“Wow!”, I hear you all saying. “Another Moocast and so soon! Thank you Mister Trog, you’re awesome!” Yes. Yes I am, and you very are welcome. So, here it is folks: episode #102, where in we talk with Inside Out actress:92a86df66c5238f4842cb2d222e0e6ba_400x400 Lori Alan!!! Lori has been in such great shows like Toy Story 3, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Family Guy and now she’s here to tell us all about working on Inside out! Frigg’n groovy!

Just a real quick note about this show: While recording with Lori, the call dropped. Many times. Maybe it was Verizon, maybe it was Skype, I don’t know (wasn’t me) but there were a few times the call was interrupted. However, I’m a middling to good editor, so what follows is all the pieces put back together in a mostly seamless way.Mom'sSaddness Mostly… I would have mentioned all that on the Moocast itself, but I forgot. So, yeah, that happened, but it was still an awesome conversation and we are very happy Lori came on our show.

So, here we go folks! This Moocast is a fresh, steaming, load of podcasting excellence just waiting to ooze down your ear holes! Prepare yourselves! Go now and get a cool fizzy soda, and find that comfy spot, because you’re about to let the Moocast into your brain squidgy regions of your brain!

Where Are All The Aliens?


The Fermi Paradox explained

Ahh science. Sexy, sweet, science… Check out this great animation from Kurz Gesagt that expertly explains the Fermi Paradox, or why the aliens are so damn quiet. You can see more science animations on the Kurz Gesgat website. Now sit back and be prepared to receive education from a man with a British accent.



Its Monday, and what’s the best thing you’re going to see this week? Well, I’ll tell you (shhh… I got this. shhh…). Check out this great, amazing, awesome, rad (yes: rad), animation from ArhyBES, on the Youtube, about a Batman gone metal. The music is Face Fisted by Metalocalypse: Dethklok.

The Morning Moo!


TIE Fighter – short film

Hello El Moochadores. There’s just one thing I wanted to post about this morning and it’s pretty incredible. Check out the short animation Tie Fighter by youtuber OtaKing77077. According to the youtube page it took him over four years to complete this project.

What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays?TieFighter Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards. Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years’ worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts’ seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day…

This really is “geek creative” at it’s best and more than a little inspiring.


When No One Gets Your Cosplay


or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

Check out this great animation from OnlyLeigh about “What goes on in your heads after no one recognizes the comic-con costume you’ve spent all night working on.” My only problem with this is who the hell doesn’t recognize Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law!?! He’s the greatest superhero/legal council ever to exist! Well, there is that Daredevil guy… Anyways, the video was produced by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez with voice work by Alex Shaw and David Magidoff.


Mean Teddies


An Epic 2D Animation!

Hello El Moochadores! Sorry about the lack of post the last few days, but all the horrible stuff (I call it life) that held us up from regular posting has calmed down a bit, so we should be able get a bit more done in the days to come. Anyhow…

Check out this very cool animation from Tyler Novo about the happenings of teddy bears after the children go to sleep. This animation as a wonderful style about it and an almost heroic feel.

Expressions and Poses for Dragons!


Tutorial by Sammy Torres!

Via Deviant Art: Hey El Moochadores! It’s been difficult posting anything for Atomic Moo this last couple of weeks, but I’m trying to get back on track with at least one daily post about something creative or inspiring.

Lucky for me I came across this great tutorial on drawing dragons by animatorCapture Sammy Torres (aka SammyTorres) on Deviant Art. Torres goes through and shows every step of the process for constructing a dragon and adding emotion and definition to the drawing. What I like about this tutorial is that all these steps can be applied to other forms of cartooning or animation. She also demonstrates how important reference images can be for creating a pose or emotion. I’ve posted several times before about a comic strip I’m currently working on about mice figures (Chudd and Trog) and studying tuts like this is helping me create the characters and world I want. Anyways, I won’t post the full tutorial here. For that you’ll have to got to Torres’s Deviant Page where a full (FREE!) download of this, and many other, tutorials can be found! Also, check out some sample work from Torres’s Dragon works below!

Support Hullabaloo, A Steampunk Animated Film


Here’s something pretty neat I just came across. It’s a 2D animation from some veteran Disney artists called Hullaballoo. Looks like they’re trying to raise some funds for it (and doing a helluva good job so far—goal of $80,000 and they’ve already hit over $212,000) on Indiegogo. Here’s a brief synopsis from their Indiegogo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father–the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring–missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.

But the question remains: what are the villains up to? What do they plan to do with Jonathan Daring’s mysterious new technology? And will Veronica and Jules be able to stop them in time?

Sounds pretty good, and from what I saw on the video, it looks pretty awesome to. I just might throw in a buck to help these guys out. Hell, the more they get the better it’ll be. Right? Why not. Check out their Indiegogo page and and see what you can do for them. Also check out their site for more info, and their Facebook page.
