I’m very proud and excited that Wonderbot is embarking into original animation. We’ve been producing for others for more than 3 years now and it’s been a great education. Now is the time to put some animation out there of our own.
Chew Toy is based around, you guessed it, a chew toy. He’s not exactly the nicest guy and that ultimately comes back to… bite him. This has been a little sprout of a story for more than 5 years and to see designs and story boards come together is incredible.
We’ve been hard at work on the story, conceptual designs, story boards and 3D models. Much of this effort has been from the very talented Krista Staggs, Chew Toy’s Lead Designer. Thanks, Krista! The plan is to finish pre-production and launch a Kickstarter campaign to help us fund the rest of the project. In addition to making this film, we are planning on posting all of our behind-the-scenes materials for our backers of a certain level. This will be a great resource for other animators/enthusiasts to see the inner works of our film, what we do right and what we might get completely wrong.
