Hey guys! Since our Clarence short “Beans” is going around again, I wanted to post the original animatic we made to send to the Seoul studio!
When the Clarence team approached us to write and board a short for Clarence, both Alex and I were obviously elated. Clarence is my favorite toon on teevee, and working with the team before was so wonderful, we were happy to return. It was a total treat to get to come up with a fun scenario and dialogue for some of my favorite characters.
Because Alex and myself are animators, we took it a step farther then needed and keyframed the entire short. We had a blast doing it, and it was interesting to see what bits were changed by the other animators for the final.
Above you can check out the animatic we made, including terrible scratch audio by Alex and myself. Please also check out the finished show below!! Thanks so much guys!

This is a (super SUPER I AM SO SORRY) late birthday present for @iwachann. I’ve always thought Tendou actually plays on the same college team, too. And when Semi comes to visit, he never misses a chance to make out with him in the equipment room after practice. The team manager, Clarence, has the worst luck in the world and keeps finding his players in compromising positions.
Kat, I hope this fulfills your several requests of tensemi+intense+clarence, hehehe. Thank you for being a wonderful friend and also for being responsible for Clarence’s creation. He now has a special place in my heart!

it was a dark time. a time when I kept a collection of my stray hairs taped to my bathroom counter. a time when I ran down the street chasing garbage trucks. yes, it was a very dark time. but what a time to be alive.
