OMG! I'm so annoyed & frustrated because I spent over an hour typing & formatting a blog post here, and New Grounds ate it up! }:(
Anyways, this summer was a lot of learning, exploring, filming, drama, and even custom made 3D particles in Adobe After Effects CC. We had so many heat waves that I often could't use my computer because the heat could destroy the video card, and I couldn't even open anything graphics related.
We finally finished our little animated film "Maple Bacon" which took forever due to a umber of computer or heat issues, including hackers, dead hard drives, filming other projects, and videography gigs working for HockeyTV, as well was way too much film cast dramas in which several actors and crew got fired on another major film that is bogged down by some bad elements and dishonest folks.
The version of "Maple Bacon" here on NewGrounds is the parametric stereo audio version, but the version on YouTube is the surround sound 5.1 version that even used a 4 track audio in the sound design.
I'm also on Twitch frequently and participating as much as I can in #Inktober & #drawtober this year.
I'm making butterflies that will be made into animation puppets in Adobe After Effects CC. I'm re-cutting and expanding my 2016 film "Smattering Thoughts Also Flow" to fit the actual vision & concept the way I'd actually wanted it to be, and intented it to be, as well as expanding upon it. I will very likely be including this film ito my TV Show which I am producing for WCA9 TV in my town.
I will also be getting back to the basics & fundamentals of Traditional Animation in 2019 so I can continue my work on my animated short film project "Ying Qilin".
