"STOKED" Promotional Tour!
It's been a while since my last post, as there has been little time to update lately... but that will change soon enough! Look for new Posts and Tutorials Soon!
For the past couple months, I have basically been working Two jobs for the same studio. Full-time Creating and Compositing Flash-Animated Ocean and Surfing Effects on "Stoked" during the day... and my evenings and weekends have been spent creating a minute-long Flash Animated Short for a new pilot project for the same studio.
My fellow Artist friend, Brian Woods and I are working on this project together, but it's turned into quite the task, because the short film changes characters, locations and effects every 5-10 seconds.... so there's a lot to create from scratch. We're nearly done, and I'll be sure to do a blog entry about it all in the future.
Now on to the news!
The first episode of "Stoked" will be airing on Thursday June 25th on "Teletoon", Canada's Cartoon Channel.... and soon after on the Cartoon Network in the USA.
To promote the show, Teletoon has 'pimped out' a Hummer SUV on all-sides with STOKED Graphics! It'll also be pulling a pimped out trailer, that has built-in LCD screens to show off our animated show. They're taking to the road and bringing "Stoked" to many cities across Canada!

There will also be a lot of internet and television promotions for our show over the summer, so look for those on TV and the Teletoon Website in the near future!
We're all proud of the show we've created. It's fresh and funny, with great characters, current music, and beautiful backgrounds and ocean effects that are raising the bar of Flash Animation and Design. We're confident it'll be just as popular as our other hit shows, 6-Teen and Total Drama Island.
I hope you'll be watching on June 25th when Stoked goes to air! Look for all other episodes set to air Sunday Nights at 7pm EST.
Thanks for reading!
