Kaboing is NOT Kaput!
I was just made aware today of a news post on a major animation site that joyfully announced the demise of Kaboing TV. ( along with some negative comments about myself and the site).
Well, you are not going to get rid of me that easily ( or Kaboing).
I mentioned on my blog that we were in a grey area. Not kaput!
We are not giving up. Sometimes it takes some major kicking when I’m down to get me back up fighting again. ( Quiet Samurai, the fight must not come from a place of anger).
We have some new approaches planned, and maybe the adjustment of lower expectations at the start will help us.
I’m not working or making entertainment for the industry or the people who read that other site that like to dwell on negativity. I’m making it for the animation fan. The ones who appreciate the medium and don’t see a need for knocking someone else down who is merely making a contribution. Anyone who makes animation, to me, deserves my respect. It’s a difficult and time consuming medium. I’m interested in approaches to improve the craft, but also to support distribution and showcasing that side steps the gate keepers of the major conglomerates. But I’m not going to keep talking about it. It needs to be seen.
As Gandhi said: ” First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.”
We will keep going. I have many projects going on. It’s never fun to trip and fall in public. But that is what I signed on for. Keep the punches coming. I can take it. You can like my work or not. But I’ll keep on making it, and supporting others who want to make it.
