There’s a lot going on this month, as we are extremely active with three CSU Interns, Johnnie Wilson, Travis Souza, and Keneisha Perry working this Summer, as well as director Terry Hancock and writer Rosalyn Hunter. Monty King has joined the team for sound design and foley sound, and is currently working on setting up workflow.

This is a perk for $20+ patron on Patreon ( http:/patreon.com/lunatics , but you can also subscribe to just the Newsletter for $3/month on our website ( http://lunatics.tv ). Proceeds contribute to the costs of production and paying the artists.

That is good news.
 
Wonderful news from +The Planetary Society's solar sail program.
After a moment of radio silence, the Planetary Society’s test mission is back on track.

They're about halfway to their goal. Support free-culture animation!
 
I had the pleasure of spending a little time with +Jehan Pagès and +Aryeom Han at LGM2014, as well as working with them on the Libre Calendar project.  Here they are looking for a donation to help with their open-movie project.  Consider donating, even just a little bit (every little bit helps - $1, $5, whatever you have around) to help!

Skip a fancy coffee, help an open movie! :D

Yeah, that last 15 minutes changes everything, doesn't it?
I once knew a young woman who was in high school and shall remain nameless. One day I picked her up at school to drive her home, and asked how she was doing. “Depressed, actually,” she said. “Why, did something go wrong at school?” “Kinda,” she replied. “The social studies teacher was out today.” “That’s…

It's been awhile since I've posted anything here about +Lunatics! (Animated Series), but we're still very active.

We're attempting to raising funds on Patreon now, on a per-episode basis. Work is progressing nicely this Summer, and I have no doubt we'll be releasing episodes this year, but we certainly could use more backing!

'Lunatics!' is a story about the first permanent settlers on the Moon, told with animation created with free software, to be released straight to the web under a free license.

We're focused on the characters and the fanatical traits they need, both to accept this life and to see it through. We're also sticking to very well established science and technology to make the story as plausible as it can be.

The idea is also to do this sustainably, using business models that have been tried for free culture works in the past, and see if we can scale it up to a proper animated series.

Relative to the Earth, they mean.
 
So far from home, the little spacecraft that could stopped getting any further, briefly. Could it be aliens? The answer is a quick read away.

Less than 3 days left to support the "Ze Marmot" open movie project!
They are at 84% of their target funding, leaving about $1500 to go.
I just put in my pledge.

Story
Tagline
Free Software Magazine columnist and fledgling filmmaker
Introduction
I've been interested in space and technology from childhood and in art, writing, computer programming, movies, electronics, and animation for almost as long. 

I've worked as an astronomer, a software maintainer, tech support (never again!), and as a writer. I'm moving into film making (not entirely new -- I was a film student at one time) with a video project called "Lunatics".

Bragging rights
Wrote a book called "Achieving Impossible Things" about free software and free culture. Write a (semi-)regular column for Free Software Magazine. Married for 20+ years, 3 children, 2 cats.
