It will involve integration of video sequences and an animated 3d character.
Hoping to get some help and feedback from anyone that are interested in collabing on this sort of thing now or in the future.
Already 3 episodes posted in the Video Journal

Questions you may be asking>
Looks cool, but have you ever done a pro level VFX sequence like this before?
um, no....but I figure it's like anything else I've tried that I never did before. I have some basics ( softdistortion.com / shirowproject.com ) , and I'll learn what I need to know on the way, and probably some others will also pitch in their expertise and skills. It's the experience of something new and working with others that is of value to me.
Why are you putting it in a live Journal?
It's a way to let others who have an interest see the nitty gritty details of this project from concept to delivery...You can follow the success and challenges of it all from the perspective of someone who (maybe like you) has never done this type of thing before.
Also, I personally sometimes feel a bit of a let down when I see something like this get released without any real details or an explanation missing details that I would like explained.
