The Body Count

A mad scientist invents a chicken cannon and goes on a rampage.

The Body Count was made as part of an assignment for my animation course at uni. The assignment was to create and pitch an animated TV show.

Check out the video version with more 3D at TheBodyCount.net



This was spot on great humor at it best!
Everything is a perfect 10 as far as I'm concerned, great job!
Definitely make a series out of this one, I think you've got a winner on your hands!

it never sat well just doing one todd sketch and putting him aside, it was only a matter of time before he bubbled to the surface again

Move over Ron Burgundy, Todd McSween is here :D

I found this clip to be quite a hilarious addition to Newgrounds. Unlike so many other pieces that recycle the same jokes over and over again, you created something that took great pains in making sure it wasn't just "same-old, same-old".

Only wish you'd gotten more than Daily Third. This piece is far more deserving.

Good, (just like all your other stuff)

However I did notice one small inconsistency, Todd did say that five hens were injured but Fitzgerald fired off ten shots.

ha ha yes that is true, "five cornish chickens" just had a ring to it but really it should be "23 cornish chickens" or some other high number that implies he fires the cannon a lot.

It's been a while since I saw something this good

When I give 10s to submissions, they're usually either be enjoyable spam or a submission that actually deserves it. This is by far the latter. Whenever someone is able to actually make something that uses creative humor with well planned timing and classic delivery, it usually ends up being an all-time favorite of mine. Especially when mixed with squeaky clean animation, hilarious visual gags, and well thought out camera angles, it makes the overall product flow so much more smoothly. Not to mention you're voice was just perfect for the personality for the snazzy, full of himself anchorman.

You're probably one of the few artists on NG who makes sure that their animation can leave an impression on the viewer (well, the type of viewer that doesn't only care about video game parodies, anyway) without the use of common jokes you find on the site. And if you do end up using them, you mix it up in a way one hasn't seen it before. That, along with the fact that you manage to make your animation fluid and detailed at the same time only adds to your amazing talent. All I can say is that if this goes ignored, it would be a huge, HUGE shame.
