Hi Bumming Friends, Prikle here.
So ever since we got popular from the Christmas Special in 2012, people have been demanding more Bumming Crew animations in the comment section of all our videos. I’m just posting to tell you what’s going on right now with myself and the rest of the crew, keep you up to date and all. For those who really want to see a Bumming animation well… you’re gonna have to wait.
First of all, right now both c0ke and I have applied to go to an animation institute in Denmark, which is not easy to get into. This is really stressful, especially for me because my immigration plans and visa depends on it. I know if I get in, they won’t be easy on me financially, which brings me to my second point.
I’m currently employed but don’t get enough work shifts, so I’m looking for a second job. I’m also working on animations for other people right now to get some exposure and money. One of those things is Skeff by Paul ter Voorde, the others I shouldn’t mention until they are released, I think. So my time animating will be spent doing commissioned work and stuff on Skeff until I get a lot of money and feel financially secure, or move to Denmark.
The rest of the crew are busy as always. Timbo is doing his last year of upper high, Harry is working full time and Johnny is working full time. We hardly ever get to talk together anymore, so the overall vibe that we get when we work together is not as obvious. We just need to take time off Bumming and focus on our own things right now because everyone’s top priority should not be something we make for fun and in our spare time.
I’ve been extremely worried about what’s going to happen this year with moving to Denmark and my relationship with Johnny, and the last thing I need is people pestering me (and the rest of the guys to a lesser extent) to make something that is essentially a waste of time for me right now. I understand that you may be disappointed by this but there’s nothing I can do. I’m usually the only person that makes the animations and since it’s a one man job, its very time consuming.
I would appreciate if you took this seriously and help us by politely telling anyone who asks when the next animation comes out, that we’re all busy and I don’t just pull this stuff out of my arse. We try to have fun with Bumming Crew, but it starts to feel like a chore when people bug us about it all the time.
We all have more important things to do, and we take a lot of time off when we edit videos for you. Don’t forget that Bumming isn’t about animation, we like just being silly too. If you subbed for just the animation, you may as well unsubscribe because we’re not that kind of channel.
