I meant to comment earlier, whoops. This was fantastic, I'm looking forward to more. This is the most I've ever cared about Hawkeye, maybe I should actually check out the comics

Hey, thanks guys! I love this comic a lot, you should definitely read it. No one cares about Hawkeye and I think that only adds to his charm.

Episode 2 should be out in a month or less.

Here's a preview: https://youtu.be/Z5Voi9uskf8

@NFBisms, major compliments on the continued high-quality of your Hawkeye edit!

It's clear that the magic of your first episode is not a one-hit-wonder, but representative of the quality of your efforts.

Once all episodes are complete (how many are you aiming for?), I suggest you submit the entire series as one item for your IFDB listing. (y)

Thank you! I really enjoy making these!

I'm pretty green at a lot of what I've had to do for this - not least of which is directing and [somewhat] animating at this scale. So I'm glad it pays off, because it *is* a lot of effort. ^_^

I've got one more episode in production. I could probably do more, but past the next issue would make any other stopping point but the end of the 22 issue run feel unsatisfying. It's still not much in the way of a definitive conclusion, but I think it ties together the set of issues we've chosen to do. So while it still doesn't "resolve" narratively, the little snapshot of the comic I have here will at least be thematically cohesive, leaving off on a common Hawkeye status quo. It's the end of the first act, but as an overall finale it works to at least make these 4 episodes a Character Study! lol

I didn't realize I would be able to submit something like this! I'd definitely give it a shot when the time comes

Your Hawkeye will be an unusual entry in FE's database because the source material is neither movie nor TV series. But you're giving it motion and audio (not just dialog but SFX and music too), and editing the narrative to fit the medium that you have transformed this into. šŸ˜²

Your Hawkeye is a fanedit on so many levels, it's absolutely earning its place in the listings!

Plus, your work opens my mind to the fact that fanediting can be even more diverse than I was previously thinking of. So thank you for expanding my horizon!

I believe the closest edit to this on IFDB would be this Watchmen comic edit. As far as non-movie/TV edits, we also have a few radio drama edits and a few video game edits.

Here's a standalone short we did while waiting on our Clint to finish up his episode 4 material:

Episode 4:

And that's a wrap! Those four episodes make up the "series" of the project. (Not counting the bonus short, watch that after the main ones.) Please check it out and let me know what you think. It was - it was a lot of work. Things I'd never done before. But it was really cool to direct voice actors and build the scenes from the source material. So much fun to work on and edit. Hope you guys like it. In time for the D+ show, too.

Do you think anyone would watch a behind the scenes commentary with me and the cast of this?

I certainly would, too. Just out of respect for your work at least.
