In 2006, I decided to finally produce a short pilot for an idea I’d had for an anime parody. Homage. Ode.
There’s a vast lode of comedy to mine from the anime and action/fantasy genres – I think I barely scratched the surface. In my defense, I made this thing in a ridiculously short period of time – doing everything except a few voices and the painted backgrounds. If memory serves, I started writing and finalizing character designs in mid April and submitted the final pilot in mid June.
It won the major awards at the NYTVF that year and I expected the phone to ring of the hook with Hollywood executives panting, ready to exploit me.
I piss the demon blood of my enemies!
