Welcome, Pat Ventura!

March 21st, 2006


Yesterday, the newly named Random Cartoons welcomed Pat Ventura into the mix. He ran us through his board, “The Dangerous Duck Brothers”, which is about a couple of ducks out to do their family proud and break the record for speed in their rocket ship. Yeah. There’s a lot of hurt involved.

Pat is no stranger to being a short film creator. He has created two shorts for the past season of “Oh Yeah! Cartoons”. One called Jamal the Funny Frog and the other called The Semprini Triplets. He has also directed and storyboarded for Chalk Zone co-created by Random Cartoons Executive Producer Larry Huber, and Dr.Froyd’s Bill Burnett.

Welcome aboard Pat!

Eric Cookmeyer, our incredibly hard working PA, has worked on American Dad, Dragon Tales, Jackie Chan Adventures, Max Steel, and Baby Looney Tunes to name a few. On Friday, he whipped out the quickest PDFs of color art work I have ever seen accomplished by one man in a single day.

MacGregor Middleton, our Production Coordinator has worked on The New Adventures of Batman, Superman, Justice League, and Batman Beyond. I recently found out that along with his excellent coordinating skills, Mac is a supreme golfer. Go figure!
