In previous report I have mentioned that this month we’ve got an incredible flow of donations and most of them coming from sales of Pepper&Carrot Motion Comic at our Gumroad page.
So, after thinking a bit and doing some calculations, I decided to start production of new animated episode of Pepper&Carrot!
The amount of donations collected to this moment is enough to do a first step of production – animatic.
The animatic will be made by Stas Kholodilin, who has participated in production of Episode 6 of Pepper & Carrot Motion Comic and who is also an author of Cut-out Animation in Blender video course.
When animatic will be ready, I will be able to make a detailed calculations about future production costs and… we’ll see then.
In any case, this time I’ll try to keep the production process as open as possible, just like with Morevna Episode 2.
For example, I would like to make sources publicly available to community during the whole production process (see my previous report about idea of GitLab/NextCloud synchronized storage). This will allow us to accept community contributions to this project. The animatic produced in the first stage will define a “structure” of final product and being published in open-source it will allow to finish the work with community forces or our own resources. Let’s see how it will turn!
