Animation is Complete!

Pops caught in the act
Yup! All scenes are now approved and going through the magical compositing stage. As soon as we're done compositing the shots we'll send it over to the musician to add original music and the sounds efx will be tackled here in house. Our aim is to get this whole thing in the can around the 1st week of February. Can't wait to share it with you all and I'll keep you posted on the final stages of Rednecks in Space.

Old Redneck Designs


I made this poster for a pitch back in 2004. As you can see I changed the title to The Simpleton's for a more pleasant/ less offensive title. I felt I betrayed the characters and strayed from my original vision so afterwards I scratched The Simpleton's and changed it back to Rednecks in Space, but that of coarse was after I was rejected. Ha!
These two turnarounds I did back in 2003 of Billy & Elvis. As you can see Billy has a more sexy slim physique, his beer belly is just starting to blossom. Elvis's pompadour is in it's infancy stage.

The year 2000, damn 7 yrs ago! Oh well here's the first designs of Rednecks (dot-com boom).
They were conceived in a small coffee shop in Santa Monica just off the 3rd St. Promenade. They were created with the intentions making web shorts, but with lack of story it never saw the light of day so it was shelved for several years. It would take about two years to dust 'em off, redevelop them with distinctive personalities and think of a real world that they could reek havoc in, but that was just the beginning... I hope you guys dig the early stuff as well as the new and I hope to bring you the final Rednecks in Space short to you early as February. Thanx again for your support fellas!!!
