After a year and a half, Nickelodeon finally gave the go-ahead for my pilot to get animated. Other than a long wait, the process has been really smooth and positive! Having the extra time let me figure out a lot of good stuff about the characters. It's hard to know exactly who they are until you start playing with them. They have a pretty different dynamic than the characters on Chowder.
This is the exciting part of the process. It's all potential. I'm finishing board revisions and casting voices. Next step will be to assemble all the production art, then ship it to the animation studio. By January we should have a fully functioning 11-minute pilot!
Here's a sneak peek at the art.
