Well, this isn’t working. Which is OK i guess. I’m not sure that I expected it to work. I did get some feedback by asking a person who was tweeting about boredom to read the chapter 1 post. But, in general I don’t think too many people are interested in collaborating on a project like this.
Anyway, we will be proceeding with chapter 1 of Rabbitwinks in the style of Alicewinks. I just submitted chapter 1 of Alicewinks to the Tallgrass Film Festival in Wichita in October. I hope to be able to do the same with RW chapter 1. The drop dead date is July 8, so we’ll see how that goes. I think the text is (almost) done but there is still plenty of animation work to do.
Recently a film called Numberlys has started making the rounds of film festivals (Durango, Cleveland, Florida, San Francisco, TIFF kids, etc.) What’s special about that? you might ask. Well, it’s a Vertical Video that’s what. The first in film festivals that I am aware of. This on top of the Vertical Cinema showings in Europe is making me think that the time has come (as the walrus said) to try to crack that niche.
So, going forward I will probably use this blog more as a status update than as a cooperative writing project.
