Is this a flash animation?
No. It’s hand-drawn.
When are you releasing?
Project Origins will not be released early, and it will not be released late. It will be released precisely when it’s meant to. (This is a fancy way of saying I don’t have an intended date right now.)
Where is (Fillintheblank) character?
The characters were chosen for the script based on who makes sense to be in that particular place at that particular time. If a character doesn’t show up or doesn’t have a huge roll, they didn’t fit the scene. Right now, the characters in the animation are: Sonic, Sally, Tails, Amy, Bunnie, Antoine, Rotor, Rosie, and Uncle Chuck.
So do you support the Pre-Genesis Wave, The Reboot, IDW comics or what?!
…Iunno. I like comics, so go buy all of them.
OMG I found an error in the writing/art!!!11!1
I could likely point out more errors than anyone else.
What time period is this?
It’s based on the era before the Freedom Fighters are established. As such, it has more of a ‘Classic Sonic’ feel about it. The designs are inspired by the same era in the comic book reboot from Archie, but I’m not aiming to adhere to any one specific era.
Uh… Is Sega letting you do this?
The short answer is no, I didn’t get permission. This is a fan-created work. I’m aware that it just takes a C and D from Sega to potentially shut it down. I am aiming to keep it NOT FOR PROFIT for that very reason. My goal in all this is to just do something I’ve always wanted to do and pay tribute to my favorite series of all time.
What if I receive a C&D from Sega? There is no way to predict if or when that will happen. If that does happen, I’ll release as much content as I can so people could see what the final product would have been. I would much, MUCH rather complete it, though.
Can I help?!
Sure. Send me your information on the contact page along with a portfolio of your work. You must meet a certain quality standard in your work AND be willing to do work in a timely manner. You must also love Sonic in ALL its incarnations! That means no bashing others because they like one era more. 😐
But bear in mind…I’m not going to refuse help, but please don’t come at this from the angle that you want to make a load of creative decisions and that you just want your name attached without doing any work. Anyone can give ideas but it takes a lot of dedication and know-how to make those ideas a reality.
