I was recently asked to work on a series of public service advertisements. They will all be animated, of course. The topic is the serious state of our local river. Much to my horror, this wonderful landmark is rapidly dying. The culprit appears to be the huge increase in local development, resulting in massive amounts of fertilizer. The fertilizer is leading to a series of events which ultimately eliminate oxygen… and life… from the river. I had taken a couple of months off from animating and decided to fire up ToonBoom’s animation software SOLO. I’ve said it before and will say it again: This is incredibly powerful software. Though I am a huge fan of their STUDIO software, working in SOLO is an entirely different experience. You KNOW you are using a professional product. I’ll post updates on the production as it progresses. Stay tuned!
