Wow, it's been a crazy old time hasn't it?

For the past few years I've had a to do list as long as my arm and I always prioritised making The Hit Squad above anything else. It's been so hard, like, the hardest thing I've ever done in my entire life. But I was determined not to half-ass the movie and rush it out shoddily.

So... here's where the movie is at

We have picture lock!

What does that mean? Well, it means that all the shots are complete in the edit and they won't be changed.

So what next?

Well, we have the audio which is currently being mixed along with the kick-ass soundtrack (seriously, it's amazing). We also have some tweaks in post production to finish off (lens flares and dust and stuff).

So when are we going to see it?

Well, distribution is the big fat elephant in the room and we are knee deep in working out the best plan possible to release the movie. Literally, my inbox is filling up with conversations with some amazingly cool people who will be helping get the movie out.

What happens in the meantime?

I am going to be talking about the movie a whole bunch. Starting with the Q&A I promised last update. Over the next few months loads of stuff will start dropping.

Also, now is the time to make sure all your addresses are up-to-date!

SPEAK REAL SOON

Burning question about The Hit Squad? Come ask it!

Hey everyone,

It's getting closer and closer to a decent final version and as I've been winding down, i thought that I'd answer some questions that anyone had about the movie, the industry or about me personally. I'll put out a video this week with an update and answers to any questions you may have.

Here's a link to my facebook thread where you can leave a question:

Hey all,

If you haven't been following the blog about the making of The Hit Squad then where have you been?! I've been updating every week with a little history and the journey that The Hit Squad has been on. Here's the last few:

So, other than the story of how The Hit Squad movie came to be, what's been happening recently? Well, still talking casting at the moment, I'm determined to get off that road sooner rather than later. I don't anticipate it taking too much longer because, basically, I'm itching to get the movie out and about.

Anyway, let me know if you're enjoying the blog posts! Some say hi to me on Twitter (@superpixelchris)

Love and peace

Hey everyone, so, New Year, new start!

I've been hard at work compiling a whole load of "making of" blog posts for The Hit Squad. It's time to start showing off what has been happening with the movie and revealing what will be happening next with it. 

The Hit Squad is definitely not dead! It's alive and well on my computer!

Here's the first of a weekly blog post to tell you about The Hit Squad and what has been happening with it behind the scenes: http://superpixelchris.com/2016/making-a-cartoon-movie-1-new-years-low-resolution/

Oh and for non-believers: here's every scene in its currently edited state, you just gotta squint a bit.
