SEE THE ORIGINAL 1983 FINSTER FINSTER “STORE WARS!”

Hey Random Cartoon Kadets!
My buddy Steve Moore, whom I attended Cal Arts with, way back in the early 80’s, has posted the original 1983 “STORE WARS” pencil test on his animation site!
WOW! It was a surprise to me.
This 5 minute pencil test stars the original Finster brothers, Mrs. Finster and the chickens. (Which originally had no heads! They were fresh from the freezer case!)
I also used no music at all! I hired someone in the music dept to do the laser s/fx for me.
Backgrounds are minimal to none.
This “STORE WARS” version didn’t deal too much with story. The newest Frederator version takes care of that. I wanted pure action!!!
Anyway; here’s the link to Steve Moore’s site.
He’s a great guy and a wonderful animator. Check his stuff out!
Have fun!!!
Turn up the sound!!
