Chance Raspberry's 'XTALK'

Postby Charles » Thu Apr 17, 2014 12:56 pm

A few years ago in 2011 good friend and AN stalwart Chance Raspberry of "The Simpsons" and "Little Billy" fame worked with a colleague to produce a Flash animated concept pilot entitled "XTALK".

The idea involved an original, animated web-series starring three unlikely friends who've never met in person but are united online by the power of XBox Live. In the pilot episode, the gang finds themselves mired deep in a parody of the "Double Rainbow" video from YouTube. The numerous products you see in the settings are part of a product placement campaign which the XTALK creators used to entice sponsors.

This is the first time the video's been featured publicly. Chance co-developed and designed the project and animated it singlehandedly...
