I figured since quite a few of us liked the FNAF Don Bluth inspired pictures, it'd be prudent to post this indiegogo project for a Dragon's Lair Returns Pitch Presentation. So far it's $45k away from it's initial goal.

I thought this was on Kickstarter before.

Yeah, that's super duper skeevy. Sounds like Bluth's looking for a payday, and when no movie materializes he can blame it on "the studio fat cats with no soul or imagination".

Studios aren't interested in traditional animation projects. 3D or go home.

ID: d28a3  No.1145


Studios are interested in anything that will make them money.

It's just harder to make money with traditional animation. Bluth would have to show them cost and profit projections, not a cinematic, and cost and profit projections don't cost a quarter of a million dollars.

ID: 8e508  No.1146


So he tried it previously on kickstarter? Interesting.


If this were aimed at a modern crowd perhaps, but this is a nostalgia project. That is it's own bank breaker, depending on the franchise.


I'm not too informed on the inner workings of a pitch project, but I think the real question that has to be asked is if traditional animation is cost effective compared to more modern means of animation. I highly doubt he's going to hire a korean studio sweatshop to do the hard labor either.

ID: d7d92  No.1147


It depends on what he's going for. If he's pushing a traditional, hand drawn project, he's going to find few ears listening no matter how much money he puts into a pitch. The major studios have shutdown their traditional animation operations.

Everything is at least digital now.

Now if he's just going for a traditional style, but rendered on computers, he's got a much better shot at appealing to some of the studios.

That's just the nuts and bolts of the movie. Content wise, how willing are studios going to be to take on Dragon's Lair subject matter in the current cultural climate?

Part 2 of The Intruder will begin airing on Toonami this Saturday night, and will air each Saturday thereafter through December 19. Each episode will run 3-4 minutes, and there will be 7 episodes in all, for around half an hour of animation. There may also be some kind of tie-in contest, like last time.

If you need a refresher on the original Intruder, you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkxlE07NWFs

so far liking the whole thing about the intruder, specially how its using the OLD first TOM body as part of itself (which explains why SARA felt she know it before as its probably utilizing the old TOM systems in it)

Is it sad that I learned about this series from a pornographic image of a lopunny getting screwed by a trainer who looks like Saitama?

I mean, bald men don't harness much differing features other than caricature and jaw shape but damn it's almost uncanny.

I just started watching it yesterday, and am now eagerly awaiting new episodes. Saitama's stupid "serious time" face always gets me.

Also, place your bets now: are we going to get a Name Drop or Anticipated Name Drop But Then They End Up Calling Him Something Else?

You mean, are they actually gonna call him One Punch Man?

Not if they stay true to the manga.

Especially since he seems to have this reality denial field surrounding him, and like 4 people actually acknowledge how absurdly strong he is, the rest outright deny reality and make up bullshit to explain it away.

The Danger Mouse reboot has started this week, running daily at 6pm UK time on CBBC, available to Britbongs with iPlayer or enterprising foreigners with internet access.

I thought it wasn't too bad, a promising start to the new series. They're riding on a wave of nostalgia with some pretty big boots to fill, so I'm hoping they can take off and make it their own.

There was a teaser video around somewhere highlighting some of the upcoming guest voices, including John Oliver and BRIAN BLESSED. It looks like Count Duckula will also make an appearance in the series.

While Jeopardy Mouse (who has yet to make an appearance) seems too much of a Action-Grrl-Mary-Sue for /co/'s taste, Professor Squawkencluck is the front runner for Series Waifu.

>seems too much of a Action-Grrl-Mary-Sue for /co/'s taste

They are overreacting, though lately it hasn't been uncommon, what with a lot of comics nowadays trying to pander to feminists (Wonder Woman actually saying "mansplaining" in one issue, several issues of she-Thor blatantly brown-nosing feminists, and new Captain Marvel being set in a military-esque, women-only utopia and main cast being a bunch of diverse women), and several occurences of SJWs making their presence known on /co/. S'what you get when m00t brought a bunch of them to be 4chan admins and mods.

ID: 7b2d4  No.1036


Yeah, kinda hoping that at least one of the positive changes of the new ownership is that the SJW mods are shown the door.

Jeopardy has two episodes so far; in her first appearance, she doesn't dominate the story as others have feared, but she's pretty much the no-nonsense straight-(wo)man for DM to play off. Naturally, she starts to loosen up by the end of the episode.

I'm a few episodes behind and playing catch-up, but thankfully iPlayer has a Series Record function so I don't have to forget about missing anything. Must get around to drawing Squawkencluck at some point.

Tress MacNeille leaves a message.

Also they added a Crewmember bundle which I wouldn't mind picking up, but I've already opted for a higher-level pledge. I hope they can work it like Wakfu did and arrange to pay a little extra for an add-on instead of having to make another account to place another pledge.

3 days left and only nearing $120k.

I wonder if Rocko's Modern Life would of fared better in this day's age were it to get it's own kickstarter.

Well, there it is. Now, of course, comes the longer wait to see if they make good on their promises.

Probably both. The show's been around since the 80s, so inevitably it has new viewers, all starting at different periods of the show's existence.

The series has been approved because of the success of the two movies, apparently well above expectations.

It's a very simple anime and really easily accessible to people of all ages. And I mean..Who doesn't like a little old school good guy beats up bad guy action, especially in anime today when everything seems to have to be mind fuckery?

>Who doesn't like a little old school good guy beats up bad guy action

See >>680 these kinds of otakus; mostly shut-ins in Japan who have no social interactions with normal people so they close themselves off into their tiny little homes watching animes about real life, except that this "real life" is sprinkled with wacky, zany or erotic stuff the otakus are most drawn to so that they will buy the DVDs, dakimakuras and other merchandise. Unfortunately, these otakus also tend to happen to have pretty deep pockets so of course the market will cater to their demands.

Old school animes like Dragon Ball Z, Saint Seiya, Sailor Moon etc. are kept on life support mostly by older fans and even that sometimes isn't enough, and once they're gone….

ID: e2e2b  No.686

Those same otakus went and saw the DBZ movies that recently came out in very high numbers which is why I mentioned that. Dragonball remains a highly popular product in Japan even if it has waned greatly in the west.

Hell, even in the press release regarding naming the series "Super" they say that they used that word to describe so much of the merchandise and things associated with Dragonball, why not stick it on the title? lol

ID: 93dbd  No.826

I watched Battle of Gods from the standpoint of someone who still has warm fuzzies for DBZ, but has realized it has some very deep flaws, which transitioned to shonen culture in general, and said culture is only just beginning to set them aside.

Coming from that standpoint, Battle of Gods is a surprisingly good movie, that does some very interesting things with some of the very tropes it helped cement. It's high-quality in general, and manages to give all its characters a lot of personality, including the antagonists. I'm honestly not surprised it did well, and if Resurrection of F is similarly good, I'm not surprised they greenlit a sequel series either.

With the first half of Stardust Crusaders done, they took a break for the rest of the year. The second half is on it's way either in January or Febuary.

This is the part where the team finally gets Iggy, the asshole boston terrier, added to the roster. And now we've got a preview.

I also highly appreciate how Iggy's design is a mixture of his first appearance and his last appearances. I never thought it'd work, but I'm glad I was proven wrong.
