Overall, the film is progressing in leaps and bounds thanks to all of your support! We are in the last big push of animation and we are very impressed with what the team has been showing. Carlos has been working with a fantastic team of concept art artists creating the Color Script for the lighting team (if you have the Member Blog you will see a weekend update blog post). We also have an wonderful team assembling shots and running simulation as well as a small core group of lighters that have been creating some sick imagery in our first rounds of lighting tests while helping finalize the lighting/compositing pipeline.
We wanted to send an Indiegogo update. In the month of April, we had all of the original artwork printed and sent to each of the artists for signatures. Thanks to Dave Correia for the great work helping us with this. We have been thrilled to see all of it come together and we decided to offer a PRINT ONLY perk through our InDemand IndieGoGo page. We also have 3 new prints from San Francisco artist Rick Kitagawa.
