And here we are with another yearly review.
This marks the 5th year I’ve done these type of posts, and I always get a kick our of reading them before writing a new one.
I get to see what we accomplished so far, as well as what I thought we’ll accomplish the year after.
In our 2018 review, I said this was a quiet year.
So how was 2019?
- Writing a feature film
- New courses
- Notable articles from this year
- Most popular video this year
- What’s next for 2020?
The main project I was working on personally was our upcoming animated feature film – Snowlands.
I finished writing the entire screenplay for the film, which took almost all of my time.
While there are still some rewrites to be made, the script is in very good shape, and I plan on working on pitching it in 2020.
I planned getting into pitching it last year, but it turned out it was hard to create marketing and pitching materials with a non-established story.
At first I tried coming up with a synopsis and a mock trailer, but it proved to be too vague without knowing the full story.
So I wrote the full story.
And made a cool concept trailer (:
That is why 2019 was again rather quiet.
We released 2 courses in 2019, and both were different from our usual software-oriented courses.
We’ve designed this course specifically for teachers and parents interested in teaching animation (to both children and adults), or even using animation to teach any other subject.
Animation isn’t easy, but we did our best to collect all the information one needs to be able to convey the basic principles of animation to students of all ages, and even help them build an entire animated project from start to finish using different animation methods. This course is your best starting point for becoming an animation educator.
