Views for this blog have jumped up over the last few days, and I guess I shouldn't be surprised!
For those who don't know, and stumble upon this blog for whatever reason, I have launched a Kickstarter project for Bodacious Creed. Back when I was creating the concept for my demo reel, in my Pre-Production class at Academy of Art University, I naturally thought that stories about Creed would be, well, bodacious. I'm also a writer, after all, and the characters really got into my head.
Here I am, a year and a half after finishing my thesis and earning my MFA in Animation and Visual Effects, and Creed is still with me. In part, that's due to the fact that I polished up the demo reel a few times. Even if I hadn't done that, though, Creed and Boyd are two characters who won't let go of my imagination.
The Kickstarter project is called Bodacious Creed: A Steampunk Zombie Western. And yes, that link's clickable! Please head over and check it out. The video is short and to the point, and the rewards for backers are pretty great, even at the $1 level. I want everyone who pledges to feel connected to the project and to get something cool.
I was going to link the latest version of my demo reel here, which also features a train, but you can watch it if you scroll down on the Kickstarter page.
Oh, and here's an image that features prominently in the video.
So, please visit the project. Become a backer if you want, or share it on social media, or just have fun checking it out. It's been online for just over 24 hours, and is already 10% funded! It's good to see that people are excited about this project as I am.
