Dashkin and Music

There’s a good reason I haven’t updated in 2 months. Dashkin has now got a sponsor and I’ve been holding off on making the announcement until contracts are finalised. However, as these things go, we’ve been held up and I won’t be making the official announcement just yet. So rather than stay quiet until I can say stuff, I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to in the meantime.

Cilla Jane

Cilla Jane is an independent singer/songwriter based in Melbourne. She recently contacted me saying that she liked my “littleFoot” movie and asked whether or not I’d be available to do a music video for one of her songs. I listened to the song, liked it and said yep. The album has now been released and I’m due to finish the video at the end of May, so you’ll get to see it soon. I’m using ToonBoom Animate Pro 2 for the entire project.


The game has made a huge amount of progress and we’re ready to release a playable beta to a lucky few of our loyal subscribers. All that remains is for some technical wrinkles to be ironed out and a bit of pre-beta polish. If you’re a cynic, the announcement will come sooner than you think.


The Brackenwood Store is no more! It lasted about 4 years and the costs of running it have always been on the high side. But yesterday I’d had enough and made the cancellation phonecall. Don’t worry, this isn’t the end of Brackenwood merchandise and I’m already working on new ideas. More info in a future update.

  1. Totally stoked about all the upcoming stuff you’ve got in store! The music video looks proper eerie, dunno, maybe I’m wrong; your animation will be flawless as usual, though!

  2. awesomessss! which song is it?
    End of may. that is AWESOME. very excited sir

  3. Heh, I just replaced a Bitey shirt about a week ago that was wearing out. On one hand, I’m glad I got that in under the wire. On the other hand, my order may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back 🙂

    • haha no, it’s thanks to people like you the store was running as long as it was. Hope your new Bitey shirt gives you as many, if not more years than the last.

  4. You should consider financing a project through kickstarter.com someday.
    I have recently gave my support for another artist that wanted to raise money for an ipad application and he did quite well. He received almost twice as much he needed.

    I didn’t known of the existence of the facebook page you shared here though I’m subscribed to Lemony Wee and Bitey… he does not talk much 🙂

  5. A shame to hear about the store. But i guess i am lucky to have a Bitey poster then 😀 . Can’t wait for the game to come out. I have been attempting to countdown to its release since April. And the music video looks incredible, can’t wait to see that as well. Plus what is going on with the games beta (I have liked the facebook page 🙂 ), have people already played it or are you yet to choose people (One keen amateur flash game dev here).

  6. I’m thrilled to hear you will be doing a music video for one of Cilla Janes songs. I am a huge fan of her music! Can’t wait to hear it!

  7. Awesome, congratulations!

  8. I’m really excited to hear you talking about ToonBoom Animate. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up replacing Flash for animations. I’m not an animator, but I’ve been following it for a little while and even though it’s a little expensive, it looks like a very powerful program. How do you like it so far?

  9. Can’t wait for the game Adam!! Also I wanted to say you’re a huge inspiration to me; you’re doing what you love no matter the challenges, and I really admire and respect that. 🙂 Great work!!

  10. this might be the best anime I’ve seen in a long time. your work is good keep up the good work and i cant wait for the game.

  11. Hahahaha. I’m not too bright today. Great post!

  12. il problema non è trasformare i rifiuti in petrolio.il problema è farlo senza spendere più energia di quella che poi verrebbe restituita dal petrolio.ma questa sarebbe una violazione del 2° principio della termodinamica.una cosuccia che di certo non ferma uno come Rossi 🙂
