Greetings, people of the Newgrounds!
It is once again time for some kind of update:
A few days ago I finished up my newest entry for the "Nooni Media Animation Extravaganza"-tournament, called "Dreaming High". As usual I had 3 weeks to come up with an animation, this time to the theme "long distance", and I chose to go with a "distance between dream and reality"-kind of thing. I don't think that I've ever had so much fun making an animation. I was quite fortunate. The first 4 days of the round was holidays, so I had a little extra time to work on the beginning. From there a time-consuming school project began, but luckily I was able to finish early, and so the last 3 days of the production my teacher actually ALLOWED me to animate in school - all day! It was also a lot of fun to show the process of animating to my classmates and hear their thoughts on the product.
All in all I felt like I ended up with an awesome animation, so it made me a little sad to see that it did so poorly here on NG, where as to a short like J&J which I didn't put quite as much heart into, and didn't have any actual plot is currently my highest rated video.
I know that my kind of animations may not be for the majority of Newgrounders, since parodies and randomness seems to be where it's at. I enjoy those kinds of animations as much as the next guy, but I do wish that there were a little more room for animations of a different genre at times...
I love animating and telling stories, but what's the point if no one listens? If anyone out there enjoys my animations, I only ask that you consider subscribing to my YouTube channel and perhaps help me share my videos. If you'd like.
The last round of NMAE is closing in. After that I have a ton of projects that I want to try animating.
I am also currently working on producing a series for Danish Television, so that's kind of exciting as well! Wont spoil too much before I have more details though!
Stay tuned and have a good day :)
