PART 1: DYNAMITE! STORYBOARDS...

HAPPY 2009 EVERYBODY! Hope you all had happy, healthy, holidays.

I recently collected a few storyboard pages from the recently failed DYNAMITE JONES! pitch. I'll put up a few sequences so you can get an idea of the tone of the proposed show.

The two pages below are at the top of the story. Dynamite runs a "Hire a Hero" shop, as you can see, not-just delegated to bodyguard work or fighting bad guys...


...it was at THIS point (5 pages in), it was suggested I should have continued to pursue this storyline, that of having Dynamite service, er, the old lady's gutters--and not, as was previously decided, outlined and revised 3 times, follow the original plan of driving his son to the "Long Hall of Supers" for his first day on the "Super League of Supers"...which I had done...for about 300 more subsequent storyboard pages later. And not well-executed or funny storyboarded pages either! Ugh.

...and looking back, pursuing that tangent definitely would've made for a funnier cartoon. No question. I'd like to do that short someday.

At this point of the opening, I wanted to showcase Dynamite's only power--his "chain-breaking-strength", along with his soft-spot for helping those in need as well as illuminating his popularity of 30+ years ago; demonstrated here by busting open his large book of i.o.u.'s...

How much more can you show? It's pretty funny so far! Would love to see more.

Haaa! I love the faces the old lady makes when she touches his muscle and the one where she's clapping.

I wanna see more! I wanna see more! I wanna see more!

Haha! "Are they evil leaves?" great line. yeah my heart goes out to you as I pitched and failed as well. I even did a board too. It would've been nice if they told us what they were looking for before we did an entire storyboard dontcha think? :-/

You can see my board here if you like (if not, then whatever you do DON'T click this link!):

Mike Milo! Ha! Now I've got your blog info...

Oh, and yeah--bummer all around. But AT LEAST they told me no THAT DAY! Seriously, I felt "happy", if you can believe it, versus the years of feet dragging. BAM! The very next day I was onto another path. AND I liked having Craig and Rob tell me. If they something didn't work, it didn't. But yeah, it still would've been nice.

That being said--what I DID do fell Olive Oil flat. Seriously, crickets chirping in the room, flat.

Well, I guess I better behave now on my blog... ;-)
Also, after 8 development deals that dragged on an average of 2 years per project yes, I agree that was a nice blessing, being told "no" right away.
I have also been shopping my idea around although sometimes I'm not quite sure why I subject myself to such pointlessness.

It's totally a different market, isn't it? Who would've thought being an artist in the animation industry puts you at a disadvantage when pitching a show!?

I'm learning SO much I love the idea too. Really the character that's this big butch man that's the mega kickass fella that everyone knows it, well in his toon world. Anyhow so far I'd want to stay up till all hour to see an episode for sure.
