It's been about a month since I've been here... I decided to take a break for a while and try out more things.
I've got big news: I'm going on a three month European internship. Because I finished my film school course with distinction and was recommended by my coordinator, they've now put me in the Leonardo Da Vinci program, that takes 200 students in Portugal every year to European countries. So that promises to be fun...
I haven't heard where I'm going to be stationed, but I'm sure that by the end of next week I should know.
In the meantime, I've finally started creating superhero universes. One is based off a play from a friend and she sold me the rights of the characters. The other is based on a dance school I'm collaborating with.
While the first one is more typical in the superhero universe, the two main characters, Selena, a spirit that has changed bodies throughout time, is now a private detective. The other character, The Night Dame, is a revolted teenager that hates the world around her, but feels that she must help others. She joins Selena and together they protect the city from various villains.
The dance school concept is a little more different than usual. While the two directors of the school are themselves teachers of Salsa, they had already a school by the name of LatinClub and that's where the LatinDolls started.
In this universe, the two directors are the mature superheroes that train the LatinDolls and together they protect the city.
It's still something in it's early stages, but I hope I'll find someone that can actually draw these concepts.
Finally, it's one week 'till IberanimeLX 2012. This year my association is going to have a booth and this year we're either going big or going home. We've got 350 promo envelopes to distribute throughout the whole weekend.
We got promos for (Damn) This Desert Air, Escaping The Ordinary compilation, an artfilm called "Blanca" and a few things I can't really comment on yet!
Anyway, see you soon!!!
