The pilot for Lloyd the Rock'n Unicorn premiered at Channel 101, and was well received. Along with working on completing the second episode, I'm shopping the show around to a couple different outlets and seeing what comes of it. So I was pretty thrilled to find out that Lloyd made it on to Cold Hard Flash. http://coldhardflash.com/2012/04/lloyd-the-rockn-unicorn-screens-at-channel-101.html Pretty damn cool! Now if I can just convince someone out there to give me a little budget to make a bunch more episodes....

So last night we recorded the dialogue for the second episode of Lloyd the Rock'n Unicorn. This time I put together a 4x7 ft. PVC pipe frame so we could clamp blankets onto it for a quick sound booth. It worked out really well, (Even though it was a little wobbly. I'll fix that soon.) Now onto cutting the dialogue and creating the animatic.

So I'm moving forward on creating a short pilot for Lloyd the Rock'n Unicorn, and to help keep things moving smoothly when I really get into production, I'm making a library of basic actions for each of the main characters in the show. I'll be doing the animation on my own, so I want to have as much of the basic stuff taken care of ahead of time, so when unique animation is needed for a scene, I will have more time to focus on just that. On top of creating libraries of animation, I'm also working on a look for the show, so I've applied some compositing tricks to the animation in post.
