This is the latest incarnation of an idea for a cartoon short I've had for about 10 years. It's based on an Abbot and Costello Vaudeville routine called "Who's on first." These guys have gone through a few changes over the years, but I'm feeling good about this one here. I hope to start animating them over Christmas. They were modelled in Lightwave 3d, a tool I've used for about 8 or 9 years. I Love the Plasticky look of the characters and the Wallace & Grommit style cheesy smile on Crispy Bacon.
Okay, here we go. This is going to get pretty nasty. My writing skills are going to be put to the test here, as well as publicly humiliating myself with my many dodgy artworks. I can't hide behind a desk here or behind the (relative) safety of an Art Director or agent type person. This is very intimidating, raw and unpremeditated. I'll start from this minute and expand outward from there. If my ramblings are confusing at first, take solace in the reality that I actually talk like this! MWUAHAHAH!
