Hey everyone! I've decided to reboot an old series of mine from YouTube (back before I knew what Newgrounds was).
Brother and Sister was an accidental series I started in 2007 (I say accidental because I thought it was going to be a one off short at the time, but it ended up having 13 episodes). I actually tried sort of bringing this series back with two shorts on Newgrounds a few years back, but I was trying to write a much longer episode so I kept calling these two "shorts." Anyway, I've since realized that the longer episode is outside of my scope at this point in time, so I've decided to start the series off as a bunch of smaller episodes. I'm rewrapping the two shorts I released on Newgrounds with a new title, theme song, and credits sequence (and I also adjusted some of the animation, aspect ratio, color palette, and sound mixes, so they're in a better form than ever before) as Episodes 1 and 2. But don't worry, I'm not just rehashing old material! I'll be releasing Episode 3 in a couple of days, and eventually I'll be releasing Episode 4 as well, which already has most of the work completed. And both of these are all new.
You can watch Episode 1 here: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/705595

Will there be even more episodes? I sure hope so. I have plenty of scripts, some dialogue recordings, and some assets already made toward future episodes. As long as time permits, I will be making more of these. Freelancing is how I make a living though, and it currently takes up a major portion of my time. So I can't give any dates or anything, but I do hope to be back with more content soon. Ideally the gaps between releases won't be YEARS long!
Check out some of my other work, if you're new. And check out my YouTube channel as well, though I promise to be always posting my animated work to Newgrounds too!
If any of you are from the San Francisco Bay Area in California, I'm going to have a short film of mine (called I Edit Lectures) premiere at the Albany Film Festival on March 25th, so feel free to swing by!
