By all accounts 2016, was a tough year for nearly everyone I know.  The election seemed to suck the wind out of everything.  My freelance work disappeared after July and has only begun making a comeback.  So here is a morning coffee toast to 2017 to all.  Hopefully, it will be a year of prosperity, creativity and vigilance.  Hope all of you are blessed with a great year.

Screwing around with short animation

Just playing around in Flash, originally had a plan to do short pieces for Vine, but heard that is going down the internet toilet.  But then there's Snapchat?!  HA.

Starting to take down the Flash site

Although the Flash site for Horrendous Fiasco will be up for a while,  I am beginning to disassemble it, making the Flash pieces into movies and trying to figure out exactly how it has to change.  I plan to move Horrendous Fiasco into a totally different direction brand wise and am looking forward to reinventing it and differentiating it from Knock Knock. 
Knock Knock will continue as the commercial production and children's show development company and Horrendous will move to a solely mature content company....not adult films exactly but a clear line in the sand so that there is no mix of mature and kid content on one site.  That might be bad.

Horrendous Fiasco 2016

Horrendous Fiasco Cartoons has been in hiatus for quite some time.   Initially, a re-branding of Knock Knock Cartoons,  Horrendous has become an oddity.  It's website is a Flash site and will be taken down soon due to Flash's inability to play on mobile devices.  So where does Horrendous go when we have relaunched Knock Knock Cartoon's here in Ohio where it once thrived.

The overall plan for Horrendous is to make a more specialized branch of Knock Knock (it's parent company) and create a unique brand, not a full service animation studio, but a development company for more adult content.  Knock Knock will take over the full service aspect of most animation productions, but will distance itself from any adult or edgy content.  In this way, both brands become more defined and the purpose of each can then objectively and hopefully, successfully be promoted.

Horrendous will go through this transition in 2016 with a new website launched sometime in the Fall of 2016.  When to take down the current Flash site will be discussed soon with our web-development team...Thanks!

So Yes

The Kickstarter for Longhair and Doubledome failed to reach its goal, but that being said, it was not at all a bad experience nor is it the end.  I am committed to seeing this through whether on Kickstarter or Indiegogo. 

Longhair and Doubledome deserve at least a complete half hour of their antics.

Snow Angel update

Over the past few weeks, I have gotten a good deal of feedback on "Snow Angel" and will be in production of a new animatic in early July.  I would post it but then I would ruin the surprise.

Finished the initial animatic for "Snow Angel"

Snow Angel was initially a demo created by Dave Fedan for Knock Knock Cartoons, many years ago.  The beautiful background work be Dave inspired me to create a film, this film.  Here is one of the amazing backgrounds. Originally, planned as a 4X3 production, we are now setting up the files for an HD roll out.

Getting started on several fronts

Both Knock Knock Cartoons and Horrendous Fiasco is gearing up on several fronts.  IT is building content time and I have been busily creating storyboards, art, and working on animation projects to be released before the end of 2015.  It is really great to get going.

Settling in Columbus

Well, settling here, back in Ohio, has been a tad bumpy.  Had a studio space, don't have a studio space, have work, have too much work, have other stuff to do.  Would love to get to some of the projects on the docket, hope I will be able to get to something fun soon.

This is always the balance between making money and making progress, they do not always coincide.
