Week #6 The Flip Bike Cops

This week's challenge was to take our show concept in a new direction. Animating Bike Cops gave us the opportunity to tell zany, off-the-wall jokes that aren't possible with our original concept. We love the endless possibilities of animation, but miss the chemistry of a live cast on set. A big thank you to Emmanuel Perez Izquierdo for animating this hilarious piece of work.

    Hey Bike Cops, don't be putting those kick stands down yet! I predict you'll be pedalling those short shorts to Whistler!

    Bike Cops, how long does it take for a bike cop to graduate from training wheels to two wheels? I noticed your screws were loose. Your mom is waiting in the school yard with orange wedges and a screw driver. The Mayor wants to give bike cops built in breathalyzers on the handlebars too. Hurry up time, and please post the ROAST! lol!

    SO GOOD! So glad I waited to watch... I needed the laugh tonight. Banter was silly and clever. Sound effects and little graphic extras delighted me to no end. Ripped Mountain Police - Censored - Lady Bug Lovers. Thoroughly Entertained. Nailed it. You may want to consider producing both if you haven't yet... what do you call these... "Animated Shorts" Boom. TM is Cliff'a, but you can have it... for 500K when you win... wait... I want Buddy Guys to win. Great job guys!!! Congrats on Top 15 and honoured to have made it here with you and the other unbelievable talent!

    I really liked that your flipit involved making an animated show, that was really unique and no other teams did that approach. Looks like it would have taken a lot of work to do in a week. Good job. Congratulations on making the top 15, best of luck!

    I did not see that you flipped your concept you just animated the same story. Agreed that the animation is well done, just not sure how that was enough to make Top 15?

    Thanks for watching Debbie! We're not entirely sure we could have managed an exploding outhouse, magical flying horse, literal motorcycle cops, and sexy ladybugs with our original concept, but if you know of ways to pull those off in a live-action comedy, please let us know!

    Also, this video didn't factor in to the Top 15 vote. It was all based on our live-action videos, and best of all, fan support!

    Great job, guys! Definitely the best flip of the Top 15. Really funny video, and it also gives you some great options going forward; it's good to know that your concept can work in a variety of different ways; I'm sure the eventual decision makers will appreciate that you guys are ready to go in a number of different directions with this!

    Love it! Love you guys, and total fun that you made it out to the Charlie and Yoni party for a cameo! Great to have met the real bike cops in my home town :)

    I have to admit, as much as I love the human show, I laughed outloud at the animation... you might be onto something... this works well as an animation, and TO doesn't have one of those ;) just sayin...

    So great to see you in the TOP 15 too! Ring those bike bells!!

    Thanks so much Sarah! I wish I could have made it out to Charlie and Yoni's event, but I'm glad Ted could make it as the Bike Cop ambassador!

    I'm also so glad that you enjoyed the animation! You're right that Toronto could use an animated show set in the city. We have some of the most talented animation studios in the world right here in T Dot. Thanks for watching and the amazing feedback!

    Thanks! We're glad you're curious Edward! Sorry to see in your rating that you didn't find the humour in our video. Cartoons/animation aren't for everyone and we totally knew that when we decided to try animation. I hope you'll check out the rest of our videos which aren't animated and maybe base your rating off those instead.

    Congratulations 'Bike Cops' on getting into the top 15! What an accomplishment. Great work on the 'Flip It' mission as well. I'm incredibly impressed with your ability to create an animated project in the given amount of time. Plus, it really was a flip it concept that is different from your original concept. Well done and you are truly deserving of being in the top 15!!!
