Animating with the new camera!
Hello all you wonderful Kickstarter backers!
Thanks again for your support. I finally got my new camera (and related equipment) in the middle of June after a couple weeks of setting everything up and doing tests, today I started principal photography on the next episode. I had five people helping out for 4 hours today and we got through about 10 seconds of animation (check out some of what we did today here). Only 90 seconds left to go for this episode :) It will definitely be finished sometime in August at which point I can move on to the remaining 3 episodes in Chapter 2 (which is where the Kickstarter minifigs will start appearing).
Thank you so much for helping me to get to this point. I absolutely love my new camera and animation software, I wouldn't be doing this without your support.
I shipped out the last of the posters this week so all the $50 and $100 backers should be receiving those in the next week or so, if you don't receive a poster or yours arrives damaged let me know as I've got some spares.
