Entry 4. By David,

I was sitting in front of the computer the other
day, possibly working, when the phone rang. I picked it up
and heard the unmistakable voice of Shaun
I had forwarded him an early copy of the HERMAN
script in the hopes that he would be interested in voicing
the role of Leonard Palumbo, the cold prosecuting attorney.
Now, here he was on the other end of the line, agreeing to
do it, and for no pay (in my cover letter, I had guaranteed
him $40. I later upped the ante to $58).
The word is "yeep".
What does this mean for HERMAN? Well, it means...
1. he likes the script, which is pretty thrilling,
since he is, in my opinion, one of the most surreal, intelligent
comedy writer/performers in the country,
2. HERMAN just became slightly easier to promote,
3. I get to tell Adam
he's costarring with the guy who played Milo and Fabio on
4. I get to bark at the man in a recording session,
5. Palumbo is gonna have EXACTLY the right voice.
Also, the storyboards are coming along, and
with luck I'll meet my deadline and have them all done by

November 12, 1955. Of course! That was the
day I invented the Flux Capacitor! I was standing on the edge
of my toilet, hanging a clock, when --
Work on the storyboards, score and lucrative
tie-in comics continues.
HERMAN will be animated in widescreen format
(16:9). As people have wondered, yes, this means letterboxing
for regular TV presentation, but personally, I think black
bars look cool.

Despite many distractions, both fun and otherwise,
I am pretty close to having the HERMAN storyboards, HERMAN
website (the one you're reading), HERMAN press notes and HERMAN
teaser trailer done for the new year. Everything is moving
along nicely, so it seems almost trivial that the AFC
rejected my application for animation production funding.
As I said before,
it won't make a huge difference, except that come post-production
we'll be flying by the seats of our pants, financially speaking.
I hope the lucky people who got the funding actually use it
to make great animation -- I've heard that there are a few
rotten apples around who take government funding and piss
it up the wall...
