CLASSICO IS UP!


Boy am I proud that I got to production assist/coordinate on this cartoon!

It was amazing watching a John K. project from start to finish. In basically two and a half months this 1-minute burst of cartoon energy was conceived, produced and realized.




And look at all these fine folks I got to work with !
(some directly, some indirectly...)

John K.
Eddie Fitzgerald
Nick Cross
Jay Li
Rex Hackelberg
Marlo Meekins
Chad Coyle
Eric Bauza
COPERNICUS (Juan Cruz, Murray Bain, Andrew Holland and more...)
Kristen McCormick
Pringle
Steve Worth & The ASIFA Archive
Kali Fonteccio
Chris Cannati

(Did I miss anyone?)

This music video has practically everything I want in a cartoon:

funny animals...



funny mouths...





funny actions...



musical timing....




beautiful background paintings...




bounce cycles...



and, of course, ducks...

I really wish this animation was longer. We need a whole movie like this! I've been trying to find some of those fantastic expressions in the film by freeze framing.

Hi GagaMan(n) - yeah, I agree! - a whole movie of cartoony animation would be awesome. It's difficult to freeze frame through this online version - hopefully it will be out on DVD soon so you can really see it in high rez.

Yay!!! Awesome work, Marc! You should be really proud of being part of that, the video is amazing :)

I think the duck character is my favorite creature in the video!

Hi Ryan - thanks! It was a real honor working on this project - I learned a tremendous amount.

Thanks Sean! Everything you need in a cartoon in under 60 seconds - sounds like a contest!

Hey thanks Brett! Haha, the duck is one of my favorites too - there are actually lots of funny creatures that didn't even make it into the video, maybe I can post some of those in the future...

Oh yeah!! You totally should, that'd be neat :)

Great video, you should be proud :)
