Want to Get Our HD downloads for a Year?

Hey this is Tony Ross for tonyteach.com, and first and foremost I want to thank everyone for helping support our project Anatomy of a 30second short, aka Beaver Cola. We’ve been getting a lot of good feedback, and we do appreciate it.

We only have a few days left on the campaign, and currently we are just shy of making $300 towards our initial goal of $1000.
That being said, we have decided to add a $5 perk. Now don’t panic, anyone who has pledged $5 or above will automatically get this perk.

So what’s the perk?

Well we’ve been working on a membership level at tonyteach.com

At tonyteach, we show all of our FREE tutorials at a low resolution of 640×360, but we also give you the option of downloading the 1280×720 HD version for as low as $1.

Our new membership level will allow users to download the HD versions of our FREE tutorials for just $2.95 per month. We try and release at least 6 tutorials per month, so that’s about a 50% savings.

Now, back to the perk

If you donate just $5 or above, we will give you tonyteach’s HD membership access for a full year! Now the regular $2.95 per month rounds out to about $35 – so at $5 for a year?? That’s over an 80% discount!!

We are limiting this perk to the first 150 people that sign up for it, as that will give us enough funds to meet our $1000 goal

Tonyteach’s Toon Boom DVD

Anatomy of a 30 Second Short DVDUPDATE: Busy week here in Tonyteach world, with lots of exciting things lining up, but we can’t spill the beans just yet. : )

We are working away on setting up the Toon Boom Animate DVD: Anatomy of a 30-second Short – Animation from Thought to Finish Pre-orders on Indie GoGo. The date to place your pre-orders has been moved to this Friday, February 17th.

To create a successful story, you should be able to explain it in a single sentence. Example: Geeky teenager gets bitten by radioactive spider, and gains super hero powers.

With this in mind, we are announcing today the title and summary of our upcoming Toon Boom Animate DVD: Anatomy of a 30-second Short – Animation from Thought to Finish…

Beaver Cola:
A soda company markets its product based on the fact that the primary ingredient in their beverage comes from the business end of a beaver.

By the way, the Beaver Cola company is a parody, but the ingredient “castoreum” is very real.

The DVD will show everything from the initial pitch, creating the piece in Toon Boom Animate, to the final 30 second short. We will be taking pre-orders via raising funds on Indie GoGo starting February 17. Our goal is to raise at least $1000, and the rewards will include being able to pre-purchase the entire DVD as a download for just $1! (limited to first 600 backers). The DVD will release March 30, 2012.

Toon Boom Animate: Forward Walk Cycle [PREMIUM TUTORIAL]

A walk cycle? With no legs??

In this premium Toon Boom Animate tutorial, we create a forward walk-cycle (no legs involved).

This tutorial is based on anime and old-school limited animation, like Scooby Doo. Whenever you would see a character walking toward the camera, they would only be shown from the waist up. This was used as an option, when time and budget were tight, as it takes longer to create a convincing forward walk cycle when the legs are visible.

This Premium tutorial is 26 min long, and normally priced at $2.95, but for a limited time, you can get this for just $1.

All the best-
