I thought I’d share this with you all.

He talks alot about talking Japanese.   Meh….

He does have some good advice though.   He says start a Manga first.  Well that is the game plan for myself.

I’m actually working on several Manga’s and/or Webtoons.   I will be posting some work here including videos.  And since it is about how to make anime even if you are not the greatest artist this should help all of you out.   Recently I just got a great pipeline going for manga and anime.    If you want tutorials it will be under my category called “Anime Class!”

Now take some of this video as advice but some of it falls under goofy parody like advice and not really being 100% serious.

I hate the last part of the video but there are again some gems, especially the part about making a manga.

Making a Manga is easier than a full anime but as you create your manga you can start gaining fans and then Kickstart a full animation.    That is just one route.

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been also keeping up with this guys tutorials.    I’m always looking for easier and faster ways to animate an entire film.  This guy has it right.

This reminded me of those Japanese, novels/games.  Someone let me know the name.    I have been enjoying this.  I think he also uses a psuedo 3d method to create this animated series.

If you want to tell your story here is another way to do it.

 

This is a shot of the last day at PDI.  It is sad to think that all these people are now unemployed.

I always wondered what it would be like for a few of these guys to get together and create their own properties.

It would be awesome to see more artist owned endeavors. It would be awesome for some of these guys to get together and work on their own intellectual properties and make their own money vs working for the status quot.   I know a lot of people say it takes millions to make a movie but quite honestly that is no longer true.

Here is the breakdown.

1 person can make an animated feature.  It has already been proven.

MdotStrange, Jeff Lew, David Krupicz, Nina Paley, Tyler Gibb etc.  Each did an entire feature.

MdotStrange has done 3 films and is able to do one in a  year.    So in truth it does not take a massive team of 1000s.  Also it doesn’t take years upon years.   Jeff Lew did it all in 3. I have been following newer cg artists and they are turning out 3 minutes a month by themselves.  Imagine if you had 10 guys doing that together.

Now it is true you will not get Pixar quality but you can create pretty good quality that is watchable.  Also if you have to create out of necessity and find ways around limitations you could probably have some really cool styles coming out of it.

Here is the perfect example.  R’ha was done by one person in the span of 7 months.    It is roughly 5:30 minutes long minus credits and such.  Now imagine you had 10 guys working together.  In 1 1/2 year you could have a full feature with similar quality.

If folks like the Asylum, Video Briquendo and the folks behind Kiarra the Brave can turn a profit imagine what 3-10 great artists from Dreamworks could accomplish if they worked more the way these indies who have completed full length films.

The tools are there.  The talent is there.   Why is there not more of these?
