StoryBots - Dink & Doink : Ocean

Nate Theis has uploaded the full short

A clip of the final short, where Dink and Doink argue how deep the ocean is

Insanely proud to have worked on the new StoryBots : Answer Time show!

We were already HUGE #StoryBots fans in our household, so I cannot thank Evan Spiridellis enough for taking a chance bringing me on board for the new series. I don't know who was more excited, me or our kids (it was me).

I worked on a few things for the show but my main contribution was working on these two new bickering bot buddies, Dink and Doink.

Only once I'd begun work on the first short did Evan reveal to me that the two actors voicing them would be none other than Dave Goelz and Frank Oz! Both of whom are not only absolute legends but also personal heroes of mine. It was truly daunting to have to animate, knowing how good they both are as puppeteers and performers!

This is a clip from the first Dink and Doink short I worked on for the show, where they're arguing over how deep the ocean is. The characters were created and written by Nate Theis, with art direction by Romney Caswell and overall direction from Jeff Gill and Evan Spiridellis.

Design, modelling, rigging, texturing, animation, rendering and post production by me.

The new series is SO much fun and there are an insane number of talented people involved. If you have kids or even if you don't, you should definitely check it out!
