Team Frong

I’ve been working on a website for us recently. Feel free to check it out!

With Homestuck (possibly) returning in a month, do you guys think you'll have something ready to show? A teaser trailer perhaps? The new updates will stir up activity in the fandom, so I can't think of a better time!

We’ll see! 

Actually, I followed the FTS Project pretty closely, and they were in fact shut down by What Pumpkin! They had a team and had started animation work when an email asking for permission was given a big red "no" stamp, and they decided to obey WP's wishes. They worked on their own original project for a bit, but that died from lack of interest. I'm not sure why What Pumpkin said what they did considering it was a free fanwork, or how their situation was judged differently from yours. It was weird.

Dang! I’m sorry to hear about that.

Do you know where I could find the Homestuck anime???? :c

It is within all of us.

Do any of you at Team Frong recall the FTS Studios Homestuck animation project? I am not entirely familiar with it, but it seems it was shutdown by What Pumpkin for some reason or another.

If I remember correctly, one of our team members was/is on FTS Studios. I don’t know all of the details about FTS. I do know that a bit of their organization and policies bugged me a tad bit, but honestly I’m not one to talk, haha.

Regardless, I know that this post says they were/are working on an animated short. I don’t know if they ever finished it. It would be cool if they did! I don’t think it was shut down by What Pumpkin. It’s far more likely that FTS didn’t feel like they had the permission to do an animation, and after sending multiple requests for permission and not getting any response, they stopped trying.

Again, I’m not entirely sure! But things do happen that way sometimes. In all actuality, you don’t exactly need permission from What Pumpkin to make a fanimation. You by all technicality do, but What Pumpkin is generally okay with things as long as you’re not making a profit or interfering with their profit making in some way. If What Pumpkin was making an anime themselves (or something similar), then you would need to ask. Otherwise, it’s typically fine. 

But we got permission a long time ago anyways just in case, haha.

When are you going to announce the writers?

The Frong and Hypnotoad tend to mind their own businesses. If they ever crossed paths, however, it would be likely that they would croak profanities at eachother. However, this meeting is unlikely.

Has anyone applied for being a voice actor for you works?

There is no amount of staring and pausing before the word “yes” that would answer this question.

I don’t know if we’ve ever released final concepts, but here’s some. This is the exact style we’re going for.
