Our Backgrounds

The Art Direction I am trying for is a sort of vignette style background. The idea is that the least important parts of the background will fade off gradually into the surrounding areas of the scene. creating a frame for the characters action in a sort of nonconventional way.

Below: Two rough backgrounds from our show. They were drawn by the amazingly talented Chris Tsiriotis.

Recording Our Script

On September 24th 2008 Josh and I recorded our script with the guidance of Kris Zimmerman our Voice Director. We cast Keith Ferguson to play the role of Khan and Adam Paul to play Manny. Both Keith and Adam added so much depth to our characters. Their phenomenal voice work made our silly drawings feel so real.
