BIG Announcement: Debut Screening Announced!

Cosmic Rage Siouxper Con Promo
Remember last week when I said I had some things going on behind-the-scenes? Well here part of it is. A DEBUT screening of Cosmic Rage is going to be held at a debut con, Siouxper Con, in my home state of South Dakota.

I can’t really put into words how excited I am to get to debut Cosmic Rage in South Dakota. Many people here know of the project and have supported it. However, there wasn’t a great avenue to get it debuted to anime and comic minded fans. Enter Siouxper Con and their amazing staff for allowing me to debut my work in South Dakota.

Following the screening, I will being a Q/A with those in attendance about the production of the project and also what the future holds for Cosmic Rage. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Again, a big THANK YOU to the South Dakota Arts Council for supporting Cosmic Rage. An exciting 2016 starts now!

Announcement: New Site Launch

Sorry for the late post today, it’s been a busy day. The big news I wanted to share with everyone today was the launching of my new site Reanimated Fallout a site where I can give back to the animation and motion graphics community by helping designers with software and WHY we make the decisions we do.

I have always been interested in teaching, I have taken teaching courses in high school and college and wanted to combine two of my passions. I am also doing a lot of experimenting with programs and techniques for Cosmic Rage, and I want to be able to share those and discuss them with other designers and animators. We all can learn things from one another.

It also allowed me to start putting my website coding and design skills to work as I look to expand my abilities into those areas. A mobile site will be in the works after I get a better understanding of javascript and jquery. The javascript and jquery will come in handy as I am looking to build out the cosmicrage website as well to make it more interactive and also for the episodes as well.

I have some great ideas for the cosmic rage site and I am very excited to start developing it sometime in 2013 and making it a unique user experience. Stay Tuned!

 

The Final Unveiling

Big news today, the final character for the first episode of Cosmic Rage has been unveiled. Today we introduce Marik the leader of the special forces to the Universe. With all of our characters you may be curious as to what will now take place of our weekly character updates. Well have no worries 🙂 Starting next week I am going to share some of experiences I had in Japan.  I want to do this for a few reasons, the first being that I had so much fun that I really want to share my experiences and share what I learned about the culture and such with everyone. Secondly, many of you may have recall due talking about how anime is essentially the only reason I ever got into animation and design. I have been trying to get to Japan for years before this and with that the experiences have easily contributed to new ideas for things and may have started the seeds to new stories and even influences to character designs.

Not only will I be sharing my trip but I will also be sharing other projects that will be wrapping themselves up. As you recall there have been a few production updates that I basically said I didn’t get a chance to work on anything because I was busy with freelance projects and other items such as some projects with friends.

I look forward to sharing experiences on the trip and look forward to a production update sometime early next week with the holiday weekend. 🙂

Riley: Unveiled

Today a new character was added to the Cosmic Rage Universe, Riley. Make sure to hop over to the character gallery page and check him out. With the addition of Riley, there remains only 1 character left to be unveiled next week. I am closing in on a personal milestone by getting the cast of the first few episodes posted up with small backgrounds for everyone to start learning about. Look forward to next week for the final character!

Character Unveiling Continues

I hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday yesterday. Hopefully nobody roasted too bad in the ridiculous heatwave that’s going on. Anyways, in new tradition our second character unveiling has been posted up in the character gallery, so make sure to head over there and check it out. Next week we will have another unveiling to expand the universe. Stay tuned for more updates as they come!

Release Schedule

Hey everyone! I am slowly getting back into the groove of working on Cosmic Rage on a  consistent basis again. As part of that process I way to start releasing more and more content on more of a consistent basis. Like wise people say, there is no time like the present. So today there is a new character in the character gallery and a few more characters are sure to come over the next few weeks.

Also, I have some people asking about some story tips so I am looking forward to setting aside some time to dive into that process again and a bit more in detail. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check back for some more updates.
