Overhaul Undergone

It took 3 weeks but BiteyCastle survived its enhancement surgery and is once again fully functional. The changes were entirely under the hood so there’ll be very little, if any noticeable difference for visitors. The main problem was outdated system components and redundant software so there was an increasing number of errors and only a matter of time before it died like a rockstar choking on its own vomit.

Now then, we’re getting ready for the Fifth of September when the BiteyCastle Academy FX Course opens its doors. Thanks to the success of the Kickstarter campaign, the FX course will be off to an explosive start with 110 members. They’re the quick-fingered folk who made that $39 pledge to be first to get their spoons into the golden nectar of FX knowledge sweetness.

If you missed out on pledging for the BCA FX course reward, don’t worry. Space is not limited. The course officially begins in September and anyone can subscribe, but you should know: the course assumes some knowledge of basic animation concepts. You may feel a little left behind if you’ve never picked up a pencil or tried to animate.

Brace yourself! September 5th is the day we’re aiming for.

  1. Nice 😀 But sadly, I didn’t donate that much 🙁

  2. I’m going to be out of the country until the 16th… am I going to miss everything in the classes from Sept 5th till then or i assume there’s a “replay” option

    • yeah man don’t worry about that, the backdated content will remain available for the duration of the 8 week course. I’ll be zipping up an archive of the entire 8 weeks for members to keep, print, use later.

  3. Hey this is great…and an honor…I really enjoy your work…did not know about the game though, definitely would have contribute to the cause…I do want to take the FX Course. I would like to know will you critique the work that we come up with, I have a degree in animation…that was one of my issues that some of the teachers weren’t really knowledgeable…or did not help enough in what should be fixed…

  4. Great that the sites up, though I can’t seem to register for this site still o.O Is there any maintenance going on that still or there some other way? Did the pledge for the FX courses.

    • Hey, sorry for the confusion, but the course will open on 5th December and I’ll be pre-registering the Kickstarter backers myself, so you don’t need to worry about that. You’ll get an email in a few days 🙂

  5. Is the courses only 8 weeks or will there be more after that?

    • Yep the course is ongoing. There’ll be a new article with exercises and examples every week, plus a forum for members to mingle with fellow subscribers and share, learn and help one another.
