My Pleroma

After getting the screenprints done, I started thinking about how I could go about selling them, a website being the most obvious start. And because I work from the Zombie Flash Eaters studio with, amongst others, James (Zulu) Coore & Mike ‘Fluffy’ Robinson I was lucky enough to have a crack team on hand for me to cajole & harass into helping me with my shameless self promotion. James the CG, animating whizzkid offered to help me out with an animated short & Mike offered to help out with a flashy website (they are both lovely men & very generous in their nature).

I forgot to mention that I’d already got some ‘ONE’ patches made up, in order to sell at an exhibition (I aged some of them so they looked like this) & I had some little pin badges made up too.

So I did have stuff that I could sell along with the screenprint, but it still didn’t feel like it was enough to warrant a whole website. So I stopped harassing Mike so much & just got on with harassing… I mean… making the short film with, James.

Of course, typically, after the initial forward thrust, things gradually lost momentum & what with the fact that we both have to earn a living, finding time when we were both free has proved rather difficult. The very nature of his work means that he is committed to any given project for at least weeks if not months at a time, especially if it’s one of Jamie’s projects. But having said that – STOP PRESS – James has just promised me that this Monday 27/10/08, he’s free to get back on the job. So if no paying work interrupts either of us, we could have all the remaining animation finished in a week, maybe another week to render it all & then however long it takes to write some music or record some foley for it.

As soon as it’s all done I’ll post it here, but until then, here’s the tiniest snippet, (click on the ‘godbot’ link below)… but before you watch, I gotta say the ‘fingers’ won’t be all shiny like that when it’s finished, we’re gonna re-render them in Toon Shader. Other than that, it is the finished shot – no.11 (I think).
