Episode Title: Fantastic Four
Original Airdate: 10-15-12
Welcome to another Webseries Spotlight where you don’t just have to read about the shows we cover here, but you can actually watch them. This time around I’m featuring an animated webseries from Klomp Animation based out of the Netherlands about superheroes having a bad day, appropriately called Bad Days. Like with We Might Be Superheroes we will be sharing an episode, a part of our conversation with lead animator and co-founder Junaid Chundrigar, and some behind the scenes pictures each week every Thursday. But if you can’t wait, feel free to check out the rest of the webseries at Stan Lee’s World of Heroes and CineFix. This week it’s not just one person having a bad day, but four people who could be considered quite fantastic and I’m terribly sorry for that. Just watch!
Channel Superhero: What’s been the most difficult character to translate to your style?
Junaid Chundrigar: Characters with a lot of detail are tough to do because of the limited production time we had for the episodes. Characters with a lot of lines (like Fantastic Four’s The Thing) are always hard because we have to think of ways for them not to move to much, without it feeling cheap. Spider-man is another one because he moves a lot but he’s also filled with web lines all over his body. That’s why in the second Spidey episode, we had him take off the suit after just one shot.
If you have a question for Bad Days, leave it in the comments and your question may be answered in a future installment!
