A lot has happened in the last six months or so. We’ve been hired and fired by Disney,(laid off actually) worked with animation and VFX legend Phil Tippett, and decided to relocate ourselves. A detailed update can be found on our Kickstarter page here…
As some of you may be able to tell we’re re-vamping the blog a bit. The above video is a compilation of shots we’ve animated that are safe for public viewing and we’re happy to share. We’re updating and re-organizing our photo gallery as well, but most importantly you may notice the “donate” buttons on the side of the page. Those buttons are very functional. We’re starting to begin fundraising for all the post production expenses that await us down the road such as original music, sound design, editing, film festival entrance fees, and who knows what else. We still have a lot of work to get done, but if we can start bringing in a little bit at a time now we’ll be able to make a better movie faster, and distribute it to a larger audience when it’s through. So if you’re one of the people who discovered us after our Kickstarter closed, but still wanted to donate to T.P. we’ve created an easy way. Just check the rewards list on our Kickstarter page, and shoot us a message when you donate so we can add you to the list of other backers who are already awaiting their incentive. If you can help direct some traffic our way though Facebook, Linkedin, twitter, or any other social media that would be great. Thank you all for your interest and support.
We’ve posted a new update on our Kickstarter page that you can view here…
It includes a piece of animation from the film(sort of), and some process videos we each made, as well as some stills. We’ve updated our Teammates page to include our newest collaborator and friend Sophie Van Ronsele. She’s being kind enough to help us with the painstaking process of digitally painting out unwanted rigs, wire, and other undesirable objects from each frame of animation. Check it out!
Hey friends! We just updated our Kickstarter page with a short clip from our recording session with Voice Acting guru Bob Bergen, and the link is below if you want to check it out…
Also, we’re putting out a call for people experienced with After Effects and Photoshop to help us with digital painting and rig removal, as well as for a capable sound designer. So if any of you know someone…
We’re still plugging away over here. Take care!
Great news friends! Ever since we began to pursue this project we’ve been racking our brains to figure out how we would obtain quality voice acting for our film. We posted flyers around college drama departments, and even experimented with the notion of taking the task on ourselves. However, an unexpected opportunity arose and we’ve been tremendously fortunate to contract veteran voice actor Bob Bergen to provide the vocal performances for all the speaking characters in T.P.! Bob is a total pro who has been working in the industry his entire adult life. He’s been the official voice of Porky Pig since 1990, and we can’t wait to hear the voices he creates for our characters when we travel down to L.A. next week! You can click the link below to visit his website where you will find his animation demo reel and resume. Listen carefully for the iconic characters he’s voiced, and count how many of your favorite animated films and t.v. shows he’s worked on!
Upon perusing his website you may ask yourself, “How did they get this guy on board?” The answer to that is simple. Bob Bergen is about as nice and cool as they come, and he offered to help us out for as little as the Screen Actors Guild will permit him to work for. Pretty cool huh? Quality voice acting has been the last missing ingredient so to speak, and now that we know we will have it, all the key ingredients for an awesome animated film are on the counter. All we have to do is cook it up. So we’re gonna keep cookin’. Cheers!
