Oh, yeah. Guess this is finally coming out. Finally able to talk about it soon! Next will be the STAR WARS work we did. Yep… fricken STAR WARS.
Here’s a fun new one we’re doing. It is a completely over-the-top-ridiculous animation. Maybe that gets said a lot these days, but um… yeah this one’s nuts.
We’re just on a roll this year. When first met Keith he was just starting his first season on 30 Rock. He had a killer idea for a cartoon that could be made for nickels. Normally we pride ourselves to make the best, high-quality animation possible. Keith convinced us to make the crappiest animation we had ever done. But you know what? It became charming. So here it is. Keith Powell’s Nate & Abe. It has one of the best casts we have ever seen for a cartoon like, David Wain, Robert Ben Garant, Alyssa Milano, Rachel Dratch, Aubrey Plaza, and John Lutz just to name a few.
We are premiering a 22 minute episode at the New York Television Festival, which is the frickin place to premier a new pilot. Nate & Abe is about best friends and high school freshmen who are desperate to ‘branch out’ from the insular world they’ve known their entire lives and explore their differences. But when the road to diversity is paved with perverted principals, racist parents, Mandingo porn, gay bullies, and obnoxiously large-breasted cheerleaders, Nate and Abe begin to realize that the bond that connects them is greater than the ones that divide them. Here, watch a clip:
Winning awards too. We won best short at Scream Fest in Los Angles, the biggest horror festival on the west coast… maybe the world. It definitely is the biggest horror industry event out there. Lots of fake blood too.
Here’s a pic of über producer Jen Luk hoisting the 728 lb golden skull award for our 2.5D animated film POSTHUMAN. That’s also how she deals with slacking animators too, just lifts them by the neck for a good throttling. Look for Jen & Cole on tour with the film as it plows through the festival circuit. We play Australia next mate.
Now it might be time to get a network to turn this into a bonafide series dammit.
Here’s a little teaser keyframe from a holiday special we’ve been working on. The fan-loved SyFy show, Eureka, is doing another holiday special episode. It’s animated. We did the climatic finale. We got to blow a few things up. Good times.
Like Keanu, Fargo knows:
Tune in at 8/7c December 6th for the premiere on SyFy. Here’s a link to a promo clip on the SyFy website!
