This anime has been a long challenge.
It started months ago. Little by little, we collaborated. Exchanged ideas. Tossed around crap. I think Shoprocks said something sig-worthy somewhere. But then things started to change. Someone shared storyboards. Someone shared animation. We started having meetings that didn't solely revolve around Batman. It was at that point that we realized this was not your typical internet collaboration. This was going to HAPPEN.
A couple of us went on vacations, and the project didn't fail. No matter how slow, everyone kept working here and there. And then the animating began.
Animating is hard. Time consuming. In the depths of your computer, mediocre things like life and sleep begin to seem like theoretical concepts. Then they become
theoretical concepts. As your energy wanes, your apathy grows stronger, tempting and poking you to sleep. It's grueling.
So that's why when the animating started, I knew what I had to do. I have long doubted my drawing ability. I doubted my work ethic, and my ability to deliver animation. But one thing I could not accept was seeing my comrades struggle through the toughest part of this anime with me offering speculative offerings of encouragement, and gifs of Simon Pegg clapping enthusiastically.
So I knew what I had to do. I had to animate.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DESbfgXImWs
It's not as good as anyone else's. It's not finished. But it's something.
And I promise to never give this project up. I will never let any of you down. I will never run around the internet without having my share done. And I will never. Ever. Desert you guys.NOW LET'S GET THE FRICK DOWN TO WORK!
