Welp, today is the definite, 100%, honest-to-god, we-mean-it-this-time deadline for the second Lugz cartoon, and I'll post the link once they put it up. It still has way too much dialogue over-explaining things that would've been better cut out, but that didn't fall in my jurisdiction, I animated and contribute sight gags, personal style flourishes and a few changes here and there (mostly to the attendant character). I wish to have a little more input to the story for the next one. It's a cartoon, so I want there to be very little spoken dialogue because the main focus should be on the action, the animation, the character's expressions and body language. The best things are said wordlessly. That's always the most fun. People connect with that better, and body language is universal. Anyone can see it and everyone will get it. With the dialogue over-eplaining things, it just feels slightly insulting to the intellect of the viewer, and it shoehorns an unnecessary side story onto the viewer when the simpler premise is more than enough.
The cartoon is about gas pumping innuendo, so there's really no need to make the cartoon too long and deep.
|Still a great project, still fun to watch. Enjoy it when it's out.|
|This'll be you when you see the completed music video!|
I'm very pleased with how everything is coming along and will work steadfastly to progress my work until all my projects are done and ready to show.
