Hey everyone! Corey here. My buddy Ted & I were making the web series "Gundarr" for Mondo Media, but that came to a halt. We decided to make a hand-animated short film in Flash to keep the momentum. We would love to hear your thoughts! Cheers

Very nice! If you don't mind me asking, was it just two of you that made it? And if so, how long did that take? It moves great and looks like it was fun to work on. Sorry to hear that your production on gundarr ending. Glad to see you aren't letting the rust set in :)

Thanks Marius! Yes, it was just us two. We managed to get the whole thing done in about a month, mostly working on it full time. We were juggling part time jobs on the side here & there.

It was a ton of fun to work on, but very challenging. We redid a lot of shots. In particular, the 'first person' shot of the effects going through the canyons. I must have animated 7 different versions of that until we got something that felt great.

Hey Corey. You're on the homepage for this date.

Dedicated article here.

Great job! Sorry to learn of Gundarr's wrap as I've been an ardent fan of the series but happy to see that you're continuing with your animated content.

Thanks for posting RED here. Good luck!

Thanks Charles, much appreciated!

I should note that Stellar Jay Studios is two guys, myself and Ted Wilson. We both made RED, just to be clear.

We will be updating our tumblr next week with some 'making of' stuff, so stay tuned!
