outlining phase now- but it'll have a nice design and professional interface etc- not going to rush it- going to do it right- I'm hoping to start it all up by June/July 2014
My first game- end of 2014
I've amassed a TON of learning material for Unity3d and I'm going to put myself through a self guided Unity3d school very soon so I can start the journey to create my first SIMPLE video game- its looking like my first project will be a 2d side scrolling BADASSERY game- nothing fancy as I'm a N00b in the game space- after I complete a 2d game I'll take on a simple 3d game project for which I've been preparing for some time now- once I get some decent game legs under me- I'm sure to explode with tons of crazy videogamey stuff as I have MORE ideas for games than I do for films-
Other projects I'll be putting out in 2014
- music video for Kool Skull's "Cold Pizza"
-Original Soundtrack for "Welcome to Normality"
-a new album for DottiR
-at least one new BADASSERY episode
-at least one new Darksided episode
There's a few other projects up in the air that are collabs and I need to reconnect with those peeps to see where they are at before I pencil the projects in for this year-
