Howdy Newground partners. Welcome. Tomorrow is Clock Day and what a fantastic Clock Day it will be.
However I must confess, that due to the old REAL LIFE shit (This year, I've travelled away from my production comp for a few days), my new short wont be ready for Clockday itself. HOWEVER, I can promise that it WILL be finished, and will be released before next Wednesday! It's a new episode of "Koala and Golden", my 2004 mini-series, and marks the return of "Gay teddy" Koala. Check out the screenshot below!
I'll be around on Clockday itself though! I've lent my voice to several of DWARFINATOR's top productions, and they be rather chucklin' inducing yes. So keep an eye out for those.
Peace out, and happy clockday to you all <3
I've had to cancel the not so secret teaser trailer I had planned for this Clockday, due to a hefty amount of work in real life... In addition, I am heading out on holiday the day before Clockday, so I'm really sorry, no Clock Crew movie from me this year.
However, I would like to announce two things I was going to make clear in the trailer I had planned. Bananabeard III will be CGI, like my movie "The Mascot" over on my main account mrSimon. Well, character animation at least, definatly. I'm much more confident in Maya than I am in Flash now. I'm not so sure about background art though, that might be Photoshop rather than Maya. Yet to do experiments.
The big announcement though is that Bananabeard III will be coming on the 10th Clock Day, Clock Day 2011. If it doesn't happen by then, then thats it, period, I just wont do it.
So its Clockday 2011 or never. Follow me on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/mrsimon for any possible news. I hope to do character and animation tests over the next few months, before diving into background artwork. I'm going to devote myself fully to this project for the next few years once I've gotten my current point and click game out the way..
Hope to see you in 2011.

KoalaClock joined clockcrew.cc shortly after he gained access to the internet in Summer 2002. After primarily a few months of forum lurkage and posting, he released several movies including Bananabeard and The Portal, which recieved a Daily Feature and Weekly Second back in summer 2003.
After this, he started work on a sequel to Bananabeard simply titled Bananabeard II, and only produced a handful of shorts over the next two years, such as CCN: The Dodger Epidemic, Smelly Cat and The Fall which recieved a daily award on Clockday 2004.
During 2004, Koala also hosted and maintained Clockcrew.co.uk (CCUK), which saw a number of new clocks join the crew.
I am now a full-time computer animator for Traveler's Tales smaller division. Although I do not activly create Clock Crew movies anymore, I do occasionally post short animations that do not boast any particular artistic merit, including very occasional Clock Crew movies.
Be sure to check out my primary account, since I posted my higher quality clock animations such as "The Portal" and "Bananabeard" under this alias.
