02 BADLY DRAWN ANIMALS
2015



Created and directed by Hamish Steele

Starring Jeremy Shada, Lara Jill Miller and John DiMaggio

Nickelodeon
Ben and Pesto the Komodo Dragon are best buds and spend the days hanging out at the zoo. But when they uncover a plot to overthrow humanity from the other animals, they must actually do their job for once!



DEAD END caught the attention of the Nickelodeon Shorts Program and I was invited to pitch something.

BADLY DRAWN ANIMALS was a lot of fun to make - especially working with THE Finn & Jake, Jeremy Shada and John DiMaggio. But the production was rocky and slightly mismanaged, with our delivery date moved forward dramatically in the middle of animation. 

Despite all that, we made something I’m still proud of (and the title gives us a lot of leeway). The whole thing I was made in my bedroom before Working From Home was in the in thing. Nickelodeon invited me back to produce another short but this time, I was given a production company to work with.

Below are some character designs by me and screengrabs from the finished short.
