Our art & fx guy, Sal doing that thing he does. Go show Snowgum Films some love, you guys!

Only appearing in 28 shots (for a collective 3,211 frames of animation), her appearance in our film ends up crunching in at a little less than two minutes of screen time. Don’t be fooled by this time, it betrays the many years’ worth of development and design and many paths explored. With heavy consultation with the fan community at the Discworld Conventions throughout the years, and again online right here, we slowly and studiously pieced Beryl (and Tourmaline) together with... your help.

And she is wonderful.

Performed by Troy Larkin

Designed by Sal Vador 'thedarkcloak' N

Modelled by Marko Petrič

Textured by David Burbury and David Terblanche, with additional work by Christian Bloch and Sal Vador ‘thedarkcloak’ N

Animated by Erik Castillo, Dor Cohen, Dakota Dann, Daniel Fox, Daniel Goodwin, Tom Heyerman, Anna Huber, Yuanchen Li, Jimmy Mole, Mark Nicholas, Dariusz Szczuraszek and Vladislav Vankman

Fabric Simulation by Marc Albrecht

Special thanks to Jay Garrison

Anna gets special mention as character lead, shaping and directing our matriarch’s performance with the animation team in what was absolutely our most difficult character to find the balance for. And by the time we'd discovered the character, she was done in what now feels like a whirlwind of animation. A character fighting to get out!

Please join me in congratulating Anna and the team!

Got it taken down from the Facebook page for Family T-shirt, however the product remains on Lonely Tee's website.

Lonely Tee has a dmca page, which leads you to Gearlaunch, and their contact there. The email given does not work. However the contact name provided can be easily tracked and found.

And then there's this: https://www.reddit.com/…/commen…/5eerqk/suspicious_activity/

Have emailed, and messaged Gearlaunch here, their website, and Twitter. I hope they resolve this issue quickly as to not further damage my brand or theirs.

Special thanks to Deb Wise for the amazing leg work she's doing.

Details in the comments below.

STOLEN ARTWORK alert - Family T-shirt / LonelyTee has knowingly stolen my artwork and is selling it on merchandise.

They've been emailed and notified, however, they are actively trying to cover their tracks. Be sure to spread the word, I'm sure I'm not the only artist that has been ripped off by these people.

DO NOT BUY - http://lonelytee.net/judge-dredd-1…

These people are also involved and are actively and knowingly doing everything they can to cover their tracks. Let them know.

FckGoblins - The Card Game

FuckGoblins Kickstarter:

http://www.kickstarter.com/…/fuckgoblins-fast-paced-cheeky-…

And the first gameplay demo for FuckGoblins is here!

...

Watch our test subjects Ian, Darin, Dan and myself (or at least all our hands... but hey, our hands have LOTS of personality) throw down a game of FuckGoblins after a brief overview of the rule set we're playing with.

There are many variants and modifiers in the FuckGoblins game, even some of which can greatly change the length of a match, and others which can unpredictably level the playing field - all of which give the game a high replay and entertainment value.

WTF is Fuckgoblins? Glad you asked!

It's a card game with super simple rules for quick throw-down mayhem. Say the word "FUCK" a whole lot, screw over your friends, have a great time doing it too! It’s so easy even grandma can play! Watch the video!

Some of us are very excited about the new Friday the 13th Game on Kickstarter (seriously, go have a look at who is involved! - https://www.kickstarter.com/…/6133…/friday-the-13th-the-game - it ends TODAY!)

As film-makers, it's hard to ignore the special effects that have gone into so many iconic moments of this classic slasher film franchise.

Agreed!

“It’s incumbent on us as artists that we start to be heard again,” added Gary Bourgeois at the Sound on Film conference.

As we start ramping up for creating a couple of films, it's hard to forget one of the classics that comes up in discussion pretty frequently.

Love the atmosphere, the effects, the performances, and how wonderfully everything ties together along with the music.
