This was born out of an idea for a parody. As I struggled to get attention on Youtube with original IP’s, I started to realize that its the parody videos that get the most views. So I figured it was about time to try that, but without losing my own character, Mr.Sneaks. Sure, this didnt get as popualr as the Sonic video on my channel, though I’m still glad this turned out critically well, especially in the sound department. Newgrounds liked this film a lot too 🙂
This project went through many phases. After graduating in late 2013, I still did not have any new films since 2011. I was losing hope as I was spending more and more time in solitude, not to mention I had no steady work. So in my deepest depression in early 2014, I forced myself to animate something with the same characters I had in my unfinished project for my final year in university. These are the walking plants I was obsessed with for a while.
It took about 4 months to get the animation done, and it took even more time to get the music and sound ready. And by the time that was done, I realized that something else was missing, and so I changed the original intro into a more dramatic one, as it actually shows some plot elements, which I want to slowly unveil with future episodes. Also, I finally added the typical “subscribe” begging screen, but with a little preview for an extra treat 🙂
So finally, after over 2 years you can see what I was up to.
Thanks to Donna LeBlanc once again for giving me this awesome opportunity!!!
