America’s Pop Star Penalty Round

The friendly creatures of Snuff Mountain, Tennessee decided not to be left off the reality TV bandwagon.  Never mind that the wagon was never going to pull over and let them on.  Is it the most humble expression of pop culture you’ve ever seen, or an apt metaphor for our time?

All the art started as pencil illustration.  The animation was spline based, made with Anime Studio Pro.  The audio was produced in-house, using studio built foley props and echo chamber.  It’s all very straightforward.  I looked at a lot of old Termite Terrace shot layouts, and staged these shots with that attitude of ‘getting it done’.
