Don't let the antlers distract you from that SICK BELT.

This will likely become a trend, so let it be known that we were the first to depict Gary Shandling as a flying imp.

One of the early ideas was to have the art "slap" on, like a series of stickers.

    this is quite similar to several other plots out there. some of the ideas are funny but do not seem original. maybe things will progress in a more interesting way.

    Way to go on your comedy coup efforts to date. You have succeeded in making it to the top 55 and that is something to be proud of. Already the competition is getting tough as the quality of the competitors gets refined. Best wishes for making it to the next level.

    I like your storyboard with its fictional turned reality characters but was looking for the side splitting comedy...

    Hmm this is interesting! I would've never thought to base a TV show off this.

    I love the presentation of the drawn on art, but I don't feel like this is a new idea at all.... "Roleplayers who take it too serious/far" has been done over and over.

    I think there is intrinsic comedy to be had via table-top roleyplaying, but I don't buy the "everyone gets too involved". In my opinion there is a lot more humor to be had from a collection of normal people with one/two crazies. *(I realize this idea has also been done plenty)*

    I know the joke is that the reactions are so unbelievable, but I guess it's just not my cup of tea. ((However killing the person who comes in with a min-maxed character it totally legit if they're being stuck up about it... Just watching them have to build a whole new character from scratch is worth it.))

    Like the use of art to show the people as their RPG characters. Watch out for Hasbro legal!

    this looks silly. and not in a good way. sorry I just don't see the non-LARP/D&D crowd laughing, unless it eventually involves someone getting stuffed in a locker

    This looks hilarious. At one point, you should fight the evil Lego-haired dictator. You gnomesayin'. Good luck!

    Awesome use of cartoon visuals haha. Check out our trailer, Geoff and the Ninja, for completely, 100% polar opposite style of cartoon VFX!

    I love how the drawings look like Rob Zombie's doodles he did for MTV in the 90s. You should look those up for inspiration.
