“Has the Scooby-Doo writing been getting weirder lately, or have I just not noticed it until now?”

Ted the Animator: “Uh… give me an example.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, take this scene, for example. The purple vampire one–”

Ted the Animator: “Sibella.”

Carl the Animator: “–makes a really terrible, clunky vampire pun with ‘bite,’ or something….”

Ted the Animator: “Eh, that seems pretty normal Scooby-Doo to me.”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah, but then the camera zooms in, and holds on a shot of her fang, sparkling there. Y’know, just for the off chance that someone in the audience somehow didn’t manage to pick up the gratuitously-obvious vampire pun about vampire fangs.

Ted the Animator: “Fair ‘nuff.”

Carl the Animator: “And here, too. The purple vampire one–”

Ted the Animator: “Sibella.”

Carl the Animator: “–is talking to the blue ghosty one–”

Ted the Animator: “Phantasma.”

Carl the Animator: “–and she, a second time, makes the exact same joke with ‘fang-tastic’ she made earlier in the episode.”

Ted the Animator: “Scooby-Doo has always had bad puns, though.”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah, but not the exact same joke, twice, in under 3 minutes! C’mon, people, we’re not even 15 minutes in yet, are we already out of material?”

Ted the Animator: “Entirely possible.”

Carl the Animator: “Reading the script, it’s… hey, wait, they do the exact same thing here! The werewolf one–”

Ted the Animator: “Winnie.”

Carl the Animator: “–is talking to the mummy one–”

Ted the Animator: “…ok, I don’t remember her name either.”

Carl the Animator: “–and makes the same howling joke again! Is the audience expected to have forgotten that we already heard it mere minutes before?

Ted the Animator: *shrugs*

Carl the Animator: “I mean, think about it. A viewer could hear the joke, leave the room to make toast, and come back to hear it made a second time. Sad, really.”

Ted the Animator: “Wow. That’s a really effective way to put it, Carl.”

Carl the Animator: “I know, right? Toast-making is the best metric of time.”

German filmmaker Nicola Piovesan designed and made this awesome Cyber Octopus for a film project entitled… wait for it… Attack of the Cyber Octopuses!

“Attack of the Cyber Octopuses” is a retro-futuristic cyberpunk short film. The aim is to recreate the look and feel of the Eighties Sci-fi classics, without using CGI nor chroma key. Therefore it’ll be shot in real locations and use various original miniature models and handmade props.”

Click here for part 1 and here for part 2 to learn about how this cyber cephalopod was made.

Follow Attack of the Cyber Octopuses on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to keep up with the production of this awesomely intriguing film.

“Nice gramophone.”

Carl the Animator: “Thanks. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.”

Ted the Animator: “The blue tone really– wait… why’s the top of it levitating?”

Carl the Animator: “Huh? Oh, uh, well, since it’s in a spooky mansion, I thought it would probably be a haunted gramophone, so I–”

Ted the Animator: “You just forgot to draw anything to hold it up, didn’t you.”

Carl the Animator: “…yeah.”

he! is! finally!! done!!!

The last of my bois, in all his 3D glory: Neptune! I finished him 2 weeks ago, and I spent all of last week making and animating his weapon, and I’m very happy to finally show you all!

@sageayanna has dubbed Neptune’s weapon “Proteus” until further notice, and I like how fitting it is. c:

And thank you to my patrons, who got to view the WIPs of this project early!

Hi all! Coming out of the woodwork to say, I’m auditioning VOICE ACTORS for my 3rd year film! Open to anyone in the LA Area or Bay Area.

I feel like the Indian Accent is exotified and/or often played as a joke in Western media (ie. Raj from Big Bang Theory, Apu from the Simpsons.) It’s important to me to make a comedy where the characters’ accents are NOT the funny part. Therefore, I am ideally hoping to work with Indian actors on this project, especially 1st generation English speakers. However, casting isn’t limited to people of South Asian descent; anyone is open to audition, and you don’t need acting experience!

I would really appreciate sharing this post, as well as reaching out to any friends/family that might be interested, particularly in the South Asian community.

If interested, contact me at rheadadoo@alum.calarts.edu
