            Can one of our Simpsons fan-boys (I know we have a dozen) confirm if this guy is legit? He seems nice enough and I can appreciate his enthusiasm. Just doesn't seem like he worked as an animator for the Simpsons...

              These new guys are often troublemakers. Anyone remember that guy who pretended to be Bobby Budnick from Salute Your Shorts? What makes this dude different?
              There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

              One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

                He only made one post, and the cartoon seems oddly alluring.

                  If this guy is fake he is so good he might as well be real.


                  1. Is Chance Raspberry an animator on The Simpsons?

                  -Here's an interview from 2009 with him, showing pencil tests from The Simpsons.

                  -Here's an announcement from 2006 of his getting that job on The Simpsons.

                  -We can see that this is the same guy who is in the videos posted in the OP. So to confirm Chance Raspberry is an animator on The Simpsons the only other vetting I can think of is watch the credits in the episodes listed on his imdb entry and confirm he's there. (anybody can edit imdb, just like wikipedia) I'm at work so can't now but maybe I will later, or somebody else can.


                  2. Is the kickstarter campaign really from Chance Raspberry?

                  -It's really comprehensive, doesn't look like some fly-by-night thing.

                  -It links back to his site, and his site links to it.

                  -Here's an announcement and a forum thread about the campaign.


                  3. Is the poster of this thread Chance Raspberry?

                  -He gives the same email address as on the website.

                  -Who cares? There is nothing here that would benefit anybody else.


                  Little Billy looks annoying (imho) but pending review of the credits in "Them, Robot", "The Ned-liest Catch", "500 Keys", the movie, etc. yeah, I think this guy is for real.

                  I am very tired of typing and thinking "Chance Raspberry" now.

                    This far into the 21st century and I'm surprised that we're not seeing a lot more from independent artists. While I'm not sure that Retro Junk is the proper place for a Kickstart campaign I do acknowledge that the future of animation means access and interaction on a scale the 20th century could not imagine.

                    You guys are already able to correspond with the future top animators of 2020 and beyond. Not one Disney, but a hundred Disneys of the future. Even if Little Billy is not to your liking you are all venturing into a new world of animation coming at you from all directions.

                      I'm starting to think that maybe he is who he says he is.

                        I don't know eddstarr. No matter how many dingleberries post their bedroom creations on the youtube, we will not see a Snow White or even a Steamboat Willie from many of them. (Not talking about Little Billy--that is clearly dedication to craft, and I honestly haven't had a chance to properly watch it yet.) A lot of things are certainly more accessible now, which is great but that also increases the signal to noise ratio. Lots of Flash animators now making ugly, obnoxious, lazy, or boring things. I can't imagine too many Bill Plymptons among them.

                          Yeah, I hear ya! But there sure are a lot of real artists looking for a new career path using the latest tools of the trade at their disposal.

                          Everyone is hearing about new media and the hunger for more content. Change will only increase as entertainment morphs in ways I can't imagine. I will always love my old toons but I recognize that in the coming decades more and more people aren't looking back.

                            Thanks for the thorough background check, Steak. The OP may very will be Risk Watermelon, or one of his paid cronies to spam the show across every forum here to 4chan.


                            I think there are artists, and there are writers. Sometimes a great person is both. I think this guy can draw amazing, but probably doesn't have the writing skills yet to make a great toon. Either way he better respond back in this thread or I'm removing his links. No one's spamming this forum without giving me a kickdown!

                              or in this case, a kickstart, hint hint

                                  NP. So far, this is polite and better than bigaint2 (for instance), who used to post lots of threads about his crappy book and blog, pretending to be a fan and not admitting he was really the author. Or that jswift dumbass. At least this guy is not making multiple threads about the same thing. On the other hand RJ at its best is a community for discussion and sharing, not promoting one's self and running off never to return. I do like when there's more than like five posts in a day though.

                                        It still feels kind of weird that he only made one post thus far. He must a real busy guy.

                                          I don't think he has any interest at all in being part of the community, he's just advertising.
