THE HOME STRETCH

Kill Cabin is coming up upon almost being done, perhaps! It looks like it's gonna be around 8 minutes in length. I'm relatively satisfied with the production. Pose wise there is nothing horribly complicated in it, certainly no ACTION sequences, but the animation is about as full as limited animation can be. More so than The Cancelled Show.

You'll have to buy the Doom House DVD to see it, along with shorts by other web animators like Shmorky and Bhlaab. I'm also planning on selling the short independently for $.99 for people who just want my short. If you don't like spending money at all... well... there's that preview for you.

Future previews aren't going to be as long as K.C.'s either. For 7 minute shorts, previews are really only going to net a 1+ minute preview, 11 minute cartoons a 3 minute preview, and 22 minute cartoons a 5 minute preview. That's how it works.

SCHOOL SHOW #0

I'm working on a small short starring the School Show characters. The plot is relatively simple and rather detached from the types of plots you would get with a full series. As a transitional piece between one series to another, the script and episode are going to feel a little remniscient of my past work. The actual The School Show is quite stylistically different, but this short is not quite so much, if that makes any sense.

Mostly it's purpose is to introduce some elements of the show but not all of them. You'll get a feel for the characters, and see the height of Emiko's lunacy, but you won't see the school or any SUPPORTING cast. It's just a short.

This will also be $.99. I haven't decided on a price for full episodes yet.

So... these would be paid for through PayPal, then?

I might pick up the DVD. Shmorky's contribution looks pretty interesting too.
As for the School Show short, it sounds cool and I'll probably spend the dollar to see it. However, will it be available in regular Flash format, or am I gonna have to buy an iPod or something?

This will be the best $2 I would ever spend. EVER.

Alex Johnson said...

Seems like a decent price for both. I'll probably buy the DM DVD and the SS short when they become available.

I don't HAVE PayPal. I don't have any way to pay for this kinda thing...frankly, I think the whole idea is pretty unfair.

Nate W said...

Let's just say this: I'll never get to see the show because my mom won't spend any money on anything ever. Aww man....

Not a bad Idea charging a buck for TSS Matt. I'd suggest offering like, a Season subscription at a reduced price or something. I find that people will consider stuff like this more if they have some kind of choice.

looking forward to TSS.

And niko, if he releases it in an "Ipod format" it can still be played with I-tunes, which is free and awesome.

How the hell do you pay for it?

99 cents isn't bad. I still have that Visa gift card so I'll totally get these when they're finished! If I remember, that is.

Wow, we have to pay for it? count me out. Matt, you seemed to dislike toons you have to pay for (the cntr alt delete joke), so why are you doing it now? I just hope that you don't lose sight of who you are and why you started this, beacause i've seen that happen to peeopl's work when money gets involved. Flash cartoons are awsome beacause they're an awsome mode of self exxpresion and an almost completely uncensored form of art. when you do it for profit, you have some restrictions when it comes copyrights and other things. basicly, what i'm saying here is that charging money may not only reducde veiwers, but it may also compramise your art
