In late October of 2007, my friend Dustin Bocks called me up asking me if I'd be interested in working on a pilot. The show is called Kiko and it's based off a children's book Rhombus Creative, the company Dustin works for, has published and intends to make into a series.
I said yes and pulled together a team of five, Ashley Burke, Eric Cerda, Pierre Cerrato, and Mike Macnerald. We started producing the pilot the very end of December. I was the animation director, while Dustin directed us from California. Eric and I animated the characters in Flash and created the digital set-up. Ashley and Mike created the backgrounds. Ashley and Pierre did all of the compositing, while Pierre did final composite and edit. We worked off of Dustin's animatics and character designs he created off the book. We had it completed in just over a month. It was a fun project to work on and I think it came out great! You can check it out on at this site:
Dustin and another guy even created a cute little game working off of run/fly cycles Eric and I did, and they used Mike Mac's bgs, making a 3D environment.
It's already being discussed to be made into a series. Check it out and enjoy.
