It certainly doesn't feel like spring has hit here in Chicago, and while we are definitely buoyed by the success of the kickstarter, this crummy weather makes it hard to keep our nose to the grindstone and continue work on this project.
And, I'm just gonna get real with you here -- as the producer/director, I (Adora) am pretty much the only one doing everything, considering this show is on a shoestring budget and people, ya know, mostly want to get paid for their work. And, that being said, in addition to an internship, I work a day (night?) job on the side to pay my rent. As a server. In a sports bar. And I am not sure if y'all know this, but it's March Madness this month, which means a LOT more waiting tables and a LOT less working on webseries stuff. Which, when you've spent all day dealing with grown men crying because their Alma lost, makes you want to curl up in the fetal position and eat an entire pizza lying down when you get home, because you're just that disillusioned with the human race.
But I digress. My point is, we are sorry (and by we I mean myself and my DP, mostly) that the thank yous for your donations and support have been lacking. Also, there's lots going on 'round these parts, I swear.
We got in contact with with Columbia College animation department and are now balls-deep in student animators looking for work. God, aren't students the best? Mostly because they don't demand compensation. We have so many talented artists to feature now. Wa-hoo.
Anyway, April should be bringing in more activity; we're trying to finish up our interview with Mimi's Garden entrepreneur Amy Fowler and check out interviewee John "the Duke" Wayne's new restaurant endeavor E+O this month, as well as get in interviews with Blue Nose Brewery and a monologue by Steph Douglass about a Queen Bee.
Also, a party to celebrate!!
Hold us to it, folks. We'll try to keep this blog on the up and up as much as we can.
Until next time.
