'Two-Headed Cop' begins production
Written by Charles   
Monday, 18 June 2012 18:38

Production has begun on Two-Headed Cop, an animated short film co-created by animation industry vets Derek Friesenborg and Brian Ormiston. The independently financed project, written and directed by Friesenborg, is being produced through a partnership with online animation studio AnimationRigs.com.

Two-Headed Cop follows the gritty story of Ray and Ray as they battle crime and occasionally each other to upend Fat City’s criminal element. Framed for an assault on the town’s most beloved entertainer, Two-Headed Cop becomes a fugitive from the law. To clear their name, they must descend into the seedy underbelly of Fat City on a journey into the dark, tilted world of carnies, goons, grifters, pet markets, fine haberdashery... and a mysterious figure from out of their past.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse in 'Runaway Brain' - 1995

I never got around to seeing this when it was initially released. I watched the film for the first time a few minutes ago. Had no idea just how good the production quality of 'Runaway Brain' was until I saw it for myself just now.

Directed by Chris Bailey whom I've had the pleasure of working with before, did a superb job on this Oscar nominated short. Andreas Deja is credited with the animation along with Dan Cooper on backgrounds and several other great talents. Another surprise, it was produced in Paris, France when the Disney Company had a studio operating there.

Unfortunately, the names of the French crew are not included in the credits, which is a shame. Never the less, a wonderful job on a magnificent film created at the height of the animation boom of the Second Golden Age in 1995. If you've never seen it now's your chance. If you have enjoy it again. Here's the Forum topic.

One successful Internet cartoon after another is showing up. This one is episode seven of 'Pubertina' on Shut Up! Cartoons. It went online June 13, 2012, only three days ago, and already it has 275,892 YouTube views in that time as of this writing.

Best of all it's created by Emily Brundige. She was at my school The Animation Academy in Burbank prior to heading to CalArts. Yet another acclaimed Animation Academy / CalArts student making their mark. Pubertina is about a girl entering adolescence. Emily does a great job capturing this odd time in life in her quirky cartoon. More episodes and content dealing with Pubertina will be showcased in the Forum topic.
