It's been a very long time since I have blogged. My creative juices have all been directed towards the irrigation of our animation project. For months every waking moment has been devoted to drawing, animating, creating, discussing or just thinking about "BiNGE, Bourbon and Beyond" Again, be careful of what you wish for. I first started this project about 8 years ago. Months of being creative on demand takes it's toll. I like sex but I don't want it 12 hours a day with a half a dozen completions. I might still be able to do it for one weekend, but don't expect me to show up for work on Monday.
We started this endeavor just as hurricane Isaac hit, and it's in final edit now. I won't go into the technicalities of it all. Just a lot of friggin drawing. Otis surprised me with his directorial abilities. A real leader who knew what he wanted and got it from the actors and artists. An overwhelming amount of work, co-ordination and ambition to get it this far. I have met many people who call themselves artists or filmakers, but seldom got past just talking about it. We may have spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours to find it won't go anywhere. Still, we tried and I think that alone makes us a success.
Thank you to everyone who has provided talent to make this possible. The actors, artists, sound and production people for contributing their talent and time. Thank you to everyone else who have asked about it and have been encouraging us. We'll keep you posted as more comes out. Expect a sneak preview with in a few weeks.
