Anonymous asked: Hi PBC! I'd like you to render "Light my fire" on your next Wednesday animation, if it isn't too much to ask. I love Let it go!!! Thank you in advance!
A couple of things:
1.) I’m not crazy about taking anonymous requests for animations. I’d like to credit people for their ideas and work with them to make something cool. The animations can also be very time consuming, between testing out the idea, doing the calligraphy, figuring out how to film it, assembling the frames, and trying to optimize for tumblr’s awesome 1mb file size limit for GIFs. The animations are some of my favorite things to do and I make time to do one every week. If I’m not doing a favor for a friend or getting to know someone new a tiny bit, I’d rather not give up the chance to do what inspires me that week, you know?
That said, if you have an idea you want to talk about, you can message me under an actual account here or, if this is someone I know who does not tumblr, use twitter or IRC or whatever to tell me your idea!
2.) I’d love to do more with the “Let it Go” fire effect I accidentally stumbled upon, but I don’t want to do the same thing back-to-back. I’ll keep it in mind when I come back to that effect!
