Sister studio theFictory has some big news today and a special treat for animation and Atomic Robo fans… a brand new trailer for the upcoming film. But they need your help to get the film FINISHED! (click on the poster!)
Joseph called it level up. Housecleaning may be another way to put it. Either way, The Fictory got a facelift over the weekend. You can easily see our IPs including comics and games right on the right-hand side! You can also go straight to the new nxtbook enabled Stabb Gunner comic. We encourage you to check it out as we anticipate the acceptance of Pinball Shuffle to the App Store!
We often get questions like this: Where do the fictory and Postage, Inc. fit together?
The basic answer is this, thefictory has always been the property and passion of Postage Principal, Joseph Krzemienski. As we worked more and more together, Postage sort of became thefictory’s father, offering a place and support in financial and other encouraging ways. As we move into the future, thefictory is starting to become an imprint for properties we are working on in-house rather than our client’s properties in which we still really enjoy participating.
Weekend sessions have resumed for Postage sister-studio, “thefictory” in their creation of a short film, “Atomic Robo – Last Stop” which is an adaptation or even, an exclusive episode of the popular Red 5 comic series.
A quick stroll online would illuminate the comic’s uber-fandom, something creaters Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener don’t take for granted. In fact, they carefully stoke and fuel the fires on their blog which contains everything Robo.
As far as thefictory is concerned, this is an ideal project to sink their teeth into for several reasons including it’s independent popularity but also the ability for a short film to increase it’s readership/viewership. Many talented friends of Postage/thefictory have been working tirelessly to keyframe, tween, color, animate and anything else you can imagine would go into an animated short film. It’s really amazing to see the animation staff here go into action and you can visualize a dotted line going from one computer to a light table into a pencil and back to another computer… a virtual, etheral assembly line. Daily video updates reveal that the work has a final destination and a purpose.
As with previous projects, Joseph and thefictory haven’t exactly set a finish date yet. When it is done it’s done. A comfortable change from commercial production work… it really allows them to finesse the project and bring it to it’s full potential.
