Weebl & Cinema Snob Toons + AlmaCon Next Weekend!

2013-02-02 16:02:30 by Kirbopher

Oh what's that? It's been a month and literally a million things have happened? Yeah, good. Okay.

Where to start...well I've finished the commission for good mister Brad Jones the Cinema Snob, which I mentioned last post. "GAME BOYS: The Animated Series" is the project he's started up, which I've been hired on board as the animator, with characters designs by Andrew Dickman. It's a cartoon spin on an ol' movie that Brad filmed a while back with his friends. If you're a fan of THE SNOB then I hope you'll enjoy!

I also got the chance to work with longtime Newgrounds artist Jonti "TheWeebl" Picking! "Sexual Marmite" is a sequel to his hit music video "Babies", which I animated for him, along with the valuable assistance of Dave Smith of the TOME/NiN10Doh! Collab crew!

I also did a quick bit of animation for HuHaTV's "Wobble Box" skit show on YouTube, thanks to Weebl again. This was actually very fun to do. I decided to get a little experimental with it since the clip was so short, so I threw in a combination of photographic reference for a more realistic style, as well as trying to emulate Zeurel's insane lipsynching skills.

SPEAKING OF, I've had the pleasure of working with Josh "Zeurel" Palmer recently too, on the Nylocke music video for TOME Episode 06 coming out soon! He did some guest animation for me that turned out really funny. Huge, HUUUGE thanks to the five amazing winners of our cameo event auctions. I was absolutely blown away by the amounts of money people were bidding on to be part of my stupid cartoon. It means a lot to me that people genuinely love the show and are that dedicated. I really hope everyone will like Episode 06; I'm very happy with how it's turning out so far and working hard to finish it in time for AlmaCon next weekend!

On that note, here's my Schedule for AlmaCon in Alma, MI on the weekend of Feb 8th to the 10th:

-Friday, Feb 8th
6:00 PM - Balancing Act: Creating an Animated Short
8:00 PM - How Not to be an Internet Celebrity (with LittleKuriboh)
11:00 PM - Tales of Con Horror (18+)
-Saturday, Feb 9th
11:00 AM - Kirbopher Storytime
1:30 PM - Charity Auction (with LittleKuriboh)
8:00 PM - Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged (with LittleKuriboh)
9:00 PM - Kirbopher's Flashstravaganza (Premiere of TOME Episode 06!)
11:00 PM - Voice Actors 18+ Panel
-Sunday, Feb 10th
11:30 AM - Kirbopher Q&A

I'll be hanging around all weekend with Martin, Cyberlink and Liz, and other guests include the likes of Chris Sabat and Eric Vale of DBZ and One Piece fame. If you're gonna be there, stop by and say hi! Don't miss TOME Episode 06, which will be featuring two special guests Jessi "Nowacking" Nowack and Mike "OneKids" Hecht as the voices of two new characters!

Oh and one last thing! I've had the privilege of working on several really cool video games since I got out of college, including Skullgirls, which just raised nearly $80,000 for Breast Cancer Research, as well as Crisis Heart Brawlers: Clash at Otakon, which is kicking back into production!

Most recently however, I've been brought onto ANOTHER really awesome independent game project called "Cryamore", which is currently finishing up its first week with a kickstarter campaign that'll be going on until the end of this month. Currently it's pushed WELL beyond its intial goal of $60,000 and at the time of this post has reached $100,000 in backing! If we can double that amount in the time we have left, there's a very good chance it will be funded to get on major platforms like the Wii U. I'm working on the game as a character animator, as well as the voice/casting director. The game is an Action-RPG inspired by the likes of Zelda, MegaMan, Secret of Mana and general Steampunk awesomeness. It'll be featuring the voices of Erica Mendez, Kimlinh Tran and Marianne Miller as the three lead characters. Check out the kickstarter video for more details!

That's not even everything this time, but it's all I've got to share, so stay tuned for more awesome stuff coming soon!

Nice! You really have been busy this last month. It's good to hear that you worked with Zeurel. he has a lot of experience and talent in this field. It's also really cool that you're going to AlmaCon. As for TOME, I am excited to see episode 6, and Nylocke's new music video! As for Cryamore, what is it about? And, what will you be working on in this game, so that I know what to look for? This really has been a good month for you, and I hope that it gets better!
