Great, you've worked on some of the biggest reasons I hate the new AS.

Is 2005 new to you? If so, I want your time machine.

My favorite show was Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, then Birdman.

So, you have exactly one post to convince me why I should watch your show, without making it sound like complete and utter shit. Go.

We have popsicles?

It's not my show but I love working within the relatively smaller crews which returns more creative liberty in most situations. You may not like everything on the channel, but all the artists truly got to express themselves. I don't see that often in this industry of white washing & stereotypical laziness.

I'm new threads are discouraged because they're usually from 12-17 year old kids who have nothing more to contribute than to announce that they are now actively posting on a forum, which is usually short-lived as they are banned for making their first ever thread. It's simply to stop them clogging up the BBS with threads about nothing. This however, may announce that he's new to the forum but he has good insight which is relevant to the website's appeal (animation/art) and wanted to know if anyone had any questions for him. The thread may have announced he's new but that's not the subject of the thread whatsoever.

Question to OP, I see AdultSwim as a relaxed network that doesn't focus on serious broadcasting or taking much too seriously, really other than pumping out shows they think the viewers like or they themselves like. Does working for them reflect how they appear to the public? Is it a relaxed, fun environment or are they a bit stricter behind closed doors to get the work out in a timely fashion?

Sure, for the most part. We are all human so we deal with human issues like overly passive or confrontational personalities, but in general, we love it. We do stress about deadlines like any other studio but otherwise, no complaints. [As] has some of the lowest animation budgets on TV so that can be frustrating.

I don't know if this is too personal, but hows your pay? Is it per show and how much you devote to it or something else? Do you get a good bit of money?

I answered this question earlier but I can't give a specific. We're each negotiated a work rate & it upsets others to see a specific number (especially if it's higher lol.)

I have more questions! When will American Dad completely replace Family Guy on the lineup? Will My Little Pony ever show it's face on [AS]? How long do you predict it will take for King of the Hill to be revived due to DVD sales?

8 or 9 inches. Something like that. Orel's dad is a bit smaller than my forearm.

Probably not. Never (hopefully, I'd rather have original content.) It's a Fox, who knows.

You guys should let my crew control your channel. Shitty animation and gay jokes. All day, every day. Or at least all the time Cartoon Network allows.

Alright, I've got a couple of questions:
1. Did you ever work with a "Micheal Wasmund"? He's my cousin and I know he worked for AS a few years ago, might have left before you joined though.
2. Besides the Robot Chicken hat, what's the Adult Swim/Team Fortress 2 promo that's going on?
3. Speaking of the Robot Chicken hat, how are they sending out the codes? Because I signed up for one on the 27th and I STILL haven't gotten my code...

How hard does your team have to work on the animation, ideas and other stuff?

Is it very rushed and time restrained?

Little fun fact: Dana Synder (the voice of Master Shake) as well as Tim Heidecker were both born in my hometown. Just thought I'd point that out.

As for OP, where is William Street exactly anyway? Also, have you ever met Mike Lazzo before?

There are strict deadlines, but for the most part, I wouldn't call it rushed but there are plenty of super late nights. We all work very hard, but it isn't as many people as you may think. My department on Beforal Orel was 3 people to handle all post-production except editing which was handled by one person. Robot Chicken on the otherhand has 6 to 9 people at all times in post. They simply have more shows.

Side note: Dinosaur office is also made at the RC studios. Their new studio is stupid huge.

1. No, sorry. Abso is located nearby but I don't really hang with that crowd. I would though, I'm just not around them enough.
2. No clue, ha. Like I said earlier, that stuff is kept hidden from me on purpose because I'm a TF2 fan.
3. Funny thing, I haven't gotten my code either & I'm a former employee (I hopped studios about a years ago.) Ha!

Nope! Mike is someone I've been seeking to say hello to for a while. I have met Dan Harmon, Dino (often, actually. He gave me watermelon once), Jay Johnson, + a bunch of other random folks. I did brush by Keith, the head dude, but was way to nervous (as the youngest member) to just intrude on a conversation. Felt the same way about Lucas too.

A few questions. Where did you learn animation?

Are there any shows that you're trying to get on right now?

Have you ever done any random work for a show besides animation (like grunting into a mic for a one-shot character or something)?

Are you planning on pitching a show to AS with a crack team of NG animators? That would be pretty cool.

Have you ever gotten to play with the character models? If it were me, I be sitting there like a little kid, making Orel beat the shit out of his Dad.

And lastly, if you did get to play with the models, could you make your own little shorts? Not for AS, but just take out your phone or something and make your own Morel Orel short to show your friends. I think that'd be pretty fun haha, when you get too bored working on something you can just take a brake, bring up your little short, and edit it.

Good morning.

At 7/2/12 06:18 AM, Chocomilk wrote: A few questions. Where did you learn animation?

Never actually. My girl is a 2D/3D animator but I started learning After Effects in La film school (LAFS.) I knew adobe pretty well so the transition wasn't hard. I'm a lot quicker to call myself a compositor or VFX artist before animator.

Are there any shows that you're trying to get on right now?

Anything Titmous makes & Aqua as Super Show, looks fun.

Have you ever done any random work for a show besides animation (like grunting into a mic for a one-shot character or something)?

I'm the model for Cosby & my face was distorted like crazy to make JFK face (similar complexion I guess.) All for frankenhole.

Are you planning on pitching a show to AS with a crack team of NG animators? That would be pretty cool.

I'd do that in a heartbeat, trying to get zeurel a gig here actually.

Have you ever gotten to play with the character models? If it were me, I be sitting there like a little kid, making Orel beat the shit out of his Dad.

Haaa I'm delicate with those models. Only the model makers and animators really know how far you can push em till they break ha.

And lastly, if you did get to play with the models, could you make your own little shorts? Not for AS, but just take out your phone or something and make your own Morel Orel short to show your friends.

Well, I'd love that, but Dino actually has little to no respect for directors so If I wanted to direct an episode, I just throw my hat in. Definitely doing it next season.

Here's a thought. Have a photo of you with Seth Green on the production site along with another photo of you holding a piece of paper with "NG" on it and then I'll believe you. Until then, I call bullshit.

Haha, I can do it this Friday during weeklies. Like I said, Seth is my former boss. I currently work for Starburns industries with Dino & a bunch of Mr. Show artists who've all grown up & have kids now.

I'll do you one better. If any of you can find me a 3D Maya or SKP file of the NG logo, I will use the 3D printer to make it THEN go around the office with it to take photos.
