I'm a desperate jingle writer (in this animation!)
Oh hi there chummos!
I recently worked on an animated pilot called Pancake Panic with a big YouTube channel called Mashed. It’s about a struggling jingle writer called Frankie who ends up in weird situations writing jingles for bizarre things - this time to help the Pancake Guild promote pancakes!
I wrote the music and performed the voice of Frankie and Chocolate Sauce. My partner Katie voiced Egg and Maple Syrup!
A film student called Filipa Silva made a video to my song Dinosaurs by editing found footage from old films with some original footage she shot.
The final result is awesome, just like dinosaurs!
Some things I’ve enjoyed recently I think you might enjoy too!
- Joel Haver’s YouTube Channel - this guy has been making silly videos for a while and just blew up from 3k subscribers to 733k in the last two months thanks to this series of animations.
- Pointer Pointer - a website that detects where your cursor is and choses a photo of a person pointing at it. A momentary diversion, but it’s pretty fun!
- Róisín Murphy - The Time Is Now - a home concert video with Róisín managing to be totally captivating and badass in her living room!
- Popcorn cover with homemade pipe instrument - a making video with a fun version of Popcorn at the end :)
That’s it for now, I hope you’re doing ok. The sunshine is coming, just keep going.
