Roaches Animated Short

7 Feb



This year I’m working on an original short that I’ve based on my comic. It’s set in a World War One era world where bugs reign – in the Kingdom of The Roaches.

All animation is being done in Flash. Voice Over by Canadian actor Julian Mulock. AD and VO Direction by Tim Thomson.

Roach Wrestling Federation Title Match
The Crimson Millipede Versus The Royale Rumbler
Schmitt Roaches Webcomic
THE KING DOME, KOR – This Inter-Continental title match held Saturday afternoon and was set for one fall with winner take all. The undefeated myriapod, The Crimson Millipede, faced off against the Roach Wrestling Federation Inter-Continental Champion – The Royale Rumbler.

The hulking, red beast looked very formidable – coming into the fight with a 8-0 record. It truly seemed like the Millipede was going to beat whoever stood in it’s way into a green puddle of goo.

Yet, using his lightning speed and acrobatic agility, The Royal Rumbler descended from the roof of the King Dome and planted a steel chair into the maw of the hideous creature!

Disco Versus Rock

Rock ‘n Roll Roach Versus Disco Roach!
Why 1’s And 2’s Can’t Deal With 3’s And 4’s
Roaches by Paul Schmitt
As soon as the turntables and the Cold Play hits your favorite rock ‘n roll club – duck for cover. Things are about to take a sudden left turn.

Bars and clubs grow to a point where they book great regional and national acts that draw quality crowds. Alt-rock/punk/rock-a-billy road warriors drive in from all over the country to rock the house. A club at it’s peak is something to experience.

Then, all of the sudden, that stops. The next thing you know: one guy is spinning records, terrible dance pop records that pose the existential question: “Do you believe in life after love?” On Friday and Saturday night. At the same club. The one that had all the good rock bands for years…

So, what happened to your rock club? Instead of talking with a wide range of people from all over the country you end up with a identical crowd of the drunk Cher lovin’, Madonna boogeyin’ yuppie tool bags from the “right” side of town packed in 300 deep. 220 of them have their phones out at all times like Star Trek tricorders being used to carefully navigate a class M planet.

Your favorite rock club is now a very large phone booth (remember them?) that is playing bland Muzak. Just like that.

This new page concerns dead roaches and why they always end up belly up. Why is that? Does gravity effects cockroaches differently than it does people?

Please subscribe to this comic for more pages and looks ahead at the cartoon. As long as you kind folks are viewing and subscribing – I will be keep updating this blog with preview pages for the next edition of the Roaches title and more.

This 3d view of the Grand Roach clearly displays this bug’s superior intellect and lofty stature.

People, we have a production crew. I am very pleased to announce this and that the initial stages for animation production began this week. We have gained a new animator and are breaking ground on the film now.

Stay tuned to the blog for clips, tests and promos from this upcoming animated short film. You guys will only see this stuff here before it goes out to Facebook, Youtube and film fests.

Are you a 3d Animator with a strong character animation and texture mapping reel? We are always looking for more help with lip synch and modelers as well. Send your demo reels to the Project Coordinator by email.

Pride/Truth

20 Apr

Pride

Popular music, outside of the era it is created in, sounds terrible. Examples include: Bee Gees, Backstreet Boys, disco and techno to name a few.

Truthiness

Truthishly? We should just listen to whatever any one in a position of power and accept what they say without question.
