This last week I have been mostly working on our animated short. Animation is a slow process, but we are making some great progress. It might be a month, but I do plan to get some fun concept art to share with all of you.
I have also been working on a bid for a potential client that will require a mix of a CG character in a CG environment, with a live action actor. I’m collaborating with some other companies to do the live action, and sound, since those aren’t services we offer. I will find out later this year if the project was awarded to us.
I’m also very excited that our followers on Twitter are growing. We now have over 400 twitter followers. I don’t always put as much effort into twitter, but I’m trying to give it a little more of my attention.
I talked to my attorney yesterday, and he finished drafting the articles of incorporation to make my sole proprietorship into a corporation. He will be filing it with the state of California today, so now we just have to wait and see how long it takes to finalize everything. I have never been the CEO of a corporation, so this is all very exciting to me. I have a lot to learn, but I have some great advisors to help me along the way.
The big news for today is that this evening is our first Society of Creative Professionals Mixer. Currently we have RSVPs for 46 people going, and 23 maybes, which is much more then I was expecting for our first event. Typically half the people that RSVP actually show up, but I’m excited to see what the turnout ends up being. Hopefully after the first event the word will spread about it, and we will have even more people at the next mixer. This will be a great way for me to meet different artists in the area, and hopefully those that attend will also get something out of it. Event details and RSVP
