Branching Out ::

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Ready for something totally new from the Fictory?? The studio is in production on their very first puppet based productin!  Better’n Recess front man Hoagy Wing contacted the Fictory to help create a video concept for their song ‘Pi is a Transcendental Number.’  You might know Hoagy as a long time member of the band Slo Mo, a Philly favorite.  This side project of his is semi-education and 100% awesome!

As the song explores the mathematical concept of Pi, muppet style puppets will journey through the trippy, circular themed set.  Construction has already begun on the scenery, which consists of several experimental moving parts.  Fictory animators and artist are busy creating the puppets.   This is the Fictory’s first chance to work with puppetry as a medium, and an exciting challenge for the studio!

Our sneak preview this week is a few early design sketches of the moving set.  Check them out and get excited for this musing, mystical music video…

Comment on this post and be entered to win a sweet prize next week!

Stabb Gunner 3 ::

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Hello Fictory Fans and Friends!

This week, Stabb Gunner is taking center stage at the Fictory!  The creative team of Joseph Krzmienski and Courtland Ellis has been slaving away on the next installment of their original series.

If you haven’t read Stabb Gunner so far, it’s a story following the adventures of the duo Stabb Fisticuffs and Gunner, dangerous people in a dangerous town.  The two have banded together in a vendetta against the Mayor & Crime Lord of Scene City known as the Well Dressed Man.  Together they face the entire arsenal that Well Dressed Man has at his disposal and hope to come out on top.

Our sneak preview this week is from studio artist Courtland Ellis, who has granted us some top-secret art coming from volume 3.  Check out these exclusive stills from Stabb Gunner!

Barack Obama Line Test ::

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

We wanted to share this rough Line test for the star of an upcoming project featuring our President, Barack Obama! I realize this sounds weird but we’ll be bringing more information when it’s safe to talk about.

When looking at the loop, note the tiny duplicated figure on the top left. One of the reasons I’m not so concerned with facial accuracy for now, aside from the fact that this is a test, is because the final animation will be much much tinier than the large figure featured above. So as this blog post’s terrible pun suggests, there will be many revisions moving forward. But that doesn’t make the process any less fun!
