I found myself with a wee bit of free time between freelance jobs, and somehow this crazy fanimation that I started almost 3 years ago managed to worm its way back into my consciousness. Suddenly a whole scene had been completed! It seems as though Poo really wanted his animation to be finished...
|Take that, Kraken!|
The completion of the Summers segment brings the amount of finished animation up to about the 1:36 mark, which is more or less exactly halfway. In the screenshot above you can see a bit of my work process in Flash; I would kill to be able to re-compose everything in After Effects, but that would probably set me back another three years, so I'm going to concentrate on what I've started.
As for the Kickstarter idea, it's still a possibility, but I have upcoming work in the fall and I couldn't set that aside even if PK Flash was being crowd-funded. However, the fact that so many people were supportive of the idea was encouraging, so I'm going to try my best to soldier on for now. At this rate, perhaps I'll be able to post the final video in time for Earthbound's 20th anniversary!
