I registered a new domain name for this new project of mine–an animated Internet series, www.primordialcartoons.com.
Here’s the character sheet/sketch of the main protagonists of the animated Internet series I’m going to begin to make come July 2019. I decided to draw how the characters would look like today, that’s if, if I’m not going to revise their look. Their names are Death and Loriz. In my 36 years of living (I’m currently 36) I haven’t seen a cartoon series which Death is the main protagonist so this is what I’m going to make. If there is, I’m just not aware of it. I’m a silly old fart who still loves comics and cartoons. I am proud to be a geek, nerd, dork or whatever you guys wanna call it even before being like those I’ve mentioned weren’t considered “cool” a few decades ago, unlike nowadays.
I’m doing this because a really wealthy person (producer) is willing to invest on me–on my work and wants me to produce a cartoon series which will be shown in Cartoon Network Asia. The guy I’m talking about is a member of Filipino Mafia and is a good friend of mine and I am truly grateful to him.
I’m going to animate this animated Internet series using traditional methods and I’m going to render frame by frame using pencils and ink only. Guys, don’t expect me to produce like the works of sir Hayao Miyazaki, the screenwriting/film directing skills of sir Katsuhiro Otomo, sir Matt Groening, sir Pendleton Ward and countless other cartoonists which I am a fan of. But, I will try my best to make it funny and entertaining.
Once the big day arrives and I start doing this on Cartoon Network Asia, my role will just be a storyboard artist/director and content producer. I’m going to give them ideas to work on and I’m going to need a full production team for this–animators, in-betweeners, clean-up artists, colorists, background artists, voice actors/actresses etc.. Or, if it’s going to be done digitally, then I’m going to need digital animators/artists. This is the reason why I’m going to take a break making comics–to review my poor animation skills. Ha Ha. I’m going to base the tone of the animation for Cartoon Network Asia off of my online comics: www.killerkamotekomiks.com, which is what Cartoon Network Asia would like me to do.
The first episode will come out in July or August this year and then, the second episode will come out early next year, 2020. After I make the first episode, I’m going to take a hiatus and the same thing goes for the comics–I’ll take a break for a while but resume doing it sometime in the future. Starting next year, new episodes will come out every 3 months or so and each episode will last a minute or so.
Also, here’s the short intro animation for each episode. Special thanks to my “comics people” friends/acquiantances’ Chocnut_San (Jermaine Dayo) and alexguhits (Alex Sevilla) for helping me pick the background theme song for the intro animation which you can use from a royalty free music Youtube Channel, Audio Library.
