Here’s the first fruits of your labor, those of you who graciously and generously have supported Hubris on Patreon.
When I was in college, I went to a local cartoonist (Mr. Scott Stantis) and asked for advice. He was generous with his time and attention, and I asked how to repay him. He said, “Pass it on.” And so when a young man who wants to become an animator came asking for advice, I told him what I could about how things work with ad agencies and the kind of people I know who hire animators. He’s created a couple of Hubris animations so far, and this is the latest. Could you help him out, too? Take a look at the animation. Comment about what you like and don’t like. Be kind, but explain what you’re seeing or not seeing. I reckon you’ll be seeing a lot more of Eddie’s work.
Sooner or later, everything’s going to be a thing. Here’s a thing that didn’t used to be a thing.
It does lead to some questions, though. 1) That’s saltwater. How did you avoid the whole thing rusting out before the filming was done?
2) How did you keep the locals from beating the living hell out of the rider and the film crew for being noisy and horrific?
3) We know he must have ditched the bike at least once during filming. What did it take to retrieve that thing and get it running again?
4) How did the locals convince the emergency room doctor that their friend had, in fact, been hit by a motorcycle out at sea?
Thanks, KNO3, for sending the link to the video!
