Starship Goldfish Ep.2 - Classic Ghostworth (Animatic)

Author Comments

NB: An animatic (animated storyboard)! We used this to raise the funding that went on to become our 2nd episode, and later our pilot

A direct sequel to our pilot, somehow made in 2013. It even refers to the pilot's plot! Includes the show's former title, 'Sam Sweetmilk', and stars Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean, Supernatural) as Ghostworth.

Next episode is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNCjKcxZSME

'When Sam - adventurer, sociopath, captain of the starship Goldfish - is sent on an important, entirely-made-up mission to retrieve a fictional jewel from a distant asteroid, he bravely takes on his dubious task in true heroic style - by endangering the life of his robot first mate, and only friend, Ghostworth.'

This animatic is great! I love the plot of the whole thing - I neither expected Ghostworth to die nor expected him to get resurrected. If you could reupload this fully animated, it'd be even better! Awesome as always for Starship Goldfish.

With the episodes already finished it feels a bit strange watching these pilots, just to watch it all again (I hope) soon... yet for a pilot it was all unexpectedly clear and entertaining anyway. Sharp outlines, frequent movement and good voices, and even some color amidst the sketches! Going to be interesting watching the real thing after this...


I love the art style of this animation. The voice acting is really good. I would love to see more of a series like this flooding Newgrounds.

best animation and story ever!
I love the sci-fi story and the characters...
Good job! =D

Pretty good stuff. Would have fived for smoother animation. Some scenes are absolutely gorgeous. VA work is great too.
