Ancient Fanboy Promo

May 24th, 2010

Fanboy & Chum Chum promo interstitial 1 from fredseibert on Vimeo.

So way back at the beginning of production, Eric and his crew produced a series of short Fanboy promos to tease the show. The gang worked pretty hard on them, but, to the best of my knowledge, the clips never aired. The characters evolved a bit between the time they were made and when they were scheduled to air, so maybe that’s why. Here’s the first. Eric and Andy Kelly handled the storyboard, and Brian Sheesley directed.

Let the Storyboard Pitches Begin

May 13th, 2010

Eric Robles, Eddie Trigueros, & Justin Long

Well, the first storyboard pitch of season number two is officially in the bank, as director Eddie Trigueros has run the masses through episode #201, “Where the Toys Aren’t,” written by Steve Tompkins. Above, Fanboy creator/photograph-stager Eric Robles, Eddie, and storyboard man Justin Nichols. This is Justin’s debut board on the show, and it’s Eddie’s first crack at directing a Fanboy episode. The verdict? An enthusiastic thumbs-up from all in attendance.

The main title, nominated for a Daytime Emmy

If Steve and Caesar winning juried Daytime Emmy Awards for Individual Achievement in Animation weren’t enough, Fanboy and Chum Chum is now nominated in two competitive categories, too. First, directors Jim Schumann and Brian Sheesley, along with voice director Ginny McSwain, are in the race for Directing in an Animated Program. Their competitors are all on Nick shows - Mighty B!, SpongeBob, and Penguins. I’d like them all to win, but I want the Fanboy team to win more.

Then there’s the nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Main Title and Graphic Design. This goes to a whole group of folks, comprising:

Shaun Cashman, Director - Graphics
Eric Robles, Creator/Character Designer
Caesar Martinez, Background Layout Designer
Niki Yang, Storyboard Artist
Erik Kling, Animator
Dennis Shelby, Animator
Chad Woods, Art Director
Steve Lambe, Character Designer

The competition here is Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and Avec Eric.

The Daytime Emmy Awards will air live on CBS [Read more…]
