“Cool Kitty” Vid Designed by Megan Brain

Class of 3000 music video

If Disney’s early-60s paper cutout short A Symposium on Popular Songs had included black people, they might have looked something like this music video that Megan Brain (mentioned here previously) recently designed for Cartoon Network’s Class of 3000 series. Joe Horne boarded and Chris Staples animated the characters in After Effects. Check it out below.

    It’s not entirely different from this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxDN49gQoBY which was produced recently in about 10 days for about 6 pounds 50.
    I’m not suggesting under any circumstances that anyone is ripping anyone off here – just pointing out another similar job.
    The music dictates the look of both really.

    Dang, I was hoping it was going to be better. The designs are pretty nice. It makes me think of those short animations that used to be on seaseme street. Now that would make an awesome dvd collection. Some of that animation was amazing (from memory)

    Shellie, I agree wholeheartedly. Megan Brain does absolutely beautiful work.

    Either way, this is probably the single best thing about CLASS OF 3000 (which I don’t watch much). Thanks for sharing this, Amid!

    Class of 3000 doesnt have many fans, and the show itself is rather meh, but the music videos at the end are usually fantastic.

    nice designs, but very typical slippy slidy flash animation – but hey, who am I to judge, we’ve pumped out stuff that looked worse because of budget restraints.

    I’m watching it with the audio off as me preggo wife is sleepin, and it still has some good rhythmic editing action.

    MTV generation UNITE!

    This video was basically animated by one guy in 3 days w/ After Effects. Meg spent a couple of weeks working out the designs and making the puppets and passed it off to Chris Staples to animate. I think it turned out really great, especially considering the time constraints.
