"Buffy Season 8" Comic Book to become a Motion Comic

jeudi 18 juin 2009, par Webmaster

I have a friend. A friend who, for now, shall remain nameless. I graduated from film school with this friend. When he graduated, he moved out to LA to persue the dream that is filmmaking. Ever since then, he’s been working his way up the corporate ladder. And just this week, what we have tentatively titled ”his big break” broke.

He was asked to help produce a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer animated series.

Details are still a little vague, but the show will (at least start off as) an adaptation of the Buffy comic books. He described the series as “motion comics.” Will they be taking the original artwork and frames, just adding motion and sound effects, like the Watchmen motion comic or will they prodce a more traditional animated show, using the comic books as storyboards, is not yet certain. And what comics, exactly, is also uncertain. Is it some of the original comics that were released during the show’s run ? Or is it from Buffy’s “Season 8 ?” What is certain is that because they’re using the comic books as their starting point, all our favorite characters will be returning and this animated series will compliment the original series. Whether any of the original cast will provide voices is uncertain (though I’m doubtful). But Joss Whedon is involved.

As my friend put it, “Whedon’s involved, but not on an ‘in-the-studio’ kind of way. He will pop in at bench-marks and give the thumbs up to make the studio happen. Not as much involvement as any of us want, but its better than not any at all.”

Count me excited. I’ve long said I wished that Whedon and company would make the Buffyverse America’s response to Doctor Who.
