“Avatar: The Last Airbender” S01E1, 2005

I found these assorted clips posted by the actual animator, but the were silent so I spliced them into the final version of the scene.

Hey guys. I’ll be out of town all week, so I’ll leave you with this for now.

Many assorted short clips from the “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series finale. It all goes by quickly and it’s quite a bit to take in, so watch it a couple times to see everything.

I’ll be back to regular posting on the 13th.

As you guys know, I’m fascinated by the process behind animation. From concept down to production, the whole thing is just plain interesting. A personal hobby of mine is collecting production artwork. I don’t have much because the prices tend to be outrageous (I’m looking at you, Disney cels.) But I’m slowly collecting what I can get a hold of.

Here are a few pieces I have from the first season of “Spongebob Squarepants”. I have some production drawings from “Sandy’s Rocket” and “Culture Shock” and a master background from “Neptune’s Spatula.”

A couple of these were scrap drawings or were cut from the final shot, but they’re still great fun to look at. One of them was also edited a bit before it was used in the final. The drawings that ended up on-screen I have posted with the correlating screen capture.

If any of you happen to own any sort of animation production art, show it off! I love to see what other people have in their own collections.
