CN Looney Toons and Scooby-Doo Tonight

Animation’s most beloved characters are back in an all-new series, The Looney Tunes Show, premiering Tuesday, May 3, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network. Bugs and Daffy haven’t changed — but their living situation has. Bugs is as brazen, sarcastic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his narcissistic, sociopathic and paranoid tendencies, is Bugs’ best friend and seemingly permanent houseguest. No longer confined to seven-minute shorts, their larger-than-life personalities (and egos) offer … Continue reading

As paranormal shows started popping up on TV, I thought, this can be done. We formed a group and started from there. How long … Continue reading

Kelli Maroney Interview: (Night of the Comet, Chopping Mall, Fast Times at Ridgemont High) Night of the Comet is one of those movies that I just have to watch every time it’s on television.

Yes, the scene on the cop car where I tell Cathy … Continue reading

Unexplained Confidential: 2012 or bust

unexplained5

It’s becoming more and more evident to me that our time on this planet is limited. It’s a strange thing, this 2012 rhetoric. I’m not one to easily buy into doomsday theories, but the last couple of months have been un-relentless with signs of the apocalypse. You need only look to the skies to see thousands of dead birds dropping to the ground, to get the point. How about all the dead fish washing up … Continue reading

Interview: Matt Pizzolo (GodKiller)

Matt_Pizzolo_6

Why did you go with an illustrated film as opposed to another method of animation? There are lots of reasons, but I think the most important one was really being inspired by Anna Muckcracker’s gorgeous artwork. Brian Giberson (my partner at Halo-8) and I had been experimenting with the illustrated film format for a while, but we might still have gone with traditional animation for Godkiller since it’s really risky to experiment with a crazy … Continue reading

How did you break into acting? Break? I’m still at the door kicking! I started doing plays when I was younger and just never stopped. After high school, I started going to college, but I was miserable there. I wanted to be in Los Angeles, the only classes i was interested in were the few acting classes that the school offered, so I left. “The Devil Within” was a great little movie that helped me … Continue reading
