Related to my last post regarding the journal filled with miscellaneous haunt concepts from 1996 this post brings us forward to 2011 and my attempt at organization.
Obsessive doodling is still one of my traits but now I attempt to organize the mayhem into something constructive.
When I come up with a concept I feel is worth pursing I create a folder for the project.
The act of labeling a manila folder with the project name and stuffing it full of concept sketches, design information, templates, photos, etc. and keeping all the crap in one place is somewhat handy.
The folder concept started last year when I built “Buster Gravesley” for the Hauntforum 2010 $20 Prop Challenge because a simple manila folder became the place where everything related to the project was stored.
Currently I have about ten projects that I would like to tackle in 2011. The “Troll” folder is filling up fast with technical information, templates, concept sketches and a log of dates and hours worked on the project.
Here are a few other projects in cue:
Son of Buster: This project excites me greatly because it’s an animated sequel to “Buster Gravesley”.
The concept work is done, the technical configuration is complete and I hope to start work on S.O.B. later this week.
