It is time. The new master plan for my blog is being unveiled. I am attempting to chronicle the day to day happenings at the studio–be it an exciting discovery in animation to total and complete mental breakdowns. To do this, I have enlisted the help of everyone working on Oh Yeah!–both on the creative and production ends. Each day, they will give me a couple of sentences that summarize their daily grind. And I will publish them. It’ll be more fun than salt on a snail! Let’s see what happens.
QUOTE: “It’s a very straightforward cartoon now. No more of this booga booga stuff” Larry Huber
Kyle Carrozza–MooBeard the Cow Pirate: Kyle isn’t here right now Mrs. Torrance (for those of you who haven’t seen “The Shining”, rent it.) MooBeard is shipped and Kyle is hopefully busy working on his next cartoon to pitch to us.
Andrew Dickman, Ivan the Unbearable Andrew swung by my office this afternoon and cheerfully set up another pitch for his short, “Magical Mindy”. Says Dickman,” I’m also here for signing off drawings (on Ivan) and such, and then I’ll be back on Wednesday for X-sheet checking.” He was hoping to get Larry Huber to sign off on his work. If I see Andrew on Wednesday, it means he made it out of Huber’s office alive…
Adam Henry, Krunch and the Kid: I couldn’t find Adam today. I searched and searched. I can only imagine he has been sucked into the abyss we call “Shipping A Show This Week.”
Diane Kredensor and Dana Galin, Call Me Bessie: They are in New York which does this weird thing where they are three hours ahead of Los Angeles time. I couldn’t speak to them about their day today because I got started late. Note to self: Early interviews tomorrow. Girls! If you’re out there! Write us!
Jeff DeGrandis, The Finster/Finster Show: “I would say that one of my biggest challenges (today) is designing the ultra-weird mouth charts for weird Finster board poses and weird, off-character dialogue recording.” Weird!
Aliki Theofilopoulos, Yaki and Yumi: I caught Aliki with her ultra cool director Jun Falkenstein and her equally cool Art Director, Paul Stec have a meeting. Aliki (motions to her boards):”We’re making sure we’re all on the same page with lighting and drool effects” Paul:”We’re letting Aliki know about background stuff that will require timing.” Thanks guy and gals!
Jerry Beck, Hornswiggle: “We’re in the middle of it all. We’ve auditioned and cast our voices. We’re recording next week. I’m writing our script right now (for the record). I just put all of these pictures up around my office so people think I’m working.”
Pen Ward, Adventure Time: I discovered from Eric Homan that Pen Ward spent all night here, and left at around 3PM to sleep. I was unable to get to him on time. I’ll be in at 5AM tomorrow morning for his interview. Right…
Eric, Mac, Jack, and Therese: These guys are busy as hell. Therese:”We’re shipping two shows this week. “Ivan” and “Krunch and the Kid” We have last minute prep with art work, board panels, records, etc.” Essentially, they’re making sure everything is perfect for the overseas studio. Jack:”And I’m huffing glue sticks.”
Eric Homan: (Chewing thoughtfully on a Tootsie Roll Pop) “I’ll get back to you when “Fear Factor” is over.”
Larry Huber: “Larry is working intimately with all of the young talent in the studio trying to educate them in the ways of TV production without discouraging them from entering as a professional.”
