Having A Drink October 27, 2010

Howdy blogger friends!  I have let the Red Rider updates fall to the wayside in favor of actually working on it.  We had an inspired soundtrack recording session with Josh Dumas, Keith Kusterer, Tom Santiago and Tom McGettrick.  Holy crow did they rock!  The music propels the animation to a whole new level of life!  Here is a teaser mp3 for your auditory delight.

And if that wasn’t enough to wet your whistle, here is a pic I snapped while beating the crud out of our hero in the bar scene.

A Desperate Man

Red Rider encounters a desperate man

Red Rider encounters a desperate man

A scene not necessarily furthering the narrative but developing the character of Red Rider.  Here we see the Red Rider encountering a desperate man in obvious distress.  One of the  white birch trees that form a ghostly gate into the town of Cayenne are swinging with a most strange fruit.  Who has left a man to such a ghastly demise?  What could possibly have been his crime?  I have a feeling we will find out in the next thrilling episode of “Red Rider’s Lament!”

Creature In Its Habitat October 2, 2010

Here we see the reclusive North American JBessoff laboring intensively at what we can only surmise to be some sort of endemic artistic ritual.  It is rare to find such a species away from it’s habitat.  We at the Victorian Identification Society for Native Species refer to this collection of paper, glue, toys and various ephemera as a “make-shift animation studio.”

The interesting thing to note here is the fact that there are three distinct animation sets on three separate tables.  The behavior of the JBessoff is often a delightfully perplexing riddle to solve.  It is this casual observer’s deduction that the creature is attempting a deep forced perspective shot inspired by the iconic work of Douglass Trumble.
