It was surprisingly hard on me to hear of the passing of Monty Oum, not so much as a fan but as a source of inspiration. In fact, I didn't care much for RWBY and bailed short of finishing Vol. 1. But, in fact, after marathoning the rest of the series I not only liked Vol. 2...I may in fact love it. Despite any of that, I have huge respect for the things people create that have a vision and focus that it really doesn't matter if I like it or not, I still have huge respect and willing to always give things a try.
I'm not uploading this here since the Org does not consider RWBY anime (I don't either but under a different philosophy) but it was the only thing I could think of to show my respect. AMVs are hardly a slice of what I do, but they are the only purely personal expression I use. With everything else, may it continue to be inspired.
This is my tribute.
When I run a project I usually dedicate every moment of free time to it...I guess I'm happiest when I'm overworked. Last six months were dedicated to building a cosplay for AX but whether it is that or an AMV means I suck all the time away from actually watching some anime >.<
My next project was supposed to be an original animation...the plan was basically creating the opening scene to an anime if I were to create a full story and possibly make up an opening credit sequence, but AX caught me in a way I didn't expect regarding AMVs and 2 ideas came from nowhere. So new project is slightly delayed (or at least pre-production is just gonna take a bit longer) for the moment as I work 1 of the ideas...the second may have to wait since it's bit too epic and I don't know if I want to spend that time right now. AX 2015...how far away is that??? ^_^
But at least for the one I'm in the middle of I'm just trying to get it done fast enough for NDK in my pledge to enter only competitions I or a friend will be in attendance of. Not expecting to win, more to freak my friend out, since I'm not trying to make popular videos. I'm creating my own world and hopefully people find it interesting and different.
Not So Sure
It's been crazy making small changes which is entirely more manageable than the insanity that seems to have burned me out. Taking my sweet time.
But as I look into a new project it's hard to want to get started. I have a weird idea that to me will rely heavily on tone, and another idea that my intended source doesn't have enough fighting and I need lots of hand to hand combat. Or just come up with a new idea.
My patience to hold off on release means I haven't posted anything in a while and won't for the very near future. Unless I decide to jump in again soon. Which cuts in on anime watching time. FOR SHAME.
I swear, even though I've logged 150+ hours, losing 3 hours of work pisses me off to no end. Oh well, not like I'm releasing it soon anyway. Still. Sigh.
At least I have a weird ass esoteric project to work on next. Neat. Sigh.
Week 2 as I slowly make progress on my new video that will probably take me a couple more months to complete, especially when every bloody thing I do I take a 2x4 and smack myself in the head shouting about how absolutely useless I am. Then suddenly I look at the final product and think, huh...that looks fucking sexy as hell. Rinse. Repeat. I love editing <3 for work and play.
I sure hope it comes through, it looks so beautiful in my head. That's all it's supposed to be. Hundreds of hours later. Sigh.
