Kurt and Philip are two brothers, age 10 and 11, and one night they get sucked in their beds...
Sucked into another dimension, that is!
This dimension is filled with monsters and, under the guidance of an evil lady called Mallorie, want to take over the earth. So the boys have to protect the gate between the two dimensions. Gatekeepers!
That's the story of our Graduation Project! A project of Médard Vriend and me.
Because we have a mutual obsession with films and 80's cartoons
(Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Thundercats, Transformers etc.), we wanted to create a leader that brings you back to the old days!
Cartoon leaders back in the day were better than the cartoons themselves; action-packed and filled with sick camera movements. With a visual style that fits the cartoons you see today, but with the structure of 80's cartoon leaders and full of movie and cartoon references and little jokes, we made a tribute to the things we loved (and still love) in our youth.
The whole project was done frame by frame and drawn by hand.
A technique we only had a tiny bit of experience in!
WE HOPE YOU LIKE IT!
Two average boys
Making too much noise
Parents getting mad
Cause they have to go to bed
So they turn off the light...
And get sucked in bed
In the middle of the night!
Sucked into another dimension
They land on a mountain with an evil mansion.
Mallorie again wants to take over earth
That ain't nice, no that ain't nice
Kurt feels something hard in his pants
And pulls it out with his hands
It's a giant snaaaaaaaake!
Philip's a wussy and runs from the foe
Only to stumble on a cheesy toe
The toenail shoots away voor no apparent reason.
Philip becomes the surfer of the season.
Kurt has a surprise for this horny monsterguy.
"What's in the box!"
It's a cat's head with a laser eye
Philip is running away again
Jumping to a rope, he's an acrobatic man.
Gatekeepers in disguise,
The monster fools are in for a filthy surprise!
Mallorie spawns a ball of energy
That's a giant Mallorie yeahh
