Zombie Zealot

2014-04-06 12:57:47 by Michael-T-Scott

I've never been a fan of the whole 'zombie' craze and I don't do material that has a short shelf life (e.g. pop culture or parodies... Those are just too easy). So I wanted to see if I could take a subject I think is played out and put an original view on it. I came up with the idea of a religious zombie. Has it been done before? I don't know, I don't keep up with this shit, but I made something with a popular subject and didn't want to lock myself in an oven while I was making this. I hope you enjoy.


Here's the kind folks that helped on this (including me):

Gregory Goat: Angry M.D.

2013-10-12 15:47:31 by Michael-T-Scott

Worked with a couple of fun artists on this one. Backgrounds and Gregory's design by Jami Cardwell (http://jami-c.tumblr.com/) and all other character designs by John Varvir (http://rivrav.tumblr.com/). I wanted a background style reminiscent of the old UPA cartoons and think Jami delivered beautifully.

Fun facts:
- Gregory is based on a former co-worker. A peach of a gal with some... Temperament issues.
- "St. Travis Medical" is named after the late Travis the Chimp.
- Gregory yells Al Pacino's great line from Heatin Italian.

Hope you enjoy another conversation with an incarcerated orca.

So for the past year my YouTube channel has been under contract with a network. Thanks to their neglect, the channel suffered and I pretty much went on strike, not putting up any new material. Yesterday, that contract ran out and now I'm back to bring life into the channel once again. So come on by, kick some tires, maybe TP the front yard, but feel free to pass it along and subscribe if you like the brand of junk I'm pushing.

Thanks for the support, gang!

We've received quite a bit of press on our recent news that we're producing an animated film featuring Phil Hartman. You can check all the news out here.

If you're a fan of Phil's (or are just curious about the project), be a fan of the film's Facebook page and get exclusive production updates and rare never-before-seen or heard material from Phil Hartman.

Thanks for everyone's support. All of us are really excited to make this happen!

Stupid Day Job

My friend Anthony Houde over at Vakavadesigns has agreed to have his extremely creative work featured on my YouTube channel. Here's one of his more popular pieces. Enjoy! (Or don't... Don't let me tell you what to do.)

Follow my ass on Twittbook.

So this is my fifth William "Humpty" Dumpty cartoon (not counting the Facebook, Birthday and his appearance in a Christmas cartoon). Loosely based on my first experience at a Build-A-Bear workshop.

Also, if you're looking for voice talent for a project, contact me privately and I'll be happy to help you out (yes, for free). But first, take a listen to a demo or two and decide if I may be right for you.

Thanks and happy bidding!

Happy Birthday from Humpty Dumpty

2012-12-01 21:06:39 by Michael-T-Scott

So two things that made this come together:

A.) I'm currently working on a new "Humpty Dumpty" cartoon.

B.) When a friend's birthday arrives, I usually e-mail or post some birthday-related video on Facebook (Elvis, Beatles, Garfield, Three Stooges, Stevie Wonder, etc.) and wanted something from me instead of something routine.

It only took a day to finish from writing to completed animation, but I wanted to make something amusing that I - and others, obviously - could pass on to friends to give them a smile, chuckle, or disappointment on their birthday. For me, the other stuff just wasn't cutting it. So here it is, a birthday greeting from Humpty Dumpty (my version of the character, of course) that we can all use for shitz and gigglez:

Is it too soon to make a Christmas cartoon? Honestly, I don't care. This was an idea I wrote several years back and came across it again recently. I think it fits with this being my first Christmas not being close to any family. As usual, enjoy or don't.
