My work on this episode, which aired today:
"And there he goes!" - "Let's go Gonnigan, we need all the fairies we can get!" - "You know gerbilcorns, they love to be chased! A little fairy chase music please!"
Note - the first part of this shot was the last shot shown on the earlier YouTube promotional video.
"Oh no, we're on top of a mountain!" - "And Niblet's at the bottom!"
While originally animated in the close up perspective, this shot was later split into two shots, the latter portion merging with shot 310. Niblet was animated by Will Robertson, a freelance generalist and animator who came in briefly this spring to help while Scott (our owner) was away.
"Then how will we ever catch him?" - "Oh you can't catch a gerbilcorn."
Initially, we were given notably the deepest, most out-of-character vocal performance for Gonnigan. The shot was later extended slightly to accommodate improved vocal characteristics.
"Unless he wants to be caught."
"I'll never get to pet him again?"
"And I'll never get to try to pet him again."
"Uh, oh... okay!" - "Meep!" - "Oh! This feels nice!"
One of the cuddlier moments I ever got to animate on the show, with Niblet jumping into Gonnigan's arms.
PS - Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Episode 2... you won't regret it, it's a gorgeous episode with some amazing visual sequences... don't miss it!
