Behind-the-scenes info for a variety of series.
Animation director for The Simpsons Matthew Schofield is teasing the fact that he just finished producing behind-the-scenes commentary for “Lisa Goes Gaga” for what sounds like will be a potential home release follow up to the previous Season 18 which came out a while ago. AL Jean, Matt Selman, Matt Warburton, and Tom Gammill were all part of the recording session for the commentary which would be for a season 22 episode of the series which is odd because we have yet to see Seasons 19 through 21 on DVD home release just yet. Perhaps with the Disney acquisition of 20th Century FOX, we can get rolling with more home releases sooner rather than later.
In the meantime, we have an all-new episode of The Simpsons airing this Sunday Night written by cast member Nancy Cartwright entitled “The Girl’s in the Band”. In it, Lisa is scouted by the director of the Capitol City Philharmonic, to her band teacher’s dismay; Homer works extra shifts at the plant, putting strain on the family.
VRV has launched a new web series called Live from the WZRD and in the show’s first episode they go behind-the-scenes with the producers of Gary and his Demons to get a sense on “How to Make a Cartoon”. That said, it’s been nearly eight months since the first season of Gary and his Demons wrapped it’s first season and we’ve yet to hear of a season two pickup on what is arguably the entire platform’s most popular original series.
GARY AND HIS DEMONS is an animated comedy about a cantankerous, aging demon slayer who has nothing left to lose. Burdened by his “chosen one” status and backed by a team of specialists he can’t relate to, Gary struggles to keep interest in the Earth-saving duty he never asked for and doesn’t want. Watch how it’s made below:
