The buttons finally arrived in the mail, and I can now sit down and begin writing out all the addresses to everyone who donated. There are about 28 in total who are eligible and didn't opt out of prizes. Both came out better than I expected, and I can't wait to finish up my end of the deal (minus those who have DVDs on the way, those wont come out till after my film is released).
Next up is the poster design.
I finished the design and line work for the poster and now I am handing it off to my good friend and amazing artist Mel Miller. She has a knack for coloring, texture, and everything that will make a good poster great! I am very eager to see how it turns out, and I am giving her a good amount of creative freedom to really allow her to push this thing beyond what my simple knowledge of color design would allow.
After my college, CCS, finishes their student show, I plan to start getting back in contact with all the artists who have agreed to help work on my film. The biggest hurdles are going to be the backgrounds and possibly sound design. I am pretty confident about the animation department, and am nearing completion on that end. These next months are going to be interesting, that's for sure.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. :)
