Hey everyone! Nice to meet you all. I am, like all of you, a fan of VGHS, and am totally stoked for film school because of the variety of topics we'll cover, some of which I am very interested in to flesh out my existing skills and acquire new ones.

What you're looking for
On top of working on my own projects (specifics are not yet set in stone) I am willing and excited to lend any or all of my abilities to those in need. I am a sort of jack-of-all-trades but a master of none. However, I do have my strengths, and can competently perform things like character design and songwriting at a professional level. I also have over 10 years of experience with the Adobe suite, with a focus on Photoshop and Flash.
My own project as it stands atm is a WIP weekly blog with an animated character as the focus of the show. He will be present in the real world in the blogs (a la Roger Rabbit) so there will be live action characters as well who don't have as much screen time and may or may not even show their faces (appearing from the torso and downward, kind of like the adults in Peanuts cartoons). There are also 2 other animated characters who exist fully in the animated world (1 of them has the ability to visit the real world as well) and act as the show's antagonists.
I'm unsure at the moment of what the blog will focus on, but I know that I want it to be whimsical. We won't be talking about real world events, but may caricature them in some way at times. I also know that I want the blog to have something to do with music; either independent or overseas artists, or a mixture of both, in order to get more unknown music some exposure. Focusing the show's content on gaming information or parody is definitely an option as well. Like I said previously, nothing is really set in stone.
I had a music podcast based on the characters from this project that ran for about 10 episodes, and have the basic facial animations for the main character done, as well as the general idea of what the voices of the characters sound like. Back then and also now, I've been the sole person running everything. I love working together with others though, so if anyone is interested, I can get into more details about what the past show was like and my vision for my new show. I'm trying to be a bit more realistic goal-wise with this show, and don't want to get into anything really technically hardcore (unless someone's willing to do that for me, lol). Basically, I want it to be a comedy show disguised as a weekly vlog which will typically be about 15 minutes long.
