The Bliss Stage team is currently called Perpetual Motion studios, and we're still working on the roster and positions are open, especially for voice-acting. We're also using FAnime 2011 to pimp our Bliss Stage project a bit, and we've been trying to run a session in Exhibition Hall 3 for the last 2 nights but nobody has cared. =(
Yes, the trailer is hilariously awful, please overlook that and look at it this way: I'm the character artist and going to be stepping up as the background artist and animator too, most likely. I pointed that I've both started, failed, and released more projects than anyone else on the team, and I'm the one that's going to pick up the pieces when team members begin quitting when they realize they have to actually work on a project and get along ... simultaneously, which includes having to wait for approval before making changes.
What I'm saying is: I'm serious about this, and the project has a lot of potential. I have other sister projects for Ren'Py like Controlled Chaos and Sum of the Parts that have been reinvigorated as well by simply working on the writing portion more while I work on the art portion of Bliss Stage. With the Friendship is Magic fanimation shorts starting production in June, I will be rounding out my capacity as an indie freelancing artist in most respects: H, clean, writer, artist, animator, director, etc.
So, if you're interested in general, click the link, wait a couple months for the demo, and see what happens.
