May Update by Aleks Sakowski

It's been a bit quiet on here lately but that is because I've been super busy. Mukpuddy is well under way on its new TV show "Quimbo's Quest". We are currently in production and have 52, 11 minute episodes to complete this year. It's been great to see Mukpuddy go from 15 staff last year to 40 this year. Everyone is getting into a good rhythm and producing some great work.  

Last year James Cunningham approached me to be the cinematographer on a new 3d Feature film "Pandamonium" being made here in Auckland.  Of course I accepted and we have been working on story boards for the past few months. The production is in progress and also features Linhan Ye as Production designer. Linhan illustrated all the assets for our project "Atheums Way".  James and I have been using a process of photographing toys to block out scenes, we then pass that information onto the storyboard artists. We have a great team working pre production for this. Looking forward to showing more when it goes into full production.

And finally last month Jason Lei Howden Asked me to direct his 2nd Unit/Splinter Unit on his new film "Guns Akimbo" staring Daniel Radcliffe. We have been shooting for 2 weeks in Auckland NZ and have another 2 weeks to go. The production then heads of to Germany to complete the second block of shooting. As the film nears release I will be able to share more information about it.

Right now I am working 7 day weeks so I do not have much time to work on my own projects but I hope to return to the Mecha_Genesis Vol 2 very soon.

Patreon by Aleks Sakowski

Hello fellow beings from Earth. The_Mecha_Genesis is now officially on Patreon. If you would like to support the project in anyway this is the best way! There some some great rewards, check them all out here. 

Your contributions will make it possible for me to achieve my first goal of creating a dedicated Mecha Genesis website where you will be able to access all the characters, their stories and also read all the additional historical events as well as the citation sources. The possibilities are endless with the format and the history is deep.

For instance, the period of time called "The Breaking Nations" or when Mynd made contact with the Aues - The first off world sentient species to interact with us.  Read about the "great northern migrations" caused by the onset of the A1 Ice shelf or how Ellco Verun corp rose to commercial success through orbital fleet mining near the moons of Saturn. Find out what the Anzodus discovered during the 2999 Genix delegations and listen to the myths of the Gravtherical beings rumored to be 400 million years old. 

I Would like to add that I'm not there to try and pump out average art every day. I want to spend time creating a high quality product for you every 3 months or so. This means that you will receive something of higher value at the end of each project rather than small rushed digital items every day. I will eventually be giving out free prizes and special edition hard covers as give away's. 

This is just the start and I'd love you to be a part of it.
