After a long summer of animating on a trippy, surreal, Adult Swim show, it finally premieres! The show is called "Dream Corp LLC" and is directed by Daniel Stessen and produced by Stephen Merchant and John Krasinski (from the British and US "The Office".)
I joined Artbelly Productions to do the rotoscoping/animating duties here in Austin. It was an intense project with just three of us doing the rotoscoping, but the end result is beautiful (and sometimes frightening!)
The show is half live action and half animation and follows a cast of wacky misfits that work at a dream analyzation lab. Patients visit the under-funded and seemingly forgotten lab in a bankrupt strip mall and meet Dr. Roberts (played by Jon Gries.... who was Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite!). Dr. Roberts and his crew solve the patients' hang-ups and mental disturbances by entering the patients' dreams through a sketchy device placed on the head. Each week a new patient enters the lab.... some leave and some don't.
