WTTW 104 Wendell scenes

From “Welcome to the Wayne” S01e04, air date: July 27, 2017 (Nickelodeon, USA) These are the first scenes I animated of Wendell. The character I’ve come to specialize in. He is voiced by the naturally funny Dana Snyder, a.k.a Master Shake on “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”. To have this much personality and entertainment in a voice track is an animator’s dream. For his mannerisms I took inspiration from the legendary comedian Jackie Mason. Our effects supervisor Jennifer Duczmal animated the blue slime.

Olly's Hovercraft from "Welcome to the Wayne"

From “Welcome to the Wayne” s01e03, air date: July 26, 2017 (Nickelodeon, USA)

 I completed the animation on this segment about a year ago. It’s a Flash symbol and hand drawn animation hybrid. My supervisor was Tom Jolliffe. Effects by the Yowza! effects team, I believe this segment was by Shannon Penner. Compositing by Jack Carr. My good friend Bart Sarmazian helped with layering and secondary animation in the early scenes. Qi Zhang gave some great pointers that really helped me push the scene before last. The storyboards by Chris Land were a pleasure to work from. I don’t know who did the layouts and BG paint for this segment, but the Yowza! BG and layout crew brought this show to another level.
