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!! Heartbeast Studios #Lecturer “Benjamin Anderson” #heartbeast #uheartbeast

A wonderful lecturer and game designer. Benjamin Anderson pulled me in with his level of knowledge and simply understanding his audience along with vocal projection. He was concise and spoke in the tone which I found to be quite calm and relaxing, there were points where he had a monotone level but trust me I was too awed by the notion this guy was explaining something I wanted to understand in regards to Game Maker Studio. If you are interested in learning game maker studio, which is a wonderful game development tool check out this guy hey has a payed tier or you can check out his youtube videos which are free. If you feel to read my write up further read on. The below was actually written first but it was more me just blabbering on and I felt that should not be what you read first about the Benjamin for more of his work visit the links below. Have fun doing what you do.

Benjamin, where should I start with this talented game developer, gamedesigner, artist and lecturer. Lets start with a thank you. I thank this young man as I venture back into my game development world as without his lecturers on game maker studio I would be quite lost. He made understanding game maker studio quite fun and easier to grasp. How I came across his lectures was via which a friend Kevin(action)Jackson mentioned I should try as they have alot of great courses for cheap. I then saw Ben’s class on Game Maker and it was history at that point. Trying to keep this short so I can get into talking more about Benjamin, I loved the idea of Game Maker Studio but I hated the plug and play way of coding, fortunately Benjamin shared that approach and he wrote in GML Game maker language which was pretty simply my flow. I normally call myself a parttime programmer as I do more technical art related things and well lets not get into that. So back to Benjamin, he is a sure fire talent and is good at his job. My most recent game is based on one of his lessons as I was trying to make a game to work with my animation and here comes a lecture that talked about the very game I wanted to make.
