Powers Cosmic
What started as an exercise to teach myself basic animation has continued into an ongoing web series. Some of the early episodes have pretty crappy audio but we've mostly overcome those kinds of problems now. The title link goes to the latest episode (09) -- which has a full 'catch up' at the start -- all of the other episodes can be found here.

The series is intended to be conversation based and focuses on two main characters: Elroy and Furious. Episode 09 features the introduction of some 'guest star' characters who will participate in the next few episodes.

The writing is intended to be dry, nerdy and references nerdy things. The saddest part of the whole thing is that there are episodes which contain almost verbatim conversations that I've had with real life friends.

It wasn't cleared with me or anything, but I approve. I like the animation and it is pretty funny in places! Memail me the royalty check.

Pretty cool. What did you use for the animation?

Thanks COBRA! The character animation and sets are done in After Effects. Anything 3D (like the ship) was rendered in Carrara (I'm not much chop at 3D, but Carrara lets me make basic stuff pretty easily).

Everything else is done in Illustrator and edited in Final Cut Pro.

Thanks tvjoshi - much appreciated.

Furious - sorry, I didn't mean to ignore your comment, I actually thought the other guy involved in this project had signed up for an account... he doesn't see any cash either I'm afraid! :)
