It’s not very often I get excited about “anything”…you can ask my family. When the show “Heroes” was cancelled a couple years back, I thought it’d be a while before something else came along to replace it in my psyche and make good on Hollywood’s broken promise of being an “Entertainment” industry.
But all that changed when “The Walking Dead” came along. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I’d never heard of the graphic novel or comics. My first exposure to this franchise, like so many others was through the TV show. But since the show debuted, I have been caught up in the whirlwind that makes up this franchise. I may not be the biggest “fanboy” of the show, but it certainly got me interested in renewing interest in…well…my “interests”.
Since I was recently given “The Walking Papers” from my last place of employment, for doing nothing more than “Not Taking it Up the Pooper” on a consistent basis (that’s “officially” what it said on my pink slip) I have decided to beef up my portfolio and get back to doing what it is that I do well…Write and Entertain.
Though, “this” work may seem amateurish to some (okay…”most”) it was indeed a “Labor of Love” that my wife allowed me to work on for 3 weeks…I’d like to thank my wife and kids for letting me do it. Being up against the finale of the show, I was a little pressed for time and would have much rather created the episode entirely in “Flash”…but I’m still “learning”. I am actually in the midst of teaching myself 3-D animation, rather than concentrating so much on 2-D.
As those of you, who have followed me for any amount of time may know. I used to be a Toy Designer. Well…I’ve been sitting on some pretty “nifty” ideas for nearly 12 years and have watched while things in the industry have dramatically changed during that time. As a result, with my newly-found “free-time”, I am finding myself playing a little “catch-up”.
But rest-assured, you WILL be seeing more of me in the very near future. The “ideas” that I came up with nearly a decade ago, will “still” translate today…they are that “good”….Again, that may not be proven conclusively by watching the video below. But it was losing a “Dead-End Job” and “The Walking Dead” that sparked something in me to press on…and get “my” stuff out there.
I hope you enjoy it…It’s a “parody”…but, I also found it to be rewarding to just “write” again…If it’s too “long” for you?…try sitting through a “Full House” marathon at my place sometime.
…’Til Then…Go Figg’r!
