Blind Ferret is working on a feature-length movie based on the webcomic Looking For Group scheduled for completion in 2008. Ryan Sohmer gave me a heads-up that they've put out a short to announce the project. It's a 4 minute parody of a song from the Little Mermaid (can't remember right now) with the undead character Richard from LFG singing "Slaughter Your World."
Blind Ferret is the shop that's done both the PVP animated series and the Ctrl-Alt-Del animation. This is a pretty bold step forward for them. Once I get out of vacation mode I hope to get more inside scoop on it.

Warren Ellis just announced on his email list that he would be closing down his ENGINE site this August 31st. Possibly to remain up in archived form or maybe just to go away completely. Ellis isn't leaving online activity and indicated he'd have another community-oriented site coming later in the year.
While we're on Ellis I wonder what's going on with Rocket Pirates? While the long-delayed webcomic anthology site is still not here, Ellis did announce Freak Angels - an open-ended steam-punkish webcomic he's writing along with artist Paul Duffield.
