Sometimes I think the time I’m spending on this film is a direct rebellious response to the fast, go, go, go of commercial and television work.
I deliberately don’t take money from outside producers or kickstarters so I don’t have that deadline looming over me. It’s more about the journey than the destination. It’s not my “Thief and the Cobbler” ( I can’t come near that level of animation quality) but I’m loving it, and I will probably be sad when it’s finished.
It’s hard to describe the internal feeling when something you are working on resonates with you in such a way.
But there are bills to pay. Roadside pit stops along the journey to keep the machine fueled.
