We haven’t done so much work done these weeks; we’re both incredibly busy these first weeks of the new year. Moa is trying to get in shape for applying to the police school or military and I have so much work I’m practically laying in a pool of my own sweat in the evenings. And we’ve been busy in the weekends when we usually get the most work done. We’re both pretty busy this weekend also but we’ll see if we have some time to skype tomorrow.
But we’re almost done with chapter 2 (thank so much for the comments as usual!) and we’ve started to work on chapter 3. The thing is that we don’t have as a clear idea what’s going to happen until the big build up at the spectacular ending!
We’ve been pretty slow on the design apartment at the moment, since we’re trying to focus on the script, but here’s a reference pic for Vincent that Moa wanted me to upload so we’ll get some eye candy in here.
When I counted the script for chapters 1 and 2 it’s all together 77 pages!!! And I’m the cutter who tries to tell Moa that we soon will have to kill our darling with a chainsaw. As for now, the book will contain 12 chapters.
I always forget about the blog when we're working so Moa have to constantly remind me of updating it.
(I want apologise beforehand because I have no spell-check at the moment)
We haven't done such tremendous things these weeks, Moa's sick for example (everybody's sick right now) but we do have sent out chapter 2 for feedback and we already got amazing feedback on chapter one!
A huge thank you to everybody who takes time to read our script and give us constructive reviews, you rock! <3
I have also done some research about the powers are characters are gonna have. Funny thing is that 4 of the powers are under the term psychokinesis, I had no idea. But mostly I've just read about how DC and Marvel impersonate similar powers in their comics.
Also: our financial problems are no more! Well, sorta, but we do have a solid plan B in case things don't work out so THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING YOU GUYS! IT'S TRULY AN ACHIEVABLE DREAM! FUCK YEAH WE RULE ILOVEYOUMOAWE'RESOOOAWESOOOOME!!!!!
Sorry about the outburst of overconfidence, but you do need to boost your ego sometimes if you want to do these things. Otherwise there's a possibility you don't think it's worth it.
(but it totally is!)
We kind of had a forced break during December because Moa got eye surgery (yikes!) and I was sick a lot and then there were the obligatory lazy holidays. But now we're back with new energy
Our new year’s resolution is to finish the script completely. We will hopefully also soon start to look at stipendiums, donation and funding’s so we can finance our dream (why is money such a big issue when it comes to everything that's fun?). If Joss Whedon happens to read this; please contact us immediately!
Today was the first writing session of 2013 and we have discussed chapter 3, made new to-do lists, talked about the upcoming website(!!!), cleaned up the Spotify list, worked on the pipeline and been eating a shit ton of carrots.
We also started talking about what to name our company and then Moa broke the insanely good idea to call us Titmouse! After this comic by the brilliant Curt Franklin and Chris Haley:
But then, of course, there IS already a famous company making cartoons called Titmouse Inc.
What are the odds? We cried for half an hour and then ate some more carrots.
Since Moa and I already have made a promise that we will finish this comic no matter what, look forward to a 2013 when things will really start to happen! Who knows, in a year from now, its maybe already being sketched?
