Nostrodumbass - remake!
I decided to redo my project In the Future with Nostrodumbass from 8 years ago because, while the voice by Michael Keamy was awesome, it was done in standard definition and I think I can do much better with the animation now.
He is now little less influenced by Korla Pandit and a little more influenced by Jafar from Aladdin. As you can see from the old model (below), he originally didn't even have legs. I also fought tooth and nail with the rigging and think with the character object autorig I used for Charles Billingsworth in Dramatic Readings I can get a much more nuanced performance.
My plan, now that he is ready for animation, is to look over the old script and re-edit the dialog into something tighter and hopefully funnier. The original won a small prize at a Toronto film festival in 2010 and I might try and get this new version shown around as something new. Like many of my projects, the original wasn't seem by too many people to begin with.
