Ok, so the “part one” back in June turned into a whole summer disappearing. We were hoping to have reached a milestone with our demo before the end of that month, but forgot to take into account the more frenetic pace of a short summer term of graduate school, travel, kids at home, etc. We did make an enormous amount of progress on our demo this summer though. We now have a rough draft of the complete animation for 11 characters, the food truck area is done, the house is decorated, users can enter nicknames and room names to hang out with their friends. Everyone has done an amazing job. I love our team!
We’re also re-vamping our “Flippity Flops” channel. We spent a lot of time thinking it over and we really want to consolidate our efforts under one theme. Soon we’ll put up more behind-the-scenes peeks at our motion capture and animation process, but they will have a different format and a different name. No worries though–we’ll definitely link to it from here so you can easily find it.
For the same reason, we’ll be replacing our iFilmFlops t-shirts with Bacon Wrapped Avocado shirts. We’ll post the new designs soon. Let us know if you’d like one or if you think one of our other characters should also get their own shirt. The Hand has one, soon BWAHAHA will too, but if you’d rather have the Corazons or Mum or ZBBBD, shoot us an email from the contact section at the bottom of the page. If we get enough response, we might make some available for purchase. (Right now you pretty much have to work for us to get one.)
Keep an eye peeled for updates! It’s getting exciting over here.
