Good news! I went and landed a day job recently.

Bad news! A lot of my time is not my own anymore.

Good news! I have money coming in which means I can upgrade a lot of the tools I use for this project.

Bad news! I'm still sorting out time management.

Good news, I'm getting better at time management because I'm typing up this post. Expect the full return of Red Panda Studios on a weekly to every two week schedule very shortly.

I don't have a iPhone so I can't Vine. But Instagram has a video feature that I'm dabbling with lately. I'm aiming to get better at gonzo futurephone video techniques. I'll post my progress here and let you be the judge.

This is my first InstaVid. It was taken at Blue Pants Brewery.

Roughly one year later, here it is. The speech that launched thousands of Sandman, Neverwhere, Anansi Boys, Stardust, and Coraline lovers dreams. If you're a +Neil Gaiman  fan, you saw this and sat in awe and possibly anger.

"How dare he make the act of creating art sound so damn easy!' you think.

'It can't be as simple as all that, right?

Simple or not, this speech pops back into my head when I realize I'm feeling down and that I'm not writing as much as I should. Then I remember that it applies to all my creative endeavors. Including this video project.

+Zen Pencils  knew it was easy. He released his comic version of the most poignant part of the speech maybe month after it hit the internets.

It took me a year to gather up the courage to create this mashup.

Why'd it take so long? I let life get in the way. I also wanted to add so much more to the video. Then I finally realized that I wanted to add too much. I've got to stop being precious with these pieces. Just make the videos to the best of my ability, publish it, then move on to the next one.

Better late than never, right? Here it is. The comic to speech mashup turned into a sort of motion comic for all to see.

This and all videos I've made before where done with Camtasia Studios. Because I'm too damn poor to buy the much beloved Adobe After Effects.

Well this took long enough to release, didn't it?

As I stated in the bump the idea for this came from spying the Soft Dalek comic. To my knowledge no one has actually sang "Soft Dalek" out loud and put it on the internet. After I went through a neurotic fit trying to decide between two versions of my vocals, I can guess why.

It took me a few days to hate it less enough to post to YouTube. 

I had to repeat over and over, 'This is for the fun reel. This is for the fun reel.'

My favorite part is the Dalek blast animation. It came out better than I hoped. Not bad for a guy who hasn't had formal animation classes.

Well, not horrible anyway.

Introduction number two for those of you counting. 

Certain parties were not thrilled with my use of Tsutchie's "Raw Material" from Samurai Champloo ( Welcome to Red Panda Studios ). So I changed it.
