Spider Progress Report 6

Hey folks

I think we’ve officially crossed over from pre-production to actual production.

Lately we’ve been having regular and fruitful meetings with the internal team and we're seeing real progress from everyone. Our animators have started keying out the main fight sequence in the finale. We’ve also received sound sketches of the main theme from our composer. It will be really great to watch how music can capture a story in a totally different way from words or images. We’re listening intently to really make it a masterpiece.

Rest assured things are coming along nicely.

Some pics have been popping up of the key chains on social media as they start to arrive. Tag us @CentralCityTower or #spiderstories and let see how you show off the swag.

Last note for this update: We’ve been trying to come to consensus on the design of one of the last key cast members featured in the pilot. Below you can see a few concept sketches of Musi, an intrepid young girl traveling with the merchant caravan.

Which one is your favorite? Drop us a line on Facebook or leave a comment.

Thanks! You guys are the best

      I like 10 & 14 's hairstyles and the inquisitive look in 10's eyes.

      In my opinion if Musi will fight at some point in time the streamlined look of 2 works best. If we want her to be a mysterious girl with a few tricks up her sleeve then 13 or 14. Great job all around!

      I love her posture in 5, and agree that 14 has great hair. I like 4 as well!

      14 for the hair, gorgeous, but 8's personality is just jazzy. Thanks for these lovely updates, this is so exciting!

      Thanks for the continuing updates, it's great to follow. RE the concept sketches, numbers 6 and 8 stood out to me

      Thanks for the responses guys, keep 'em coming.

      @Lorelle, we'll get on that immediately.

      Thanks for the update, this is exciting!

      As for sketches, 14 for the hair is my favorite, followed by 4! I like the simple look of the clothing on 5, though.

    8. Tatiana King Jones on July 10, 2013

      aww look at Musi! The bottom two sheets makes her very childlike and whimsical (would think that might be the theme you're going for since she's a young girl traveling with a group of misfits. lol).

      Sketch 14 pose/hair. Sketch 10 face/hair. Sketch 4 clothing.

      14, definitely.

      My keychain came to me broken. :( How can I get a new one?

      I like 3, 4 and 14.
      Also thanks for the update, looking forward to seeing the Spider Stories come to life.
