Ask Jan
I know you've been to conventions. Have you ever been lucky enough to meet a cast member or a fellow animator?

Eeyup.
I’ve met Tara Strong, Peter New, M.A. Larson, John De Lance and Lauren Faust.

Good sir Mr Jan bro, would you kindly tell me a little about the creation of flash puppets as I am rather interested in how they are constructed and how one might put them to use, If it would not be much trouble. Thank you for your time. Your Good friend whom you don't know, Mr Ponycorps.

Unfortunately my schedule is pretty full up until the end of August. Contact me back then, and we’ll see if we can schedule some private lessons and tutorials.

First rule when asking for help or favors from someone and make him/her actually interested: Don’t make it sound like a threat.Even if intended as a joke.Good day.Lol, just kidding.The concept of puppets is quite complicated to explain. I’m afraid I can’t really take the time to answer right now.

Hi. I just finally learned how to animate in Flash. I made a couple simple ones. Sweeite Belle winking and a voice over of her saying hello in my voice. Anyways, I was just wondering if ya had the double rainboom puppets ya could send me. I only got the Rainbow Dash and CmC ones and the site's been shut down and I can't find them anywhere else. Thanks.

I have never used Double Rainboom Puppets. I built my own. And I’d suggest you to do the same.

I recently started a blog for my Pony OC. I was wondering how long it took for ask-thecrusaders or goaskbuttonmash to really get going?

Depends on the amount of questions you answer, in how much time, how and if you manage to get the audience engaged.
Personally, Ask-thecrusaders took about two weeks.

I am not able to tell about goaskbuttonmash, since it is not a blog of mine.

Hiya sir Jan. I just wanted to tell you that we'll all still be here when the whole thing is over. We like your shtuff, it's cool shtuff. And you're a cool guy. So we'll be there to support you, even those %£#@&!§'s who can't scroll five posts down :)

Thank you a lot! Highly appreciated :)

Why do so many people feel the need to give you advice?

Because it’s an average human’s nature. Nothing wrong with that.

Why not start working on non-pony content, and/or the Ask the CMC tumblr while waiting for an answer. You might even be able to start and finish something you can release before they even give you an answer. Why wait wondering if you can work on A when you know you can work on B in the meantime?

Because I am kinda working on other stuff right now, Freelance work.

Do you have any plans for any original content right now?

The answer to this is just FIVE posts below.

Can you work on the anims and just not release them until you get answer?

And what if the answer is negative? I’m not putting my time and effort in something I don’t know if I can publish at all.
