Hi there, how are you?

I've got quite a lot of updates since the last time we spoke. Where do I begin...

The Project Epsilon Kickstarter is still open for another 5 days. It's pretty clear that we are not going to make it to the funng goal. Now i'm on a mad scramble for freelance work.

As an extra thing, I have set up a commissions page on my website. It makes the steps to hiring my services very easy. Some of the commissions I offer include (but are not limited to)

  • GIF animations
  • Animating (for flash games, music videos, explainer videos etc.)
  • Portrait illustrating
  • logo and graphic design
  • concept sketches/ paintings
  • watercolour paintings
  • custom soundFX

I am also building up a backlog of videos to be released on my Youtube Channel. As well as animations, I am am making timelapse videos with music and commentary and group discussions. The first episode is ready for uploadng and I'm quite pleased with how they are turning out so far. The only catch is that I have to listen to my own voice for hours when editing the commentary and it is a horrible experience. Since I have just joined the Frederator network, I figured now is a good time to start producing videos on a regular basis. By the way, if you are a music producer and would like some free promotion, I am looking for music to play in the background of my videos (as well as my own music). Some artists have been very kind and allowed me to feature their music and to them I am extremely greatful.

I also have my Goliath animation close to completion with just a few scenes to finish off. Goliath is my flagship project and it's probably the best animation I have made so far.

I guess this failed Kickstarter was a blessing in disguise because I have not been given the easy/ comfortable route. It also taught me a valuable lesson. For a Kickstarter project to work, you have got to have a large and dedicated following. There's no way around it.

Speaking of following, I'm now on Twitter and Facebook and of course, Tumblr for if you want updates.

From now on, I'm holding nothing back! Expect awesome animations, writing, concept art and timelapse videos from me shortly!
