@06:166:15 Sock seems like the kind of person to rub the back of his neck here. Just in case you ever get to this point in the comic.

@00:45I went to the Kansas City Art Instutute in Kansas City, MO.  (KCAI, not to be confused with the Art Institutes chain!)
I'm an animation major, and they teach a little bit of everything, and then let you ultimately decide the path you want to take.  The program is pretty new compared to those at larger schools on the coast, and from what I've experienced, the curriculum adapts and changes to fit the needs of the students currently enrolled.  You start off doing hand-drawn traditional animation, then learn a some digital methods, and Maya, some After Effects, and then you're encouraged to explore whatever medium you want.  : )

@04:16Ahhh, yeah! I don't even remember writing half of the stuff on his file because I hadn't slept in 2 days and the film was due in like an hour, haha... I was about to die. xD But some of that stuff had been in there since the animatic. "Attack of the Animation Hair" is a really funny blog post by John K, where he talks about how all the male leads in animated movies from the 90s have the same haircut. Jonathan's hair is basically that.

Glad you noticed the little details! I put that stuff in there with the hope that maybe one person somewhere will get a kick out of it.

@05:43Ah, sorry that wasn't clear...

He's kind of blocked in and another kid in class kicks him because he's stalling for so long (public school, kids are mean). He spots an opening; if he throws it to this weird kid whose been following him all day. Jonathan doesn't know at this point that he's the only person who can see Sock. So as far as everyone else is concerned, he's passing the ball to no one.

Here ya' go guys. It still needs some work, but this is as finished as it's gonna' get for the time being.

A character-centric comedy about an unfortunately friendly demon and the apathetic highschooler he's supposed to be haunting.

Senior graduation animation produced at the Kansas City Art Institute, May 2013. By Erica Wester.

Have to agree with 8-BitStudios! This is quite good. Makes me remember the time when cartoons/shows were still good.
And might I ask which program you used to put the animation together?

This has enough potential to be a TV series. Erica, if your out there, please pitch the story to a company!

Thanks!  I am trying to figure out the best course of action actually... it's kind of hard to pitch something with themes like this to a lot of networks/studios, but I'd definitely like to pitch it somewhere!  I'm glad you think it has the potential, thanks for the support!  : )
