A reflective week: Double Awards for Tales of Zale Episode 2 on Newgrounds, some very kind words from Director Sif Perlt Savery, more artwork from last week's Livestream + more!
After last month's busy animation schedule (as well as the busy few months before that), this past week has been the quietest it's been in a very long time at JabunAudio! While that means not much audio work has been going on (sad times), it has given me some time to regroup and start planning for new projects which is a plus. Don't worry though, there's still a fair amount of stuff to share this weeks so let's get to it!
Firstly this week, after all the hard work by our wonderful production team, Tales of Zale Episode 2 was awarded not only daily 3rd place, but also weekly 3rd place on Newgrounds! Thanks so much to everyone for their feedback and praise not only on Episode 2 but also all the three Minisodes and Episode 1 as well. If you've yet to watch them head over to Hikarian Animations on YouTube and check them out, and be sure to check out the credits to see everyone who's involved, as we all put our all into each and every animation. Hope you enjoy them!
Next on the list this week, now that Tales of Zale Month is over, things are winding down for the project for the moment (certainly on my end), and our excellent director Sif who runs Hikarian Animations put out this really nice heartfelt thanks video to raise awareness of the team behind the animation and thank everyone who was involved, both in the creation, live streams and for watching. It's a really nice insight into how the animation came together in terms of everyone who was involved and I was really chuffed to hear Sif's kind words about my work too. Thanks so much Sif! It was such a pleasure to work with you again and I can't wait to be sculpting the Tales of Zale soundscape again soon.
Next we have some more glorious art fromlast Friday's final Livestream of Tales of Zale Month! From Zachary, we have a portrait of our ready-for-the-ring host, Sif "The Rock" Savery (best to watch the Livestream for context on this), and from Victor we have an immense gif of Sif, Nathan and himself (the staple ToZ Month Livestream trio) groovin' in their sweet ride! I believe there is one more picture from the Livestream left to be shared so I hope to share that soon, but be sure to check out last week's post for more ToZ Livestream art gold! These guys are brilliant!
Lastly to report, we have 2 more YouTube videos this week from the Better Than The Book - "Two Years On" and Charlotte's Web Orchestral Commission streams. This week from Better Than The Book, it's the heartfelt "The Bigger Picture", and from Charlotte's Web, we have "A Veritable Smorgasbord Part 1". Hope you enjoy them and next week will actually be the last week for both of these streams so I'm not sure what'll happen next. Be sure to stay tuned to the relevant YouTube Channels to keep in the loop.
And that about wraps things up for this week! I'm not sure what's happening next week as it stands but I'm itching to make some more music so hopefully I'll at least get something started in that department. I'm sure there'll be more to report next week anyhow (there always is!), so until next time, I hope you all have good weeks and thanks as always for stopping by and supporting JabunAudio. Take care!
