As you all know, we had an announcement of the project's closure not long ago due to the absence of animators and supervisors. Then again, life happens, and many of us are unable to contribute towards an ambitious project such as this one, simply because many of us strive to maintain a balance between life and education/work already. But a work of art is still a grand creation, and to go back after all that effort betrays our very essence of pride and vision -- it would be a sin to abandon all our previous hard work.
Many of us share this sentiment, and hence many of you messaged us to keep the project open. A realization dawned then, that the project halted only due to lack of supervision -- Aicent is unable to secure time, AkaTsukiSakuya and Megan-Uosiu unavailable at the time, and I'm still busy with my personal animation project -- but the flare of fan-power is still strong, and there are a lot of folks willing to invest some time and passion to bring this project to fruition.
So indeed: The project is still alive! It's open now, so until the supervisors return the power is now handed to the fans; take whatever direction you'd like with it, and show what you envision. Interact with your fellow peers and discuss on the possible ideas. The only exception, though, is that the lack of supervision would mean that we're only regressing a few steps back. Instead on focusing on the whole book, we'll only be focusing on short Motion Videos, either based on specific scenarios or entirely aesthetic choice. Once we accomplish that, we can move on for the bigger prize. I will still be round in case anyone needs help, though, if not supervise things through.
So fire up your passion and take pride in your youth, 'coz the project has just begun! Unleash your abilities as a dreamer, because we wait for no tide. When artists envision something there is no satisfaction until it's a reality. Let's turn that yellow spot into the sun!
