Slushing Blog

Morgan Miller has been sharing some clips and tests from his film in progress.

The most recent animation test features a well-cast "celebrity" voice (I'm not sure if he wants the artist publicly named).

He recently started a production blog.

The art and tone remind me a bit of my ol' pal Greg Fiering's work.

Morgan's art -especially the backgrounds -are decidedly more sophisticated.   But there's a definite kinship.

As you've probably heard, MTV is reviving "Beavis and Butthead".  Nothing against those two, and I think Mike Judge is a remarkable talent, but the world would have been better to develop Morgan's universe to a series format.  Like "Beavis",  it's a well rounded world with ridiculous characters who are close enough to reality to be unsettling.
