I did all the art work for the sales kit on animation cels with ink, paint, photo-montage and collage. Worked my brains off on it, too. Ultimately the series didn't achieve lift-off - - though GOOWINS BALLOOWINS did! (http://bugsandballoons.com/).
Sometimes getting there is half the fun.
Just stumbled upon the art, posted below. Each scene represents a different function of listening and hearing.
Double-U Tee Eff? EL-OH-EL!
Here are Allynn's memories of THE ORIGIN OF SOUND TRAK - - or - - We Worked On A TV Series Together And All I Got Was These Drawings.
After doing my cable tv show for a few seasons, I figured it would be good to have a message... and since I studied (and believed in) Speech... hey why not a tv series on it. At that point I thought about Annie Siedler... she had been my main Speech teacher in college (Montclair State College - now "University", in NJ). For my final exam rather than write the information about Speech correction... I had an inspiration and wrote a Fairy Tale using the Speech Problems and corrections as good Knights and monsters. She gave me an "A"... it turned out (I didn't know at the time) she had written a successful children's speech correction book - "The Hungry Thing". We've been friends ever since.
I mentioned the idea of this tv series to her and she wanted to work on it with me. After we worked on an outline, she felt it was a good time to bring in her writing partner... Jan Slepian. Ann and Jan wrote a couple books together and jan has written a number of books on her own. We met a few times before i said we should bring you guys aboard ... since they had the book writing experience and you had the puppetry and tv background (where did I fit in?).Then we all worked on it for some good time/s....
We submitted the project to several places... Jan had a friendship with Maurice Sendak... I had met some tv producers in classes I had taken... you had your connections.....My memory was that the best reaction was that they liked the proposal, but they were looking for minority shows.
That's my memory.Allynn
