Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Today I am working on a Johnny Strange animation sequence.  The good part is there's no dialogue to sync up.  Well, there is one line: his famous line whenever he enters the Schneider home.  The not-so-good part is that it's a lot of frames for a small bit of animation.  With dialogue, I am able to recycle short bits of movements.

Also, Thanks to William Osborne, creator of App Man, I have what I call the Holding Our Own Pseudo-Wiki.  Wikia, or Fandom, or whatever it is calling itself these days, forbids Wikia wiki pages to contain the word "Holding", Believe it or not.  Thus, no "Holding Our Own" wiki.  I tried under other names but have had hassles.  I tried other wiki pages but I don't like them.  So I went outside the box and made a message board, much like Bricks In Motion.com.

There are categorized entries to read.  So far, only two categories exist; characters end episodes.  The episode category only contains "stubs" for now.  The site will be more fully elaborated upon later, but many regular and semi-regular characters now have entries.  I started this a while back, but was inspired to actually begin maintaining it after being introduced to William Osborne's App Man Wikia.

most of the text come from the Holding Our Own character reference, a personal file I keep to maintain continuity.  Other information will come from another private document, the HOO Continuity Guide, which I maintain for the same reason.  For now, you can read the character profiles, including previews of Missy's friends, at http://holdingourown.proboards.com

I finished Johnny Strange's song for the episode.  Brandon fields (DarthVincentPrice on BiM) really delivered on the song this time, pucshing his vocal chords to the limit.  He deserves every viewer's appreciation for this one.  This brings post-production at the 50% mark!  I hope to release a sneak preview soon...

Well, thanks!  I enjoy writing the Johnny songs.  My brother is a signed punk rock artist, and many punk rockers have "noun-adjective" nicknames.  (Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious, Joe Queer, etc.)  We've had many interesting and colorful characters, literally and figuratively, at our dinner table, hailing from all parts of the USA.  Anyway, one of the musicians we know goes by the name "Jimmy Odd".  That is the inspiration for Johnny Strange's name.
