Still alive and kicking

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 2, 2012, 5:46 AM

...or rather dancing.

I'm getting faster. Much faster. I know understand part of adding texture and punctuating rhythm to my movies also means adding more variety to my life. Years ago when I was in better shape I made Haloid in just over 2 months. Dead Fantasy 2 was made in about 4 months. These days as I get older and gain more skill. Somehow I seem to be getting slower. And part of it is re igniting my passion for things.

My movies have always been very rhythmic. And exercising rhythm in my life adds haste to my process. In an odd way, much like dancing adding texture and beats to my work means being ok with going slower. By learning how to be faster.

Im an open minded individual, Even though I don't believe in heaven, god, or an after life, I do hope that we relive the time line and do our lives over again after we die. Only small tweaks here and there. Hopefully one of the time lines, I get to meat you. Your words are helping me out of a hole I dug myself into. Thanks. You were better than Jesus.

Looking at his page and seeing his last journal made me start sobbing yet again. I hope his account doesnt get taken down just because he can't be active on it anymore....

There's that wasted name account here in deviantart for 11 years and still around. I doubt his would be as he have done inspirational work and artist figure. He would be one of the many who will be remembered as an inspiration artist here in dA and one who will be my hero and my inspiration for my animation career. Thanks to Mr. Oum.

I find it ironic that this is the title of his last journal, and that the one before it was titled "The Other Side".  At the same time, I find it kind of uplifting.

At the point I had writing that message he was still well. Yes, i had herd the news. He passed just under a year later after I wrote. I never herd from him. Miss his wonderful personality and amazing skills.  One day I do hope someone will lovingly continue his work. What a sweet dedication that would be.

Dead fantasy, sorry, but it's never going to be completed. But RWBY's currently on season 4 so...I guess it's time for you to start binge watching.

This is awesome. With time, comes experience and Mr.Oum, you have truly grown immensly, ever since the first episode of Dead Fantasy, heck even Haloid. With this comes patience and we shall wait for your upcoming episodes. It will be most surely worth the wait after all. Have a blessed day!

Well, I love your vids and compare them to other great fan works (you're work superficially is pro, but in many ways more creative precisely because you are a fan), such as the WIP for a fan translation of Star Ocean: Blue Sphere by lokai20 on YouTube.

You provide a great service to fans that we all appreciate. TYVM!

One of these days you may wind up getting the good call from management--SQ-EX that doesn't contain a cease & dissist order. ;)

I suspect a lot of fans want to see the next level of interaction. Thanks for keeping FF alive in the post linear RPG era. :D Appreciation is pleasantly given. :)

Age equals experience, speed does not always mean a better product (of this I know since media is my business) I've always thought that when doing something patience is more rewarding in theist end than going over it too quickly.

I love your work so keep on it, since you've a devoted appraiseur in me.
