Charlie and the Nighthawks

Hi guys! Here is a new animatic short I posted on YouTube couple of weeks ago. It is inspired from my love of old Hanna Barbera action adventure cartoons such as Herculoids, Samson and Goliath, Jonny Quest, etc. when I used to watch reruns growing up as a kid. This is the first in a series and hope to post new episodes every quarter. The short was created entirely from Toonboom Storyboard Pro.

Outstanding work, Fred! Very well done! Great sense of action, staging and pace.

Wow, great stuff! Better voice acting than most stuff i have heard recentlty - and timing!

Keep it coming!

Great work Audio Installation wonderful…
I want to participate

Thanks for checking it out, guys! I am having so much fun with this project. Episodes two and three are completely done without audio and few sound fxs. Moving on with episode four. Can’t wait to post episode two in couple of months. BTW, spreading the word is fully appreciated.

Was cool. Are you going to do final versions?

Just posted second episode. Enjoy!

I saw this on youtube a while ago, and I wanted to throw everything I’ve ever done away, lol. This is ridiculously good, not just the drawing, but the shots/pacing/composition/ is all A + material. Without a doubt where I want to be in a couple of years.

Thanks for checking it out, Alex. Hopefully what you saw can only serve as an inspiration. Continue to draw everyday and have a passion for what you really like. Those are the only two real ingredients you need to improve as an artist.

Thanks for the advise much appreciated, did you do this in Storyboard pro? do you have more work up somewhere?

Hi Alex, sorry it took awhile to get back to you. I don’t log in regularly. Yes, all the work was done using Storyboard Pro. I am a big fan of the software. I have other work posted, but they are mostly comic book stuff, concepts, and fun sketches outside of Toonboom.

Would love to take a crack at it, but going to stick with Storyboard Pro for now. I don’t have software to animate and I am unfamiliar with animating software on Toonboom or what is right for me. Another issue is time to complete a project.

Posted third episode today. Check it out! Thanks, guys!
