Hey all…

I have set up a Patreon campaign:

www.patreon.com/xilstudio

Check it out.

My goals are fairly modest, we are looking to raise $X to $Y per video, this would give me enough of a budget to get some really cool ideas shot.

You can see the rewards in the campaign.

What kinds of ideas?   Well I have a stack of ideas…over 200 in fact.

Moving Images Project:  Nearly everything you see in the gallery here:

xilstudio.deviantart.com/

Will have a video version shot…except of course those we cannot show on youtube…

I will try to get the original models whenever possible too.

    Short Series:   I have plans for a several short series, this would be played out 1 episode per month, leaving the other video to be something else.

    Fairy Tales:  Yes everyone has done the modern take on fairy tales, where the big bad wolf if a werewolf or whatever.   So let’s not do that.  Take the story, and update it, certainly.  Most of these were told for a moral, or had a kernel of real event inside them.  That would be fun to explore.

    Creepy Pasta:  Because why not? some of them (very few) could be made into interesting videos.

    FX based shorts:  Most of what we are doing could be considered this.  I call it the Micheal Bay Method.  The plot is thin, but it shows we could do a cool effect, so we build what we can around it.

   

Beyond that….

Fantasy, Sci-fi, Horror, Surreal and Comedy.   And blends of those things….

How This will be different than other similar channels:

Most of the other channels that do this sort of thing seem to lean to the video game sides of things, which is fine.  They have that covered and are welcome to it.   I love twisting ideas.  I love seeing exploring what else an idea implies for for it’s world.  And I love doing weird effects that are a bit creepy.

No videos, no charge.  Patreon would only take your money when I publish something, nothing published, nothing charged.  that means each month funds the next month’s videos.

And you could put a cap on how much you want to give per month of course.  You can see all the details on Patreon’s site.  It is a pretty good setup I think.

Hey hows the motion capture and inflation coming along? Been a long time since we talked. I have been very busy with college, work, girlfriend, and internship soon.

I want to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and I hope to actually work with you and get some more inflation tests going.

To as well, though belated at this point.  And yes!  You know about the 11fifty fund raising for a new studio right?  I work with them and it would allow us to do some really incredible inflation vids.   google for them!

Ya but still a lot of people are celebrating it. lol. I didn't know that. That sounds really awesome. Congratulations on the fundraiser. Now, I really want to work with you and your studio. That is awesome to hear that. Well, I will most certainly will keep my eye out for them. If you guys need an extra hand, I would like to work with you guys and if you need a good model for any inflation my girlfriend would certainly be a good candidate.

Really?  It was not that good, just a test.
you can read about the upgrades here: 11fifty.tumblr.com/post/711151… that is the part about the inflation.  Spread the word for me, I could use the signal boost (and I could use donations!).
The new method is to use motion capture, plus some digital trickery.  It will be pretty interesting.
