A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.
My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.
"Plague! We are in the middle of a fucking plague! And you behave like this!"
I saw an excellent documentary on the fight against AIDS called How to Survive a Plague. This clip is probably is the most powerful part of the film, where Larry Kramer goes on a rant after an ACT-UP meeting devolves into pointless bickering. I think it speaks for itself.
Some prototype Kill la Kill designs from the Making of video. The idea of the Kamui being so revealing and the sister relationship for Ryuuko and Satsuki part of the story from the beginning. Nui’s design sure changed a lot, tho.
It seems that Sushio had the characters look more natural at first and then made them look more stylized to suit Imashi’s direction.
I hope this film gets an official English dub just so I can hear Chris Sabat sing about bingo!
Commissioned by me and drawn by Betsy.
In case you are wondering, this is in fact Edmund from Don Bluth’s “Rock-a-Doodle”. This was more for Betsy than for me since she loves his design and used to draw him all the time when she was young.
However, we both agree that the film is a mess. One of those problems is Edmund himself. Not only is the child actor playing him terrible, the whole live action/animation integration and going into the book is confusing and pointless. Also, the whole “I’m not a cat, I’m a boy” plot point doesn’t work when the animals are anthropomorphic and there are not any humans around so comments like “Cats don’t go to school” just come off as perplexing.
As such, I asked Betsy to put Edmund in more normal clothes as opposed to that makeshift Davy Crockett outfit. The idea is that this is how Edmund would have looked if already existed in Chanticleer’s world as a cat. I think that could have worked in the film’s favor. Besides, doesn’t he look cute in overalls?
Ryuko & Mako
I ship them and I am not even a Yuri fan.
Here is some CATS fanart commissioned for me and drawn by Betsy. Grizabella is singing “Memory” on the left and Mr. Mistoffelees is putting on a magic show on the right.
I prefer the characters of CATS to look more feline-like rather than directly translating the costumes to the drawing board.
