Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait…wait…I don’t understand.
@thebigbadshadowman, do you mean to say you never saw the original stargate?December 23, 2016 at 8:46 pm #55411

It’s ok, that film turned into the 3 hour tour that left the cast forever stranded.
Still I liked the designs of the alien equipment. That design team never disappointed me in any of their filmsDecember 26, 2016 at 7:21 am #55414
So the new lightning dogs is out and i have one point
@cap if hear the words Indian jones, area 51, and warehouse in any more lightning dog continuity, even though i am not a producer i am pulling the plug cause you all would have gone crazy.
Love to hear you are deciding to stay focused on one part, was getting dizzy during your world building sessions. I know thats how it works but when you have no steering control of the conversation it’s like getting carsick when riding shotgun.
Keep those imagin gears lubed
Last point: love the idea of Glampire reconstructing his palaces or whatever in the design of his home planet. Or is he responsible for a stylish look of pre-cataclysmic earth? Is he responsible for the goth look or whatever?December 26, 2016 at 10:26 pm #55417
@pseery80 You’ve lost me. What’s the cliff we’ll have to have jumped from to be crazy? I thought we were already there.
Anyone else getting psychic whiplash from these discussions? Should we engineer more breathers and catch up points into the documentary format?
We don’t have a final design for Glampire’s base. Likely we’ll settle on a design and then explain why it is the way it is after the fact. How much of a leftover from the world before it’ll be, etc. etc. is still very much in the air since we’re ultimately deciding by what looks coolest.December 26, 2016 at 11:58 pm #55426
Please forgive that comment
tony gave a point as to where the lightning dogs could be based, area 51.
Then Doug brought up Indian Jones about something entirely different and my head started making unnecessary connections.
Bottom line, the last Jones was terrible
I doubt anyone else was getting whiplashed, I don’t have the patience for in-depth world building discussions, all mine are internal and when you jump from one section to the next I am slow to keep up.
You’re doing fine
Anyway, one point I want to being up. What were you wanting to present at your upcoming meeting with Greg wiesmen?
Bios, concept art, a full summary of the first 3 seasons?December 27, 2016 at 1:55 pm #55428
since it’s the holiday season, do the Lightning Dogs have any holidays they celebrate

This is a great question. I definitely think they’d have a holiday based on the ending of “The Great War.” Pretty much exactly what Armistice Day is, I suppose. And surely they’ll have winter and summer holidays, but I have no idea what they’d be like. On one hand, it’d be entertaining for them to “discover” Christmas while on Earth and put their own twist on it, but on the other hand, it’d be tough to balance an episode like that without coming off as pandering or possibly offensive.

Hooo yeah. We definitely need to explore dog holidays at some point. That sounds like a dedicated culture brainstorming session that needs to happen.
As for Armadon’s question about what we’re gonna show to Weisman, the pitch bible will be an outline of the premise and tone, overview of the characters, the vehicles, outline of the first season with episode descriptions, and as much final concept art we’ve got. See a recent post of mine for where we are with all that.December 28, 2016 at 1:37 pm #55435
nice @Doug I can see it, them discover Christmas after the last week Novemder when W.O.L.F. starts playing Christmas music out of the blue

With you guys wanting to make Lightning Dogs an all ages show, what would be the level of violence in Lightning Dogs if you guys would compare it to other cartoons?

Legend of Korra is a fair benchmark, I’d say. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen it, so I’m hard-pressed to remember a time when I saw someone’s limbs get dislocated or blood… but I’m sure it happened… right?
Basically that’s our limits, violence-wise. Granted, if Adult Swim or another outlet where the time slot/ distribution purposely excludes younger viewers showed genuine interest, we wouldn’t shy away from making it more adult. Ideally I view it as all-ages though. I think it would be a refreshing change of pace.January 4, 2017 at 1:14 pm #55543
I haven’t seen Legend of Korra, but I do know the level of violence in it.

That is an interesting point.
Animated violence levels.
In the 80s with action shows like GI joe, silverhawks, transformers, thundercats. light action like He-man, joyce and the wheelies, gummie bears.
90s action with batman, superman, x-men, gargoyles, that silly dog cartoon
000s which i wasn’t into many but both thundercats and heman got reboots. But we also got clone wars. Light action like avatar.
In 80s action no one died. Cobra pilots had parachutes. In clone wars you killed off the disposable soldiers and no one cared.
90s action someone died off screen
I am going all over the place with this but there is a point in there somewhereJanuary 5, 2017 at 1:53 pm #55553MaxParticipant
Blood and character death were usually reserved for the theatrical tie-in products back in the day, as when Serpentor grabbed a snake and petrified it into a javelin which he then used to harpoon Duke:
