Ok, anyone here ever heard of the webcomic BlankIt?
http://blankitcomics.com/2008/06/08/bl ankit-0001/ = here's a link to the first episode
it tells a story about two guys trapped in an empty void. the realm of possibility for where the story can go from there is virtually limitless! and the story takes the reader to some interestingly engaging situations, and it has a ton of clever, witty situational humor. i thought that this would translate extremely well into animation, and so my journey began.
ok so i emailed the guys that make it, and i got the ok to make an animated series of it :D
now this is gonna be an independant project that im doing for the fun of it. im not getting paid, im not getting sponsored, and im not getting hired for anything. i'd had this idea in my head for some time now, but never really acted upon it. i have their full permission to use their story and their artstyle to realize my animated rendition of the comic. now its a pretty long series, and its still ongoing, so it should make for a pretty lengthy series. each episode is generally four panels long, and they update the comic every monday and thursday. each animated episode is planned on being a few comic-episodes long.
Now, i have no deadlines, and no guidelines, for this undertaking of mine. this isnt for a school project, so i may work on it at my leisure. thus, i will take much more time working on it, and give a lot more attention to detail.
Here is a screenshot of what i have so far, just barely done with the first comic episode.
as you can see, i'm trying ever so hard to maintain the original artist's style, and all credit for the comic and the artwork is due to Lemuel Pew, the artist, and Aric McKeown, the writer.
The music will be original, acoustic compositions by myself, and the voice acting, at least for episode one, will be provided by me and a dear friend of mine. however, as far as further episodes go, im not sure if my friend will still be able to voice act, as we will be going to different universities, and so will have little time together :[
a fresh, expressive, comedic voice actor will be very much appreciated for the character of "Lemmo". he is the comedic foil of my character, "Aric" (pictured below), who is the smart rational one, who always seeks to understand the universe they find themselves in. My character is droll and witty, while Lemmo is the silly, uncaring, laid back guy. anyone interested in voice-acting for him, please pm me, and we'll work something out! *pretty good microphone would be necessary*
Im going for professional quality here :] (or at least as proffessional as my laptop and nonexistent budget could provide)
or right, that picture i mentioned earlier...
