Cartoon Network, Boomerang & Whole Hog
Sadly Cartoon Network UK isn't really creating much content these days.
I was lucky enough to work as an animator on various comedy shows between
January 2007 and March 2009 (That's 2 years 3 months according to Linked in)
One of the shows I worked on was Skatoony.
I had a great time animating on all three series.
The show featured "real" contestants in a cartoon world.
We really had to tank through it, but I absolutely loved this job as it was a chance to do some
bold pose-to-pose comedy character work.
It was also just so much fun to animate a cartoon character interacting with the live action kids!
More about Skatoony and it's creators here.
Here's a sequence I animated. (Design by James Fox, Norm Konyu and Rich Wake).
And here's another clip I animated. It's not a great example of my animation skills but I just
found the clip and it brought back great memories.
(Plus it's not often you animate a whole pop vid with on your own in a couple of days!)
It's also lovely to see that a kid liked it enough to film it off the telly.
After Skatoony things were never quite as much fun at CN...
I did a bit of animating on a promo for Ben 10 - but this wasn't really my cup of tea.
Next I animated on a pilot for a promo for the Boomerang Channel.
This was fun I seem to remember. It featured a little puppy doing whimsical puppy stuff.
I don't have any pictures of video clips.
I hope this picture of a cute puppy will do.
Here Come The Games
This was lots of fun - a comedy pilot by the creators of Skatoony.
