I'm now in the middle of a post-partum depression. I've been working on "Revengeance" now for almost three years, and today I handed in the final drawings for the film, and I'm feeling depressed - because the project was so much fun to work on and it was so intensive, there's an emptiness now when I don't have to get up at 5:30 am and draw all day. I feel like my baby is out of my hands and my life is somewhat meaningless.
So far, the response from the people who've seen "Revengeance" (the rough cut) has been phenomenal. I don't want to get TOO excited, but it looks like this may be one of my best productions.
Now comes the more difficult apart, finding a buyer or distributor for the film. And that entails doing a marketing campaign (posters, trailers, post cards and press kits) and trying to get the film into as many important festivals as possible. Festivals are where hungry buyers and press people are looking for the next hit.
Also, Jim Lujan and I will be at San Diego Comic-Con with a booth and panel to promote the film, we'll show some longer clips this time, and we'll have a few cast members on hand to talk about doing the voices. Stay tuned for more details.
I'll also keep you updated on the progress of our journey to get "Revengeance" to as many outlets as possible.
But as for my post-partum depression - I think I have a new "bun in the oven", I've just started work on my latest "Guard Dog" short, "Cop Dog", where our Oscar-nominated hero works at an airport, sniffing for drugs hidden in luggage. You just know that's not going to end pretty.
Thanks for your interest -
