From ArmadilloCon 34

Despite a somewhat hurried start, we are having a wonderful time at ArmadilloCon. This has been a good opportunity to get to know Daniel Fu (Character Artist) a little better in person, and to discuss our projects. It’s also been a great chance to present our work face-to-face and get some immediate reactions on it (pretty much all positive so far, which is good news!). It’s also been a good chance to get away from the computer a bit to work on sketching storyboards for the pilot. That’s a lot of fun once you get started! We’ll be here until Sunday, and then I’ll be back to work on production on Monday!

 

We’ll be at ArmadilloCon 34 in Austin, TX this Weekend!

If you’re in town, you might want to come see us at Armadillo Con 34 in Austin, Texas (it’s at the Renaissance Hotel Austin ). Terry Hancock and Rosalyn Hunter will be there (we’ve got a small table reserved in the dealer room). Our character artist, Daniel Fu, is also going to be at the convention (although I haven’t tried to rope him into manning our table), so it’s just possible you might see him as well.

Casting and Internship Submissions are now closed

Casting and internship applications ar now closed. If you have already contacted us and we are waiting on a read from you, please go ahead and send it in. We’ll be trying to make our decisions on principal cast for the pilot episode (i.e. Georgiana, Hiromi, Rob, Anya, Josh, Tim, and Sergei) by the end of the day tomorro (Monday). We’ll then try to settle on the animation team and supportin cast before next Saturday (July 7).

 

Auditions for Voice Cast and Artist Internships Ending June 30th

A reminder to any of you who are thinking of applying for an internship or auditioning to be on the voic cast for “Lunatics” / “No Children in Space” (and additional series regular parts): the submission deadline is this Saturday, June 30th. We’ll try to make the decisions on principal casting by July 2nd and finish both casting and internship decisions by July 7th. We also may b interested in commission proposals for certain major modeling tasks, especially character mesh modeling, where we may need an experienced modeller.

 

And we’re back!

Well that was an interesting experience. Yesterday, we joined thousands of sites in what was apparently the largest Web blackout protest in history to oppose two very dangerous bills in the US Congress: the “PROTECT-IP Act” (PIPA) in the Senate and “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA) in the House of Representatives. This seems to have had a useful effect, as a dozen or so people in Congress have reversed their position, and Obama’s administration released a statement in opposition to the bills. So now we’re back to the business of making new media content work!

 

We’ll be joining the SOPA blackout tomorrow

Just quick note today: We’ll be joining the blackout protest against the SOPA / PIPA legislation tomorrow (Jan 18th), along with Reddit, Wikipedia, and many other sites.
Even Google will be doing something about it, as I understand it. This legislation could be extremely devastating to us, as it targets many of the people who we rely on as distributors, and of course, on viewers. Furthermore, it is unnecessary to create legislation like this as the threat of so-called “piracy” is vastly overblown.
