Porky & Daffy’s Movie to Premiere at Annecy

The Day the Earth Blew Up is scheduled to premiere at the Annecy Animated Film Festival this June 11 at 11pm.

From the festival website:

Porky Pig and Daffy Duck star as unlikely heroes and Earth’s only hope when facing the threat of alien invasion. In this buddy-comedy of epic proportions, our heroes race to save the world, delivering all the laugh-out-loud gags and vibrant visuals that have made the Looney Tunes so iconic, but on a scope and scale yet to be experienced.

Read more about it at the Annecy website and Cartoon Brew.

The film will go into wide release on June 17.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians Animated Sequence

Percy Jackson & The Olympians Animated Sequence

In Episode 5 of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, titled “A God Buys Us Cheeseburgers”, Percy and Annabeth visit an abandoned amusement park and take a boat through The Tunnel of Love ride. Inside the tunnel an important history of a character is portrayed on the walls as animated shadow puppets, performed to the song, “Baby Don’t Hurt Me.” We created the shadow puppet animation at Tonic DNA.

The complete animated story that we produced lasted about a minute and a half (if I my memory serves me) but, as you can see in the clip below, only a small fraction was used in the show, which was by design. We had a great experience working with the creators.

The sequence is here:

The Looney Tunes feature is almost released! I had the priviledge of supervising much of the character animation on this wonderful film for the past year and a half, which is one of the highlights of my career. The team at WB lead by Pete Browngardt and Alex Kirwan are some of the best people I’ve worked for.

From the article on Variety:

Directed by Pete Browngardt and the creative team behind the “Looney Tunes Cartoons,” “The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Tunes Movie” stars Porky Pig and Daffy Duck as unlikely heroes and Earth’s only hope when facing the threat of alien invasion.
