This is not an attack by any means, but just a very blunt bit.
I've been following this 'movie' progress for about ten years now. Yes, ten! (Though more accurately, discovered ten years ago and checked in about five times since then). I admired the art and characters of realistic but well done patterns and markings when I was a young teenager. This movie has been over fourteen years in the making, and no doubt people who were once hyped and passionate have long forgotten about it, as had I, until someone cracked a joke about it recently.
I saw the most recent estimation of 'another 1-2 years'. Threads from previous years were simply vaguely answered "we don't know", et cetera.
By that estimation, that's fifteen or sixteen years in the making. Sixteen years that no doubt will cause inconsistencies in animation quality, art style progression (and differences between artists, already the emoticons look outdated) further on in the movie, and sixteen years of lost interest among dozens of people. One whole person could have been born and grown up to be able to help out in that time. The main website seems to be outdated. The occasional two or so second progress shots are... well, two seconds of several frames.
This forum looks like tumbleweeds are blowing on by! Where are the fans who will watch this? Is there a fanbase over even 500+ to watch it? The forum itself only has 673 users, no doubt a majority inactive. As mentioned before, I barely remembered it until one joked about it as we reminisced on deviantArt "wolf famous" artists.
Sorry, but this is just mindblowing to me. Several years ago I got into animation and have improved slowly. I know animators from all walks of life - hobbyists, professionals, friends who have even interned for cartoons like Regular Show, and instructors; before anyone might jump to the "how about YOU do it better" defense.
Yes, I get it, many people working on it. Free time. Non-profit. You guys are very dedicated to this! But sixteen years with little to keep fans' interest, or gain new fans? I cannot wrap my head around this. I would love to see this. But how on earth would I even be updated on this in an organized manner? Is there a solid plan for the movie, or even a plan to keep people in the loop? Would I, someone who first heard about it a decade ago, still have interest? Where are the people who were interested 10+ years ago? Are the ones who wanted to provide voice acting even around still? The wolf comic phase like KayFedewa and many others on various art sites has long gone by (or at least died down & considerably less popular) to boot. :S
