Guys, I started this post weeks ago and never finished it, so, here it is, as is. I figure lemme rather get this out and keep things ticking along. What I’ll say is – Moosebox is looking flippen’ amazing 🙂 Everyone’s been doing really fantastic work to make this thing as awesome as we all know it can be. Really, can’t wait to share once it’s done 🙂 S’gonna be GREEEAAAT!
Hello dear my best dear best of friends and strangers. Today is an unusual day, in that I find myself with a bit of time on my hands to ponder the universe and do a thing or two, like make a new post on my site, perhaps read a bit more of my book and then doodle some new ideas for shows. What a blessing.
It has been a busy time, but I’ve found great relief from someone who’s agreed to take on a job that threatened my sanity, and then for other work, everyone seems to be doing what they’re doing best for Moosebox which is fantastic. We talked about Moosebox during CTIAF (Cape Town International Animation Festival) to a pretty full house, and that went down really well.
Super privileged to have had @alexiwheeler VP of animation & development at #Nickelodeon , Tansania Parsadh head of channel Nickelodeon Africa & @mikdog creator of #moosebox pop into our office to meet the JHB #mooseboxteam Thanks for giving us some of your precious time😉 #mindseyecreative #2danimation #animationstudio #proudmoments
I recorded the audio for the talk, which you can hear here (Edit: I haven’t uploaded it yet). Not quite the same without the visuals, but still pretty interesting?
Thereafter I went to Joburg to meet with Alexi Wheeler at Mind’s Eye Creative, the animation studio that’s producing and animating the series. It was super cool having Alexi there where the show’s being animated.
While I was there I got some time to get to know the MEC crew a bit better, to chat with Ryan the designer and Steve the animation director, as well as spending time with Jen and Nick that run the show and other stuff. Was a great, productive, time. Would have dug to go to MEC’s 7th birthday braai, but alas, I was knackered by the end of the week and spent much of the day horizontal.
Also, we went to The Animation School in Joburg to deliver another Moosebox talk. We had 2 hours this time and could afford to really get into it, and *still* were rushed for time. So, we could easily do a 3 hour indulgent talk on Moosebox 🙂
At the moment, we’re busy doing music and sfx for Moosebox with ‘Audio Militia’ in Johannesburg.
That’s the post, folks!
Bonus: kiff little featurette here where I say a few supportive things about everything and Moosebox gets some lurvin’. Nice:
