"10 Years of FARToons"
February 2011 marked the tenth year of FARToons Productions. So I made this crappy little montage of all my crappy little cartoons from over the years. Note, there are three different versions of this video.
"The Wish Fish Family - Episode #7 - The Fish Family"
This was the first released cartoon of the year. Production began in December 2010 and ended in January 2011. I remember my nephew was being bored while I was in the middle of working on this. So I had to drop it and go to the hospital. I also remember what a pain in the ass it was to make the drunken characters wobble around.
"The Wish Fish Family - Episode #8 - Southern Fried Fish"
This is one of the best cartoons I've ever done, I'm sad to say. It is incredibly offensive but wasn't meant to be anti-African American. If anything its purpose was served in mocking the Ku Klux Klan. I did research and a lot of the rituals are totally legit. The Klan really is this fucked up.
"South Park Interactive"
I spent of a few of the later months in 2011 working on "South Park Interactive", an interactive Flash game. This is a commercial I did for it. I actually sent the game to Comedy Central and have never heard back from them. But I was contacted by a person interested in turning it into an iPhone app.
"Merely Meerkats - Pilot Episode - You Booze, You Lose"
Merely Meerkats was the biggest release of the year. Though I didn't completely finish the scripted version I posted it on YouTube anyway. You can tell when watching that the animation slowly improves as it goes along. That is because I had no idea what I was doing in the beginning. Later on I figured out the animation style I was going with, which was crappy cut-out animation used with Flash tweens. It's not the most beautiful thing to look at I admit, but it is my biggest project to date. And just that I got it done (well, pretty much done) is an accomplishment I suppose.
Other "highlights" include some Looney Tunes montages I edited together in dedication of Chuck Jones and Wile E. Coyote. I also started this stupid blog in June 2011. A nice waste of time. But this concludes our 2011 year in review.
