Fanboy Screening Invitation

If you worked at Nick you could’ve been here for this. But at least you get to see Eric and Chad’s terrific invitation. (The screening was jam-packed and went well, thanks for asking.)

Steve Tompkins recording Janitor Poopatine at Nick

Simoon asked here if someone could “post a blog post with the all the cast members and their respective roles”. The answer is ‘yes’. I was waiting till next week’s 52nd and final (for now) recording session to do a post like this, but here you go.

The part of Fanboy is played by David Hornsby, most known for his work in and on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Nika Futterman is Chum Chum. She’s done a ton of voice-over work. That’s her as Adam on My Gym Partner’s a Monkey.

June 10th, 2009

Seagull

Here’s a whole lot of Lambe, Steve Lambe, for you. This seagull can be seen in many Fanboy episodes. The process of bringing it to screen started with Steve’s color concept below and went on to include the turnaround, expressions, and mouth chart, all from the hand of Lambe. If that weren’t enough, Steve then went on to compile a series of notes to help out the CG department in the animation of the bird’s feathers. The final image above got the painting treatment of Mr Chris Near. For a quick glimpse of the seagull in flight, watch the NOT FINAL version of the main title right here.
