Hello, this is amalloc of SamBakZa. ... again. (^^);;

Currently I'm working on first fight scene. I always wanted to make something like battle scene, so I'm really happy to making these. I'm using Jacky chan's movies which I always loved as reference, it looks so great with perfect and direct actions.

Also, Sogong has restarted artwork.

Sogong's artworks comming out really nicely, and storyboard looks really satisfying too. It's been a best moment for me as creator. I put myself under a lot of stress when I work on outsourcing job because I always working really slow.

But, as I expected, One thing I'm worried about is that these taking more time than I expected. Currently about 50% done on storyboard, so there must be some delay. I'll try to make a report of progress at every early months.

Always thank you for your support.

good news & bad news

Hello, backers and all SamBakZa fans,

Sorry for long absence. This is amalloc of SamBakZa.
There was a major change happened to us in last 2 months.
There is a place called Myung-dong and Nam-san Seoul. It is nice place that many tourists come and visit. And we got a workshop/gallery/store nearby! Seoul city made a artist support program and we were the first team selected.



amalloc, Sogong, Song songhwa will display our arts, sell them, meet fans and work in there for 2 years. If you got a chance to visit Seoul, please drop by. You might see me making "There she is!! another step" if you visit in autumn. Just come inside our store and say like this;

"I am a big fan of SamBakZa."
It was a great opportunity for us so we had to temporary stop "There she is!!" project and prepared SamBakZa Cartoon Workshop for 2 months. Workshop is almost ready and will be opened in this July.

But because of this, "There she is!! another step" was had to be postponed about 2 months. Making storyboard and artwork should be finished and start working on main production according to the plan, but currently we did about 10% of storyboard and 30% of artwork.

Time is running shorter but that doesn't mean we should postpone the plan. We will try to finish DVD in this year. Unless if we feel that could harm the quality of the product.


Animation test by amalloc

In the new workshop I will finish the storyboard and artwork in august and start main production in September. I was thinking of try other animation tool instead of flash, (I was testing clip sutdio paint and opentoonz.) but I'll try to save some time so gonna use flash as main animating tool since I use it a lot.

I'm posting news on Indiegogo Update page, official facebook page, if there is anything important happens. Thank you so much for your patience and support.

Hello backers and all "There She Is!!" fans,

It's May. Time flies so fast.
I have proceeded to create thumbnail and storyline of  "There She Is!! another step" in last month. I started storyboard a few days ago.  I have nothing to show you, yet. It will be much more later.
On the other hand I am drawing image for the Digital Thank you card - one of the perks - in my spare time.
I was going to attach a still image on the digital card at first, but now it is animated.

Indiegogo backers will be able to see it soon.

Lots of fans who didn't know the Indiegogo campaign have sent me emails they want to join this project.
I will take pre-order before the DVD is finished. You will be able to buy the DVD basic pack + receiving all digital perks + end credits name. So, please keep watching on SamBakZa's facebook or after this September.

Always thank you for your support.

Thanks to everyone!
