Using Sharpie markers, I'm creating an experimental animated short film on a Mac Mini.

FAQ's

Question: Dear Soogie, who I swear I have never met before, (I like your pseudonym by the way), I would really like to know more about your project. Can you tell me?
 
Answer: I would be happy, too, anonymous questioner.  One day, a friendly fellow named Cabbit Y. Tutelary introduced himself to me and asked for me to make a documentary of him as he goes through his day.  You see, Mr. Tutelary lives in a very interesting little world where anthromorphs, the natural world, and humans coexist and often get in each other's way.  In order to understand the relationship between these supernatural forces, he asked me (Soogie) to follow him around with my camera and record the strange vision that is often the world of Cabbit Y. Tutelary.

Question: Dear Soogie, would you happen to know if these animal spirits are friends of the humans. I am a human myself and would like to know this information because it seems nature doesn't seem too fond of us.
 
Answer: Sometimes the anthromorphs take pity on humans and help them out. Other times they really try not to interfere too much. I'm inclined to think that nature and man have a love-hate relationship. That is all I have to say on that topic..

Question: Dear Soogie, (again, love the pseudonym), is this jaunty day in the life documentary only intended for Mr. Tutelary, or may others see it as well?

Answer:  Cabbit Y. Tutelary is a very generous spirit who would like to share it's world with all who would like to see it.  Cabbit has told me of these things called film festivals, where patrons come and are entertained by images of comedy and woe.  There is one that is special to Cabbit’s heart, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, (where Cabbit spent a lovely summer) called the Ann Arbor Experimental Film Festival.  Cabbit would love to have the documentary played there.

Question:  Dear  Soogie, you will not believe this, but I have actually met Cabbit Y. Tutelary, and I would love to see this documentary about which you speak.  Are there any additional materials and equipment that will be needed to make this documentary?  If so, please say, because I so would love to have a day in the magical world of Cabbit captured on film.

Answer: Thank you for such a generous question.  Ideally I would like to purchase the following materials or services in order to complete the film :

-       External Hard Drive w/ 1 Tera of memory
-       Macbook Pro
-       HDV Ready Camera such as Canon 7D,
        Panasonic AG-AF100, or HVX200A
-       Transference of finished product to digibeta, $200.00
-       Professional Sound Editing
-       Lighting equipment
