Hey there peeps and peepettes,
Just got finished with my novice round NATA entry, and what a month it's been. I started the month with no internet, went to an out of town graduation (with some wonderful flight cancelations and delays), worked on a shoot, and somehow got around to actually animating. All in all, I had fifteen days to actually animate this piece, not including the two days for audio editing and writing.
Speaking of audio, Chongo did an excellent job with his lines. You should check him out if you're feeling up to the challenge of sitting and watching cartoons.
The toon is a semi-parody, semi-original take on awful scifi shows from the seventies; you know, the ones with intros like this. I mean, what is that? Is that a robotic bear playing with a child? But yeah, you get the point. There's a heap ton of little in-jokes for scifi watchers, and out-jokes for those of you that aren't. Wait, in AND out jokes? Jesus, there's something for everybody.
The piece ended up being my second longest yet (the mp4 version is exactly 5,000 frames long), which, in hindsight, was an awful idea. I still got it done, though! I even did a little remix* of the main song for the credits.
Next month should be another hectic one, I'll probably be working on a documentary for about ten days. I should be back with 20ish days to animate, just in case I make it through to the next round. I'm also working on two pieces for this in-between-rounds-down-time, might actually get one of those up soon.

* by remix I of course mean that I sloppily added snippets of Chongo's voice over portions of the song while half asleep in a caffeinated haze at 3AM last night.
