Things have gotten extraordinarily busy in my life. A couple days after the last blog post I accidently jammed a carving tool through my thumb while working on a sculpture and wound up knocking out one of my tendons. At the start of September I had hand surgery to repair the damage, and since then I've been going to therapy in Center City to help aid the healing process. While I shall value my properly healed thumb for years to come, it is a nuisance for my already busy schedule.
If you read this blog, you probably know that I directed another animated feature film, The Romantic. A lot of stuff is brewing with that film. We have a screening on October 15th at 8:00pm at The Franklin Institute as part of the First Glance Film Festival, Philadelphia. The week after that we're releasing the film online for free for audiences to download/share/stream/watch. Then in the start of November, we're screening in another film festival. While all this is awesome, preparation is cutting into my Burp's Christmas time.
I'm also working on a secret mystery project, details will be announced late next month.
As I've mentioned in previous posts, we're still in our "Getting our Face On" stage - preparing to go public with our fundraising strategy. Our original goal was to have this stage completed by the start of September, but because of the aforementioned distractions we unfortunately need to postpone the conclusion of this phase until a future date.
Unfortunately, until my life slows down a bit (around mid October), I'm not going to have the time to keep you guys abreast of my progress with Burp's Christmas. The producers will be updating the blog periodically, letting you guys know what there is to know.
So, until I return, enjoy the approaching harvest season. By the end of next month I will have a cornucopia of artistic delights to share with you. Until then, peep some black and whites of Gunther and Stephanie.
