Starship Goldfish Ep.3 - New Ghostworth (Animatic)

Author Comments

NB: An animatic (animated storyboard)! We used this to raise the funding that went on to become 'Starship Goldfish', which is the first thing we released to Newgrounds. Made in 2015, this stars Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean, Supernatural) as Ghostworth.

'Yesterday Sam — high-functioning sociopath, captain of the Starship Goldfish, possibly the last human — sent his entire crew to an untimely and avoidable death. His entire crew, a robot named Ghostworth, was then re-uploaded into a new body/existential crisis. He was then forced to kill his old self, back for revenge. Now, with Ghostworth holed up in a catatonic mental K-hole, our captain has errands to run. Namely a list titled, 'Ten Super-Fun Things Ghostworth Never Let Me Do'.

Damn, Sam is a dick. and a jerk.

Do hope this one makes it past the animatic status too! As fun as these are like this I can't wait to see them in their final form, at their best; as they're meant to be enjoyed. The little glimpses of finished work amidst the sketches put the rest to shame; leave you wanting more! Voice and script is great as ever though, with existential questioning and depth in good contrast to the shallowness of that main character captain... though it seems he may not be that shallow after all. Looking forward to the real thing!


I only found Starship Goldfish recently, not even a few days ago, so when I first saw it I thought "Oh man! Not another lonely pilot that didn't go anywhere!". I find myself absolutely delighted to see that the project is still progressing! Best of luck in everything you guys do, for real!

I love everything about this! Even in animatic form it shows just how much work you guys have put into this. Can't wait to see how far the Starship Goldfish soars!
