June 2011 / Comedy Central Submissions
A series of 10 second stings made as an answer to the following Comedy Central email...
'Hey there, Animation Students!
Here at Comedy Central, we 've been thinking. More often than not, its young
animators like you who make the most contemporary, original and downright
funny animation going'. We are in the early stages of creating a new, topical comedy show that will run
late night on Comedy Central, five times a week. If you 'd like the opportunity
to have your animation go out on one of the biggest comedy stations around,
then why not send us some of your work.
Animations should be between 3 and 10 seconds long, they should stand alone
and be able to fit anywhere in the show. 'If this sounds like something that you are interested in then send us some of your
stuff to the email address below. We look forward to hearing from you soon!!'
I made the submissions under the pseudonym Gavin Paul and emailed them daily with messages like...
