New Series Forthcoming

2010-03-01 02:47:47 by sirjeffofshort

It's been a while since I posted so I figured I would bring everyone (or at least anyone who cares) up to speed...

Sketched (for reasons I can't entirely disclose) is on a bit of a hiatus. More episodes will return in one way shape or form, rest assured.

However we (the sketched crew and I) are not extremely good at siting around, fingers crossed waiting for something to happen... so in the meantime we have begun a NEW series that will be premiering about one month from now.

This release will be just in time for Wondercon in SanFrancisco which myself and Bill Rinaldi plan on attending as guests. If anyone else is planning on going perhaps we'll see you there.

I don't want to divulge too much of the new series secrets as all the registration paperwork has yet to be sorted out, but I can say that we currently have the first two episodes recorded with several others being written by various members of our troupe.

That's about all going over here.

Till next time.


German fan dub!

Somebody out there likes us enough to make a German fandub of our Prospector sketch... it seriously made me laugh all over again...

Just thought I'd share.

Holiday Cartoon (from a friend)

Hey everyone, a friend just sent along a holiday cartoon he made and I thought it was pretty damn cool so I figured I'd share it with you guys.

/* */

It was an interesting week this week, at least in comparison to my usual home by 6 in bed by 10 lifestyle (hey, I have a busy day, I needs my rest haha).

For starters, the new babies sketch reached 100k views this week, which is quite the milestone for me, so thanks to everyone who watched and reviewed. We've actually had an influx of reviews on all of our movies and I feel bad as I have not been able to respond to all of them (a wall I believe a number of people probably hit at one point or another) but rest assured I do read them all and words of encouragement or kind words of criticism are always appreciated.

Also I had a meeting at Warner Bros. which was fun. It's been almost two years since I've been over there on the lot and I got to visit one of my favorite places in L.A. ...the old Gilmore Girls set. haha. I know it's lame but it's such a serene representation of a perfect town from around the area where I grew up... I love it. It's an old New England set that has been up FOREVER and used in countless productions, so it has since had aspects removed and moved for other productions, but it is still like being in an extremely peaceful town back home... just don't turn around to see the dozens of sound stages, palm trees and large corporate buildings directly behind you haha.

Lastly I went to see Dethklok on friday and I will say they put on an awesome show. I know their tour is over now but I highly recommend seeing them if they ever go on tour again, and I'm not even a huge fan of metal most of the time. The show was just amazingly well produced, with animated music videos and performances playing durring the songs with comedic interludes between them, all around a really great show.

That's about all that's been up around this side of things. We're still debating whether or not we will have time to do a Christmas cartoon this year... but it's a possibility.

Till next time, keep on a rockin'.

One year!

2009-10-25 00:38:24 by sirjeffofshort

I just realized that tomorrow (today for some of you... and everyone who reads this tomorrow) marks one year since the sketched series started with the now (somewhat) infamous "Pregnancy Test" and I thought that was pretty cool.

So I guess I just wanted to say an official thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last year and helped us get from one cartoon to the next (nine in one year with a backlog of 5 or so finished for the coming months) and I hope you guys will continue to stick with us for more sketched episodes in the future as well as a few new projects coming down the pipeline.


Yeah... it sucks. (pic below)

p.s. New Sketched is out now.

My car is smashed... big time.

New Sketched!

Hello to everyone out there! New "Sketched" is in the portal, check it out here...

I apologize for the shortness of this episode after such a long hiatus, but I think it was a good warm up for our new and improved (although not too much) style of animation.

Hope you guys enjoy.
