Do you use Papagayo for lip syncing to .DAT file? Wellllll guesssss what! I paid a programmer to update it with voice recognition capabilities. It's currently Windows / English only and only supports mono 16bit WAV files (and there are probably some bugs), but it's free and open source, so, what do you expect! Give it a try!

this is the third time i've tried to learn toon boom harmony and holy cow, it's finally starting to make sense to me! the drawing engine is such a breath of fresh air after struggling through all the bizarre points and curves that moho throws at you. i still need to spend more time learning about deformers, constraints, master controllers, and the masking process, but overall, this software makes animation feel much more accessible!

anyhow, here's my progress after a few days of playing around:

personally, i don't enjoy the process of storyboarding. to encourage myself to do it more, though, i decided to get my own storyboard book printed!

Hey! If you're in Greece, my cartoon will be playing on 11/21 at the Animation Marathon in Athens! It'll also be playing on 12/1 in Los Angeles at the LA Comedy Festival 365. Although why would you bother watching it live when you could just watch it online? Yeah. NEVERMIND!!

i wanted to test out animate's new auto-lip sync and after effects integration, so, i threw this together really quickly. overall, not too impressed with the lip sync accuracy.

When I was 11, my parents purchased a computer. It was a Packard Bell with 20mb of disk space, a word processor, solitaire, ms paint, an encyclopedia, and a program called Action, which was sort of like a prehistoric version of PowerPoint. Somehow, though, I figured out a way to make extremely crude animations and choose-your-own-adventure games.

When I was 12, I got a paper route. I saved up enough money and bought myself a video camera. Using my little brother's Micro-Machines and small explosives made from the gunpowder found in cap gun rounds, I spent my summer vacation making a series of clumsy stop-motion monster movies.

When I was 19, I downloaded a Flash 5 trial and within a couple of days, I began submitting cartoons to Newgrounds.

Now I am 26 and, through the generous support of Newgrounds (which, in a lot of ways, feels more like an alma mater then a website), I am working on my first full-length movie. Its production has taken me around the world (to exotic locations such as: Barcelona, Paris, and Kansas) and allowed me to meet a handful of my digital collaborators, all of whom I met through Newgrounds. Hopefully this movie will knock your socks off! It's got everything! Galactic symphonies, hot air balloon prison breaks, charlie horse ray guns, astronauts that want to be lumberjacks, pirates that don't want to be pirates, a yawn vortex, the tragic tale of two skin mites, and a friggin' ton more! If your're interested in receiving updates about the movie's completion, go to alanthebox.com and join the mailing list.

It's pretty crazy what you can do with a personal computer these days.
