The Pilot Project

You know what I like most about the Pilot Project? That the folk here at Teletoon don’t make me lie and say I like everything about it. Cause to be honest, some of the episodes really suck. But that’s what happens when you’re really only given one episode to play with.

Some of them don’t have the time to really develop what it is they’re trying to do; that’s because they’ve only got one shot to do it in. That can be really hard when you’ve got an idea that’s a bit complex. It’s similar to when I tried to compete for Mr Olympia after only training for two weeks. If I’d had more time I could have won and would have lived out my dream of having really small testicles and backne.

Take Space Knights, I found myself just thinking of how good of an idea the writers had. If they were given more time they could have wound up doing something really cool with it. In fact there was a scene in it that had me rewinding and re-watching it a few times. I won’t ruin it for you, but involves “Fort McMoney, Alberta.” (it’s gonna be broadcast on Nov 28 so make sure you watch)

I think the concept for Space Knights is good and would like to see more just to give it a real chance, but I can say that about a few of the different Pilot Projects. Like Dunce Bucket, I know a few of the people involved on that show and they’re really funny. I have no doubt if they were able to bang out a few episodes you’d wind up seeing some really funny sketches.

I have to say the chessboard still makes me laugh. So obvious but just great. I would have loved to have seen them recording the audio for that. I bet the voice actor just kept throwing out lines. Very funny make you sure you keep your eyes peeled for it.

Then there was Drop Dead Gorgeous. I honestly had no clue what was going on. I saw titties everywhere and these girls that I think were in high school getting into a locker. Then all of a sudden there was a couple boning in a change room. I know this sounds weird but that’s what was happening. Sort of like a plot line for a Motley Crew music video if they were on a James Bond soundtrack.

Also, I would be willing to date one of the characters on Ninjamaica. That’s all I’m saying.

The thing that really makes me happy about us airing the various pilots is that I hope it shines some light on Canadian Animators.

There’s a lot of talent in this country and it sucks at how little credit we for it. We watch more American TV than Canadian. I’m not gonna get on a soap box, but anyone who writes comics or animates or any of that stuff knows how many fewer venues we have in Canada than the people south of the border.

So … if you watch any of these and think they blow, why not try and do better. If you don’t know how to animate get some flash software and learn. Who knows, if we ever do another Pilot Project you could find your magnum-opus getting shown on national television.
