August Studio Walkabout

Disney Feature story artist Paul Briggs is leading the charge with another limited edition compilation comic book (note the title above). This is a follow-up to the Disney story crew's 2008 Masterwork, which was a sell-out at the Comic-Con mere weeks ago.

You will note that the "Who" of Volume One has been replaced by the "What" of Volume Two, slated for Comic-Con '09. (Anybody care to guess what word might be at the top of Volume Three?) ...

Elsewhere in the Disney Animation Studio's hat building, the Princess and the Frog story crew is wrapping up major continuity work on that feature and moving on to other projects (and companies) even as PATF's production staff accelerates its efforts.

Meanwhile, work on Bolt nears the finish line.

Over at Rough Draft studios in Glendale, about two-thirds of the Sit Down, Shut Up artistic staff is now in place. As more scripts are completed and recorded, another director is added to the production mix, along with support staff (board artists, designers and affiliated crafts).

There are now four directors on board the good craft SDSU, with another two yet to be brought on.

I thought Rough Draft Studios was a non-union facility.

Nope. They are union... but we're both confused because I thought they were working on Mike Scully's show "The Pits".

Wait, "The Pitts" is going to series? I thought Fox rejected the animated version.

Fox decided to drop "The Pitts" when it announced it's fall schedule in June.

Rough Draft Feature Animation is a signator to TAG's contract.

Rough Draft Animation is not.

Two different companies. "The Simpsons Movie" and "Sit Down, Shut Up" were done under TAG's contract.

So even though it's a TV show, SDSU is being done by Rough Draft Feature? In fact, I don't really get why Sony decided to sub the animation out at all instead of just doing it at Adelaide with their other shows.
