Currently I use my blue headset to record audio for the Infinite Canvas Screencast, but they don't produce the best quality sound recording. I'd like to get a Blue Snowball or Blue Yeti to use. Should run about $100, give or take some shipping
Add cartoons to the show :D
$50 per vlog
I love the animation style of Zero Punctuation. I could add animation like that (in my own comic style) to Infinite Canvas quite easily! It would be much more fun to watch cartoons during some segments than to stare at my face emoting. So if we make this funding goal, I will kick in some 'toons to help make my points.

In this episode we're talking Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Unity development with Janina Woods, founder of Ateo, one of Zurich's only 3D game development shops. How do two dimensional user interfaces hold up in a 3D environment? What tools are most popular for developing these kinds of experiences?

The Infinite Canvas Screencast #1: ALA, will-change, How-to Warm Up Sketching

I demo warmup sketching for viewer Micah Godbolt, discuss this week’s A List Apart web animation double feature, snap.js, Visualized conference, and give a sneak peek into some upcoming animated stories I’m working on :D Thinking I need to make smaller episodes. This one was so big. There was a typo in one of the URLs, and it took a full day to re-export and re-upload. Argh. What do you think? Bite-sized or lunch-sized?
