  1. Behind the scenes: Director's commentary

    I was fairly proud of the Creative Commons blog post. Its right up there with On Being Grandpop except I didn't steal ANY of this one. Pure me. The one thing that bothered me was that I really wanted to use a "fine print" block of text for the last part. The precluded me from breaking stuff up for dramatic effect like I usually do. I try to write like how I talk. I broke this concept for the "participation part" to make it work.

  2. The line:

    If you reprint my material I will find you. I will sue you. I will take your house and dog and I will track mud all over your carpet

    Originally ended with "and I will plant my seed in your woman". With most of my readership being female, this didn't work and was changed. It is an edit I still regret, but offset by the "broken and lamenting" line I stole from Conan the Barbarian. Such a great line.

  3. I remembered when that Best Buy iPhone ad came out that got that kid suspended from work. There was a snarky comment that this was made on a web page that would let "anyone make a cartoon in 10 minutes". Yay! Little tough to search for but voila!

  4. I could not have been more pleased with the results. Once it was done I giggled like a schoolgirl and played it over and over again :)I am very proud. The pacing and camera angles too some work but I think I really nailed the comedic timing.

  5. As I'm sure Lou could tell you, getting an algorithm to pronounce things correctly can be a pain. "Otaku" became "Auto-Coo". Likewise "kudos" proved nearly impossible to get right. Spelling these words phonetically usually worked. A lot of extra punctuation as well as the program's pause function were key to getting timing just right
