Happy New Year! We say, bring on 2017! We’re so psyched to roll out all this new stuff to you guys. Thanks for coming along with us on our 12 Days of Awesome as we debuted our awesome new Long Winter membership. On our final day, Day 12, let’s take a moment to recap some of the SWEET, super unique, animator-friendly perks of our club:
We gave you a sneak peek of some of the brand-new, super appealing kids we’re debuting this month.
We showed you our huge library of beautiful, hilarious, appealing characters!
Instead of sitting down and working that same scene with that same characters, you can grab any character from our ever growing library and bang out something completely fresh and unique. Whether you want to hammer out a bunch of tests or use a fresh character for every shot in your reel, you now have access to more characters than you can even animate!
We introduced you to Reno, one of our new, members-only, exclusive characters.
With Eric pumping out killer concept every single day, we can’t help but get busy building these guys. I gotta say, it’s a dream to be able to work with such talent and creativity. And over the next year, we’ll be in full production building the best characters we can with the most variety, creativity and enthusiasm we can muster up!
We showed you Mack, our new, super fierce (and cute!) bulldog, and also Dale, our new crocodile.
We introduced you to Paul, one of our new members-only exclusive characters.
And we walked you through the nuts and bolts of how membership works, in quick videos by our CEO, Andrew Conroy.
We can’t wait to bring you more and more of our very best characters in 2017. There will be new ones every month! Thanks for coming along with us and for being passionate animators who want to keep growing and improving. We’re right there with you and fighting for you!
