For the past two years I've been working at Cartoon Network running their "new media" department. A fancy title that means I make shorts for all their current shows. I jump from show to show and make a series of 2 minute shorts. I initially was hired to make 90! And believe it or not, I'm almost done with those! That's over 180 minutes worth of footage!
The other interesting thing about my department is that it's run with just two people. Myself and a production manager (Nate Funaro). Of course we freelance out a bit. He have a couple writers and sheet timers that we like to use. But for the most part, it's just Nate and I. So I get to wear a lot of hats, and so do the shorts themselves. They have been aired on television, cel phones, podcasts, and even in movie theaters!
Now that I'm almost done, it's fun to look back on all the shorts and see what we've done. Follow the links to some samples...

I was going thru an old folder of mine and I came across some boards I thought I'd post. I did this for Titmouse Animation back in 2005 I think. I had a blast doing this. Did it all in Photoshop. I submitted these to the Emmy's, but apparently the voters aren't Mingola fans. Or they just thought it sucked. Either way, I didn't hear anything. Oh well, there's always next year.
