GO TEAM TWO SHOES!

My old buddy Sean Scott of Tarofish Animation is quite famous for developing hit properties. He was one of the founding artists at Collideascope in Nova Scotia back in the mid 90's. Here he developed a show called "Ollie's Under the Bed Adventures". He was the dude who developed that studio as an animation power before moving on in the early turn of the century to greener pastures.

Sean (check out his blog yo!)then smashed the boarder to a new province and this is where he developed the neat little cartoon "Doodlez" that had great promise. This was with Cellar Door Productions in PEI; it did quite well indeed. (I remember supplying all the sound effects for the pilot!!! - where's my cheque!? ahahha.. jokin I gladly volunteered the library!)

Now Sean is in Montreal Quebec, (bypassing New Brunswick and Newfoundland all together, SHAME ON YOU!!!) he's going nuts I imagine. He's quite the dude and we don't keep in touch as often as I'd like.

Sean Scott is a television creative genius and is going to be quite famous I'd imagine. He knows the secret to making a great cartooon show and it's just a matter of time before one takes off for him.

Wait! this just in!!!

JIMMY TWO SHOES DANCES ONTO MOBILE GAMING FORMATS.

SilverBirch Studios and Breakthrough New Media announced that they have
signed an agreement to develop two games based on the upcoming animated
kids television series JIMMY TWO SHOES, to be broadcast on Teletoon
Canada and Jetix Europe.

In the show, Jimmy is an enthusiastic 14-year-old kid who, through a
series of missteps, falls into the weird world of Miseryville, where
everything is designed to inflict torment on its inhabitants. Always
irrepressible, Jimmy stirs up the fun in his new bizarre home, much to
the chagrin of Miseryville's Big Cheese -- Lucius Heinous the Seventh.
As part of the agreement, SilverBirch Studios will develop one mobile
game, which will be distributed through Swedish-based Global Fun, and
one online Flash game that will be housed on the official website at
Teletoon.com. Both games will concurrently launch when the JIMMY TWO
SHOES series debuts in early 2009.

The JIMMY TWO SHOES interactive project (both mobile and online) has
been funded through the Telefilm Canada New Media Fund and the Bell
Broadcast and New Media Fund.

SilverBirch Studios is a developer, based in Toronto, specializing in
handheld and mobile games. The company is focused on end-to-end game
development with leading publishers for projects based on its own
proprietary IP, as well as that of its many partners. SilverBirch
Studios Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of SilverBirch Inc., a

aw. thanks gene. I'm blushing a little. (pst... that's the old character design). He's not all that different now but we've lost the tie n stuff).

I'm now in Ottawa full time (back to Montreal for the weekends) working with the fine cats at Mercury Filmworks. Crazy amazing team so far and board artists that would make you cream.

All the best buddy and thanks again.
