Horrendous Fiasco 2016

Horrendous Fiasco Cartoons has been in hiatus for quite some time.   Initially, a re-branding of Knock Knock Cartoons,  Horrendous has become an oddity.  It's website is a Flash site and will be taken down soon due to Flash's inability to play on mobile devices.  So where does Horrendous go when we have relaunched Knock Knock Cartoon's here in Ohio where it once thrived.

The overall plan for Horrendous is to make a more specialized branch of Knock Knock (it's parent company) and create a unique brand, not a full service animation studio, but a development company for more adult content.  Knock Knock will take over the full service aspect of most animation productions, but will distance itself from any adult or edgy content.  In this way, both brands become more defined and the purpose of each can then objectively and hopefully, successfully be promoted.

Horrendous will go through this transition in 2016 with a new website launched sometime in the Fall of 2016.  When to take down the current Flash site will be discussed soon with our web-development team...Thanks!

So Yes

The Kickstarter for Longhair and Doubledome failed to reach its goal, but that being said, it was not at all a bad experience nor is it the end.  I am committed to seeing this through whether on Kickstarter or Indiegogo. 

Longhair and Doubledome deserve at least a complete half hour of their antics.

Snow Angel update

Over the past few weeks, I have gotten a good deal of feedback on "Snow Angel" and will be in production of a new animatic in early July.  I would post it but then I would ruin the surprise.

Finished the initial animatic for "Snow Angel"

Snow Angel was initially a demo created by Dave Fedan for Knock Knock Cartoons, many years ago.  The beautiful background work be Dave inspired me to create a film, this film.  Here is one of the amazing backgrounds. Originally, planned as a 4X3 production, we are now setting up the files for an HD roll out.

Getting started on several fronts

Both Knock Knock Cartoons and Horrendous Fiasco is gearing up on several fronts.  IT is building content time and I have been busily creating storyboards, art, and working on animation projects to be released before the end of 2015.  It is really great to get going.

Settling in Columbus

Well, settling here, back in Ohio, has been a tad bumpy.  Had a studio space, don't have a studio space, have work, have too much work, have other stuff to do.  Would love to get to some of the projects on the docket, hope I will be able to get to something fun soon.

This is always the balance between making money and making progress, they do not always coincide.

Starting up Knock Knock Cartoons again

As many of you know, I was the head cheese at Knock Knock Cartoons back in the day, well Knock Knock is kicking the dirt off its coffin and coming back to life for another stint in animation production land.  Horrendous Fiasco will still be around, but it will be changing into Knock Knock's development arm.  Check out Knock Knock's new website at knockknock2ns.com and it's blog at knockknockcartoons.blogspot.com

Jimmy's back

Jimmy's World of Hurt is a project I started with Max Cannon (of Red Meat fame) years ago.  I have recently decided that it is again worth pursuing and am busy whacking out the character designs for the Flash production.  Here is where we are at.
