Joining Network Frederator

11/13/13 by Gerkinman

Hey guys, it sure has been a long time since my last post hasn't it? Lots has been going on so please forgive me.

So whats news, well I guess the first call of order would be whats in the updates name. I was approached by Channel Frederator to become part of their network, and I decided that might not be a bad idea. All it really means is that they will be helping to promote my animations from time to time, but that alone is a big thing for me since getting a following has been something I have struggled with since the mid 2000's (oh how I miss the glory days sometimes).

So what does that mean for Newgrounds? Well, ill still be releasing my stuff here, and I do have to thank Tom for promoting my last major short "The Client Is Always Right". I had been acting like a total knob up until that point but he still chose to feature it which I am very much appreciative of. Ill behave myself from now on. But yes, I will still be releasing my work here on Newgrounds regardless of the partnership, although I might wait a month between the Youtube releases and the releases here.

As far as what I have on the way, I have a couple of projects, Im currently animating a sequel to my 2004 high school drama piece Sp00nage (called Sp00nage 2 creatively). Its coming along well and I hope to have out by the end of the year. Im also working on a 7 episode series which was originally picked up by Machinima but then dropped for reasons I was never told. The series (called Shooty and the Catfish) is an observational comedy largely based on the mentality of gamers I see online fused with an Adventure Time sense of whimsy. When it will be coming out is too far away to tell.

That reminds me, im rocking 2 youtube channels now. My original channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Gerkinman is now going to be used exclusively for gaming content. MEANWHILE all my animation, animation news and short films will be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/VisitorsFromDreams. I know it seems kind of a dick move to promote your Youtube channel on this site, as Tom has pointed out, but things like update videos and behind the scenes content will only really work on youtube, so if you like that sort of stuff then please, by all means, subscribe if you haven't already.

I think thats about it. Yeah. Im done. Have fun kids! If you have any questions then shoot in the comments section :)
