The first Sig and Tessa short is officially underway! The short is titled “The best things in life” and features the talented Allegra Scott showcasing her role as Tessa!
Overall I think it’s a very fun short. It’s about a minute and a half, not a lot of dialog from Sig but Tessa has some fun lines. It’s really fun animating the two of them, I really really hope people will like it as much as I think they will!
Keep an eye out for the duo making their debut next month!
Imagine this: You’re sitting in your animation history class. Your professor says that your classmate who sits two empty seats away from you is going to show his animation. Joy!
Then, projected ten feet tall in glorious HD, is an autobiographical piece about his life problems and his manic pixie dream girl purple skunk girlfriend. Complete with fade to black sex. And masturbation scene.
Imagine that and you will know a fraction of my pain.
oh MY GOD WHO DID I SHOW THIS TO AND WHERE EVEN DID I FIBD IT
What's your process for making a long term series? I know youre doing SotS. Like, do you do your storyboard after your script? Stuff like that
Basically once Story of the Soul went through multiple revamps. Where it’s at right now. It is a bunch of concept art. 10 episodes of scripts, and a bunch of ideas.
The Sig and Tessa series is similar. There are about 10 shorts lined up, all scripted and whatnot. The characters are finalized. There are sketches of the scenery and such of the shorts.
I just mailed Tessa’s voice actress her lines for the first short. Upon receiving them (after retakes and whatnot), the short will storyboarded, the lineart will be made, then colored, then backgrounds painted and then I normally do lip syncing last.
However in the future, the episodes will be storyboarded prior to recording to further help the other actors. Most of my animations simply had me or my friends voicing. So retakes weren’t necessary because I could talk to them and tell them how I wanted a line conveyed.
But now that I’ll be working more closely with voice actors I will need more help to convey my ideas.
I concept a scene. Write a script. Storyboard. Record. Lineart. Color. Background. Lip synch.
Will there be any musical numbers in Story of the Soul?
OOooooo This is a great question. Okay, Story of the Soul and “Sig and Tessa” are two different “Series” per se. But they take place in the same universe. Sig and Tessa is essentially just the two of them on random adventures. Story of the soul dives into the universe and lore of it all.
In Sig and Tessa, one of the shorts has Sig trying to make Tessa’s world a musical, and she hates singing.
One of my “Season finales” of Story of the soul episode wise, I wanted to make a musical. Like not parodies, an actual musical. Sig and Tessa each have their own “number” as does Sig’s sister and even the bad guys (which ill get into later). It also (in my mind) has a cool finale number that has a pretty big bombshell to set up for the next season.
SO! tl;dr. I HOPE and PLAN to have a musical episode in the far future of Story of the Soul.
dude this is bothering me so much and im sure it was you, it was an animation to a song from like a ninja anime and you and a chick were like doing a shuffle kinda dance and it kinda became a meme ? (if it wasnt you Im sorry its just bugging me so much bc I cant find it)
I made something like that awhile ago but I took it down off youtube awhile back when I got out of my anime phase. I know what you’re talking about, but I can’t remember what it was called or do I have any backups
I had like 5 people get callbacks. And I love them all, each one has like different “personality” of Tessa I didn’t even know I wanted. Would it be weird if there were just 5 Tessa’s fighting with Sig? Nah.. I don’t think so..
