DAYUM!!!! #Netflix green lights #Cannonbusters

Being one of many supporters of #cannonbusters when it was a #kickstarter campaign I am overjoyed to hear it got picked up by #netflix for a 12 episode run. It’s a bitter sweat moment because there has been no update from the campaign heads to anyone supporters since July 16,2016. Once you start a campaign through a social network platform it is expected that one should be transparent and open, that is so far from the actual truth. I suspect more than likely in order to get the contract with netflix the team had to agree to an exclusive buy out or acquisition from netflix, much in the same way when you want to have exclusive contents locked to a Game platform system. Yes it may appear to be bad business but it’s simply business none the less. All I hope after this neflix adventure wraps is that they honor the kickstarter campaign at that point I can be satisfied. Even though I want to see Children of Ether which was another production done with the blessing of #crunchyroll I will refrain until the cannonbusters fulfillment is honored.

This reminds me of another talented artist who had to still prove his merit the great #HayaoMiyazaki. To get green lit for his First major animation #NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind, he had to create a manga and publish it which basically became the blue print for the film which was a trimmed down version of the manga. I will wait patiently for how this will play out. Incredible times we are in. We got little witches series, a new voltron and god knows which other animated series that I may have missed that went under the radar.

DAYUM!! Amazing Composer, GameDev, Artist #samdillard Sam Dillard!!!

Just came across Sam Dillard’s music on amazon and then later his youtube page, all I have to say is wow. What normally draws me to a product is nostalgia and it occurred to me that is naturally the way to ones heart. Sam has recrafted some amazing remixes of some already amazing tracks which have been redone by many. I am no composer or musician but I simply love well crafted music. The sound or level of production is at the level where I have purchased several of his albums. In all honesty if I invest my hard earned cash into your product sometimes it means you have some form of value in my eyes. I won’t keep my banter going for long as my job is to showcase the artist or product and move along to the next.
The nostalgic throw back that reigned me in was Chronotrigger, Chronocross and Xenogears which came from the square-enix camp.
Sam Dillard has also stated he is a Game Developer and Artist, unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of studying his body of work which entails his Gamedeveloper know how or Artistry hopefully I will eventually make that time.
