Quarterlife

Have you heard about Quarterlife?


A show about a group of twenty-somethings coming of age in the digital generation. And a social network about what it means to be creative, to pursue a passion, to make a difference in the world, or just to find a place in it. Coming to MySpace November 11th and quarterlfe.com November 12th.


Finally!! As a young creative blogger growing up in the digital generation, it's impossible to watch this trailer without feeling like it's ripped from my own life:

End Of Jimmy's Head

Well, today was my last day at Out of Jimmy's Head, unless there is a second season. Shooting wrapped yesterday, and we cleaned out our offices. It is pretty sad, actually. Kind of like the last day of a school play or something, except that in this case it means no more paycheck. I can't complain too much, though. I've been employed since November working on it, which in TV is a pretty long gig. Plus I got a pretty generous parting bonus from the writers. It was a fun show to work on, and the episodes have been coming out quite nicely. I suppose in most jobs I will not get a chance to get this comfortable in one place.

For those of you who have been wondering, that is a vinyl wrap on my car, not paint, so it will come right off.

I have been thinking about doing some kind of series of commentary posts about the episodes. Are you guys actually watching them? Would this be something that anyone is interested in?

Out Of Jimmy's Head On iTunes


Out of Jimmy's Head is now available on iTunes, so now those of you without cable have no excuse for not watching it. Well, I guess there is still the excuse, "I don't want to pay money to buy your show on iTunes," but let's not sink to that level, shall we?

Also, the show's creators, Adam and Tim, have a cheesy interview online.

Starbucks

Haven't had a chance to compress a 4:3 version to upload to YouTube yet, but I'll add that link once it's ready. For now, those of you who can use the Crackle version can check out the sketch that threatens to put us on a terrorist watch list.



Update: That Crackle player seemed flaky, so I've embedded the YouTube video instead.

Update madness!: Or you could watch the Vimeo version. I actually find that Vimeo's player is the clearest and the smoothest. Although the site itself, while attractively designed, is a bit of a pain to navigate.

Set Your TiVo

So the show I've been working on for the better part of a year now is about to premiere this week on Cartoon Network. Out of Jimmy's Head (formerly Re-Animated) airs its first episode this Friday at 7. Sure, you could think of it as a kids' show, or a blasphemous deviation from Cartoon Network's focus on animation. But you could also think of it as a show from the writers of such beloved favorites as Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Futurama.

And plus, I worked on it.

So again, Friday at 7, on Cartoon Network.

You can also check out a preview of the first few minutes of the first episode here.

Off The Grid

First, we had a hiatus week while Mike was out of town. Next, we shot a sketch that was not fit for the viewing public. Finally, we managed to shoot a sketch and I went all week without finding the time to edit it. But now, after an unintentionally long hiatus, sketches are back! Or at least, this one is:
