HD pilot for PURGATORY PIZZA!
I’m the creator of the flash cartoon PURGATORY PIZZA! I came up with the idea for the show while working at a lot of random pizza places my whole life. I remember thinking to myself while I was moping up the floors one night “Man,… working at a pizza place is like Purgatory… Your not really doing that bad, your not really doing that good and you deffly aren’t going ANYWHERE anytime soon”. From there I came up with the concept and would draw these creatures in my math notebook to kill some time till lunch LOL
One of the first drawing, notice they had different names then
So I had this idea for a cartoon in the back of my head for years but I never really started trying to make it real till I was put into contact with Moving Box Studios! While I was a Bouncer at Pixel Lounge in Ithaca NY, I put up an art show called C-C-COMB BREAKER and was telling a friend how I had this crazy idea for a cartoon show about God’s unwanted animals that work at a pizza place, that is ran by an exiled demon ha. He told me that there was an animation studio in Ithaca and gave me their contact.
It started out with me giving Moving Box Studios art work in return for flash animation lessons ha. After awhile I got Moving Box to agree to produce my cartoon and help me create it. I got ahold of my Cousin Law Tarello who is an amazing actor and improv comedian to help me turn my idea into a written pilot. Together we co-wrote this first episode and Law also did the voice acting for Grim, Croaker, Juan, and Scott! So from there me and Moving Box Flash Animator Chris Davidson worked in the studio until it was sinked up and finished. I poured a ton of work into it. I hand drew and scanned every drawing in the cartoon (there are over 500 different drawings in the pilot) and did all of the character animations. I even voiced Big T who is pretty much based on me LOL
I uploaded PURGATORY PIZZA onto Newgrounds.com and it won daily feature and was placed on the front page for over a week! It currently has over 60,000 views! If your alreafy a fan don’t worry I’m planing on making MORE PURGATORY PIZZA EPISODES!
