Gecko & Sticky Animatic
I thought it might be kind of cool to show you guys the animatic from Gecko & Sticky (because it is so radically different looking from the final animation). For those of you who don't know what an animatic is, it's the draft of a cartoon that consists mainly of key poses and timing (no animation). This animatic is what I pitched to Nickelodeon in order to see if they liked the idea or not. I actually thought they would reject most of it or want major changes. But, to my very pleasant surprise, they ended up really liking it!!! Here are links to both the animatic and the finished cartoon so that you can see the differences between the two:

That's still pretty animated for an animatic! Though it's tough to resist the temptation to just go ahead an animate when you're doing your animatic in flash.

Nice to see your guys' stuff turn out, got anything on your plate for the future?

Great stuff! I saw the animation on David's blog. It was fantastic!

Cool, I love checking out animatics. I love the part in the finished one when he jams the moss in Sticky's face. Funny stuff. Are you working on anything else right now?

I gotta echo dustin. Radically different? No way, you pretty much cleaned up and inbetweened your animatic. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I'll show you my final product and the animatic that I'm working from. You wanna talk radically different...

It turned out great. Everyone wants more, and soon! Don't disappoint!

thanks guys!

dustin: just personal prjects

kevin: yeah i kind of am but i'm not yet ready to discuss it.. :P

katz: when i said radically diff i was talking about the look of it rather than the content. super rough, unfinished drawings, no color or animation etc.
