Working on the Colony Floorplan design

I know we've been very quiet for awhile now -- progress was a bit slow at first while we sorted out some workflow problems, but we are making pretty good progress now. I am currently drawing and revising the colony floorplan. It's amazing how many inconsistencies had crept in before this revision, and a lot of my current work is just resolving conflicts.

I'm also adding a lot more detail that had previously existed only inside my head, so this has been a very good exercise for getting things down on paper where we can refer to it. A lot of what we're producing for this Kickstarter Pre-Production project is the "story bible" that we'll use to keep stories, directing, and design consistent throughout the series.

So, at the moment, my screen looks like the image below!

FSM Article about our project infrastructure

I wrote a column for Free Software Magazine about the free software infrastructure I set up on our server to support Lunatics. You might find it interesting:

Creating a Project Website for "Lunatics" with Apache, Zope, Plone, MediaWiki, Trac, Subversion, and the Cloud Too

I've run quite a few articles about the early stages of this project as part of my ongoing series "Making Free Movies with Free Software"  (I also wrote a few about my friend Konstantin Dmitriev's "Morevna Project" on which I helped a little and hope to do more at some point).

Now that I have a site up for Lunatics, there is an actual production blog on the site, which should be the most up-to-date most of the time (There is an RSS feed button on the main page). I suspended writing for that during the Kickstarter campaign, and will be picking up again right after New Years with details about the whole project.
