Mallcops! The Point of Hot Dogs
Wow. Ok finally done here. So with much fanfare I present "The Point of Hot Dogs."
It was quite an experience putting "Hot Dogs" together. The first script came along quickly. The whole episode was based on the single joke at the end - The Point of Hot Dogs - or lack thereof as explained by Capt. Farrell. I wrote the script at work during a lunch break or two and recorded the initial audio over a weekend.
Visually this episode far exceeds my previous work. In total I drew, scanned and colored nearly 200 pictures for "Hot Dogs", including my first frame-by-frame animations as well as some artwork done entirely on the computer.
There were a few snags along the way. During the creation of part 1 my computer died. I ordered parts from Newegg and went through a difficult and frustrating process trying to piece my new PC together. This was complicated by the fact that the first CPU and power supply I was shipped were DOA. Eventually I got the computer running and then spent the next week playing Bioshock (great game if you haven't played it)
A short time later I scrapped and restarted the first half. Which wasn't too bad as the new version is funnier. Then later, due to time constraints I was forced to drop a couple scenes from part 2.
