DAYUM!!- Transfatty Lives


Several months ago one of my mentors Patrick Sean O Brien from my earlier days of my career released his Autobiography about his life after being diagnosed with ALS from its beginning stages to his current status. It’s a Jarring film but totally expected from Patrick who is a film maker through and through. I have been meaning to write this forward several times but have always been side tracked by work and my own life.

Patrick from the days, when I was fortunate to have worked with him was a total insanely creative film maker pushing all sorts of ideas and methods, he did many things which I thought to be WTF’s but he was always on point with what the audience at the time deemed edgy and also the producers who were willing to green light such said project. Aside from that he was not afraid to do films based on whatever the subject matter. I recall him explaining the three breasted DJ skit which I was commissioned to create the interactive website which would coincide with his DVD reel of something he called the Body of Transfatty another master plan which he explains in his feature.

The film is a wonderful adventure which I recommend to people who may have difficulty understanding the effects of ALS. Currently the video is available on multiple VOD site such as netflix, google play and probably apple-tv.

DAYUM!!–Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot Official Trailer


So CannonBusters which seems synonymous to GunBuster a classic animation series but no relation dropped early this month which would be July 8th 2016. It was an amazing short by the Cannon Buster team – Lesean Thomas, Thomas Romain and the whole Satellite gang along with any other partner company and Artist that too part.
The music and animation blended beautifully, it had a vibe that simply screamed I wanted this damn animation made into a series.

Getting to the meat I am very elated that I supported the kickstarter. Was it what I expected and more? In actuality, I was unsure what to expect as I was not sure if the creator was aiming to follow what he started in comic which I also own. The comic as I briefly recall was most definitely a different take thus far but I am excited to see where they may go with this slight shift, again I am unsure if that was the original course, the creator can do whatever he feels. As for the look and feel this was a vibrant setting, not much is shown in terms of scale as this simply was the opening pilot or half a pilot as I would assume as it was only 15 minutes. Here is to hoping that this publicity affords them the greenlight to secure funding, as it does cost a great deal to produce this level of animation. If possible I would hope it was picked up by netflix as I have a love for how netflix works, then again this feeling is from a consumers point of view and not as a creator. Overall I would hope that the creators are benefiting from such a union.
