I'm still waiting to find Clarence on my TV (12 or so episodes left to air - hopefully some time soon!) but in the meantime we can watch these Find Clarence CN Mini web shorts:
I’ve been so busy lately - but I wanted to post updates about some fun projects I’ve been working on...
First of all, I’ve been writing full time on Julia Vickerman’s new show for Netflix (at PUNY studios) called Twelve Forever! I’m so excited for everyone to see the show!
It’s been a lot of fun to work on - if anyone wants to check it out, the original CN development pilot for the show is online. I’ll be doing a couple of voices for the show as well, so look out for the series some time in 2019 on Netflix!
I also spent a month on a game-jam style project, making a VR game prototype at Cartoon Network! It was so fun to get to do design/model some props and costumes as well as writing and voices. It was such a collaborative team and I hope you get to try our game soon! I’ll post more details about the game itself closer to when it becomes widely available.
I’m also excited to announce that I recently got to do some voice acting for HBO’s Animals! It was such a blast - the episode should be out some time this year, TBD (summer?) - more on that eventually.
I’ve also been writing and voice acting on some other projects that are still super secret/still in development, so more on those when they’re announced!
I also wanted to mention that Hulu recently added 26 new Clarence episodes for those people who don't have cable. There are 12 or so new Clarence episodes which haven't aired on TV yet, so look out for those (including some really special 'sodes/the series finale) later this year!
Happy New Year!
I just wanted to let people know that more Clarence episodes are coming to Hulu on December 23rd! I believe it will be second half end of Season 2. There are still about 13 or so episodes left to air of Season 3 on Cartoon Network as well - I’m really proud of the final run of episodes and hope people enjoy them when they air!
Hope everyone enjoyed the recent Halloween and Thanksgiving episodes in the meantime.
I’ve been writing on some other animated projects lately and it’s looking like at least one of them will be announced soon - so stay tuned!
I am very excited to be speaking as part of Pixelatl IdeaToon BootCamp! Next week I will be headed to Cuernavaca to speak about the animation process to a group of creators who are interested in pitching their own animated projects. Pixelatl is an organization devoted to the creative industries in Mexico, mainly animation, video games and comics.
I can't wait to meet the creators and learn more about their animation ideas!
New Clarence Episodes Coming Soon!
Just wanted to keep fans in the loop about upcoming Clarence episodes! Season 3 has already started (the 4 episodes pictured below have aired already if you want to catch up!) but there is much more to come!
Most notably, the next batch of episodes to air will be a 6 episode miniseries called ✨Clarence's Stormy Sleepover✨!
It was so fun to write a longer story, as well as give some of the other characters in Aberdale their own episodes! The first episode in the miniseries will be released early (before it airs on TV) on the CN App and VOD, as a sneak peek of the Stormy Sleepover arc, likely late Sun 5/21 - The remaining 5 episodes from the miniseries will go live on CN's See It First Friday (6/2). The episodes are written to be watched in order, so please follow along with the story if you can!
I just wanted to address some questions about Clarence. Sadly the third season will be the last; we were not renewed past Season 3. Having said that, there are still a LOT of new episodes coming - Clarence will be premiering through 2018! Season 3 has some really cool episodes in it, including some of my favorites that we've ever done. Expect guest stars, callbacks, returning characters, character development, experiments with format, and other fun surprises!
Some people were concerned about the series having a proper ending, but no need to worry about that either! The season ending should serve as a proper series ending as well. Of course there will always be ideas and routes I wish we could have gotten to, but this season has some really stellar episodes that expand on the universe of the show and its characters in a fun way that we haven't really done before.
I also wanted to say an immense thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who works/worked on the show, and to anyone who is a fan. Making a TV show is a group effort and the dedication to craft and love that went into Clarence is what makes it such a special show and experience to work on. I won't get too sappy, but before Clarence I was living in a van down by the river, and eating clumps of dirt and old tires for sustenance, so it really means a lot to me! For real though, I was very inexperienced and I learned a ton on the show! This week will be my last Clarence voice record session, so it'll be almost exactly 4 years of working on the show. It's become a huge part of my life, and the crew like a second family to me. Thanks to everyone who has helped me learn and made me laugh along the way.
As for the future, I'm not sure specifically what I'll be doing beyond more creative TV work - probably writing and voice acting, and eventually developing some pilot pitches of my own! I will try to post more about all that here when I find the time.
Until next time!
Just wanted to keep people posted - no new episodes this week, but there are some new ones coming up!
First off, I did an interview for a podcast called The Beaucephus Broadcast - apologies for any throat clearing as I'm fighting a cold:
Secondly - I just wanted to confirm that this Friday 2/10 at 6:30, Clarence Season 3 will premiere with 2 new episodes back to back:
I'm so excited about the new Clarence episodes coming up!
First off, this Friday (2/3 at 6:30), the Season 2 finale episode "Pizza Hero" will premiere at 6:30, storyboarded by Katie Aldworth and Jason Dwyer - and written by Nick Cron-Devico. Also - watch out for a special animated sequence by Julian Glander!
Secondly, the following week (Fri 2/10)*, the Season 3 premiere episode "Sumo Goes West" will air - storyboarded by Tiffany Ford and Tyler Chen - and written by Tony Infante. Season 3 will be a little different in that there is a Sumo through-line plot throughout the season. Without spoiling too much, I would say fans should revisit the episode "Field Trippin" as it establishes a lot which relates to Sumo's arc in Season 3.
*The episode "Valentimes" will most likely also premiere on Fri 2/10 so stay tuned for more info on that...
Just wanted to post about some cool new Clarence things coming up...
Looks like a Clarence figure will be included in the next batch of Titans vinyl figures (estimated in stock May 24th)! Pretty cool for all you toy fans out there.
There's also a new Clarence graphic novel coming out this year called "Getting Gilben" - which is available for pre-order on Amazon, available April 25th.
Welcome to my new website/blog...still figuring it all out, but this could be a place where I'll post updates about myself and what I'm working on! Not much to report quite yet - but I've got some irons in the fire - so for now, here's a picture of some monkeys that I like.
26 new Clarence episodes from Season 2 were added to Hulu!
