Dead Ideas









Over the years I've had a lot of ideas that have died. Be it for lack of interest, manpower, money or all of the above. Most of you have probably experienced the same thing. The strange thing is, I keep trying. You'd think I would catch on after a while but I haven't. And from what I've seen on other blogs and websites, neither have most of you and I think thats cool. Just because someone on a review board decided they didn't think your idea fit the structure of their programming doesn't mean that it isn't good. Of course, some are quite bad and deserve to be passed over, (some of those were probably mine). But it does make you wonder; what unpolished gem is sitting in a stack waiting to be discovered?
These are just some of the "dead ideas" that sit in my stack at home, (and had images readily available).

A long time





I have learned that to get a project off the ground takes a lot of work, (usually for free) and takes even more time. This is a drawing I did well over a year ago and the project is still out there in limbo. The project itself has got a lot of praise but that hasn't seemed to help and there are a lot of "big" names behind it but until it gets the financial backing it sits. I never realized or appreciated the amount of work behind the scenes it takes to get a project green-lit be it t.v., feature or short film. My hat off to all those that have done it.
