Preview image!

With all the excitement surrounding the San Diego Comic-Con and new media press releases, I thought I would jump on that bandwagon and give you a little sneakie-peekie of my own. This is a still from my next cartoon. World exclusive! Stop the presses!

Hint about my next cartoon: its about a DJ. It's currently untitled (I have a couple of candidate titles).

I'm about 1/3 completed with the film. I hope to have it run about 4 to 6 minutes. I'm working on the soundtrack as we speak. Oh the excitement builds, huh? Look for this cartoon around the end of August or so.

The new film looks good.
Jim. May I ask some questions? How do you create the voices? DO you morph them in garage band or some other software. What is that software?
I have another tip about the animation process. By exporting out a series of jpegs and importing them into Adone Premiere as "numbered stills" it creates a very fast workflow.
You can also "key" colors and make some cool overlay effects.
Making the final film in Premiere and not FLASH makes the entire thing much easier and the final movie exports to ALL formats, which makes it real cool. You can make a DVD or an FLA FLV, very easy.
Exporting of FLASH is very limiting (for me). But there may be something I am missing.

I made an animated short film...about an animation Billioniare producing his animated films in foreign countries. I heard you mention that making films out of the country would be a thought someday. It's a spoof of course. A joke.
