The Story Comes Together + Sponsors.A fantastic update! Thanks to the support I received through The Indie GoGo campaign, I've been able to dedicate two weeks over the last month to editing, rearranging, polishing and fleshing out the story of The Firelight Isle. I'm really happy with how it has come together, there have been several major shifts in emphasis and a restructuring, and I'm looking forward to the next stage of development which will be thumbnailing/storyboarding. This stage will most likely include its own story edits, and I'll be using it as a tool to decide which designs to focus on.
This is only the first step in the work that the campaign money will cover, but it's perhaps the most important! The funds that were so generously donated through the Indie Gogo campaign have been set aside to use as a basic wage for any day on which I work on the project.
So far, I've spent a few days on research, a few days on admin relating to the campaign, and two weeks on writing. Some of the campaign money has inevitably had to go back into the time it took to produce the trailer and run the campaign whilst it was active, but the majority of the funds are ready and waiting for the bulk of the work, which will be thumbnailing, design and visual reseach.
I can also announce a new section of the site for the following sponsors!
