So, 3.5 years after we pitched the thing we finaly got to make it. Well half of it. The last half is full brilliant color animation (because that's all they would allow us budget wise), and the first half is a very, very fleshed out animatic. The 22 minute Pilot is a wrap for now and is screening for our peers at Cartoon Network on Friday. If you didn't know , I along with my friends Andy Schuhler and Shannon Tindle created a pilot for Cartoon network which we finally started full production on (in our spare time) in mid October 2006. Our goal was to bring some feature sensabilities to an animated tv show in story , tone , pace and visual language. Oh and to make it entertaining as hell. We just wanted to make something that we would have an absolute ball working on. Cartoon Network let us do it and people tell us we did alright. Will you ever see it? WHO KNOWS! Keep posted. So this is a poster I cranked out last night for the screening. And if you look down 6 posts ago you can see a few special poses I did for our show.

Hey Shane,
Your poster's pretty damn rad, man. I remember Andy showing us gilroy our second year (waaay back in '03) and he got us so stoked. Is it a feature? A show? How can I get me some Gilroy up here?
