Remember ‘Hell Week‘?
That was when I was up to my ears with storyboard work and barely had time to breath.
Ahh, the memories.
I would post some links to some other cool stuff because I had no time to write. It’s good to spread some link love once in a while (that’s from Blogging 101) so I think I’m due.
I’m still an unemployed bum at the moment, so there is no ‘Hell Week’. I am busy doing stuff for myself, not for money. In due time, in due time.
But read this first.
I’d like to inform you that someone emailed me about some potential STORYBOARD WORK. Here’s what it said:
I am looking for Storyboard artists in the Los Angeles area AND or a few great ones who can work from home and turn around boards fast and meet deadlines.
This project is a kids show. We will be making many 11 Minute episodes and will need many great storyboard artists.
Humor is a must to make the stories work. The age of viewers will be pre-school.
I have asked her permission to post up her email address, but in the meantime if anyone is interested, head to my contact page, send me a request and I’ll forward you her email address. (UPDATE: I will be responding to you with a different email address from the blog, so check your SPAM folders!)
I am assuming this is paid work (I’ve asked for confirmation…you know how I feel about that) but I have no other information at the moment.
I am also assuming they want some level of experience and if you are going to apply, make sure you have some real work to show and a resume.
Be professional. Always.
Hmm, I may have to start a job board or something.
– Next, the cool folks at Animation Mentor (no, they are not paying me) have a brand new website. Go check it out if you’re interested to learn 3D character animation from the pros.
– This was a couple of weeks ago, but Jaden over at Screenwriting for Hollywood wrote some nice things about me and reprinted one of my articles. If you’re into writing screenplays, reading movie reviews and other cool stuff, you can click over from the banner in my ‘Karma’ section (on the right).
She just rocks. Period.
Here’s some of the ‘other stuff’ I read.
I’ve been drawing silly pictures for some of these fellow bloggers that I like.
The first is for Naomi at IttyBiz. I drew it for her son’s birthday and it’s a little…um…nasty at first glance. If you knew Naomi, you’d know why she thought it rocked. She’s a bit of a potty mouth and knows lots about marketing and stuff.
And the drawing subject does have a meaning, but it’s too long to explain.
This one was for Alex at Someday Syndrome. He’s also a butt-kicker about ‘following your dreams already’ and stop saying you’ll do it “someday”. Nice stuff.
And another one I did was for blogging buddy Brett over at 6 Weeks. His whole blog is based around the Fight Club thing (what is it with guys and that movie?).
He does these ‘Viking Friday’ posts and usually his pal Friar does a cartoon for him. Friar was away one week so I offered.
All part of my devious plan of…uh…nothing really.
And lastly one of my newer blogging pals, Steph, has launched a new site EditQuest. It’s a copyediting service for writers in the fantasy fiction genre. It’s for novel writers looking to get published, but it’s also for short stories, blog posts, ezine material, journal and mag articles, gaming copy…any fantasy writing. If you love that sort of thing and are maybe writing the next ‘Lord of the Rings’, check EditQuest out.
She has also sparked the idea for my next post. Since I razzed ‘Igor’ so hard for the wrong things it did, I’ll tell you about some of my favorite animated flicks and what they did ‘right’.
Not just in general, but my favorite ‘moments’ from each. Because those moments are important.
So there is a real post on the horizon very soon.
You won’t have to wait a week either!
