Animating for Comedy Central's Trip Tank

2013-09-01 17:51:25 by Chimbley

Hey guys!

I would like to start off my apologizing. Its been almost 2 years since I've posted any cartoons. Its pretty pathetic. I hate neglecting this site because its my absolute favorite. School has been demanding since I declared computer science as my major. All the free time I usually have is spent sleeping, eating and pooping. But this isn't a pity party so don'at cry for me Argentina.

A few months ago I was approached by some nice fellows at Shadow Machine, a film and television production company producing a new show on Comedy Central called Trip Tank, which is set to premier this coming fall. Trip Tank will be an animated sketch show with many different short bits animated in different styles (similar to MTV's Liquid Television). They were interested in having me pitch some ideas as well as voice and animate! I just finished my first piece for them and I'm in the process of filling out all the necessary paperwork.

I've been so busy communicating with the producers, writing scripts, making storyboards, drawing animatics, voicing and animating. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'm so very excited :) The only thing that makes me sad is that this only makes me neglect newgrounds even more. Newgrounds is a home to me. I love it very much and everyone here has taken great care of me. Before this whole thing with comedy central I had been in a little but of a rut with animation. I was becoming a little bored with it but I've have been rejuvenated! I am going to be working a lot on pieces for this new show, but I have so many ideas and halfway done cartoons that I want to put on newgrounds!

I love you guys. I wish I could just cuddle with you all. Stay gold

Another Trip Tanker, their sure are a lot of you.

(Updated ) Chimbley responds:

Of course! There are many talented people on this site. I feel so lucky to be involved, although there are people contributing to Newgrounds that deserve it way more than I do.
