Karl worked with illustrator and animator Arthur Jones and Humanface co-founder Jon Bryski on Arthurâ€™s brainchild pitch for Foxâ€™s Inkubation program. A joint venture between 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting company, Fox Inkubation serves as a lab environment in the search for televisionâ€™s next breakthrough animated hit.
The development process was highly collaborative, and Arthur encouraged participation across creative disciplines, with all team members contributing to multiple areas of development. With a skeleton crew and a compact timeline of two months, we designed, storyboarded, animated, and edited three animated shorts for the proposal.
