Nickelodeon's Punk Rock Angel Girl

Punk Rock Angel Girl an animated pilot for a show conceived by the musical artist Jewel. It’s the story of a band, fronted by Punk Rock Angel Girl. The band plays super hip music and fights nasty robots that work for an evil corporation.

The two-minute show is for Nickelodeon and features Jewel’s voice (especially her yodeling) and of course her music.

The show was animated in Flash by director JP Dillard and his company Funkmation and produced by Nikon Kwayntu, from Kali Raw Productions.

They desperately needed a facility that could stylishly take their excellent work another notch at the right price. This included After Effects, Compositing and Sound Design. They found their post-production home at American Montage, Inc.

AMI’s ability to produce on time and on budget, not to mention their history with animation made this a perfect fit. The pilot highlights the outstanding special FX and post-production work from American Montage’s Joe Piazzo and Eric Marciano as well as sound design by product msd.

The pilot will be aired on the web and for broadcast on Nickelodeon in Fall, 2006.

PBS's Elmo's World

During every segment of "Elmo's World" on Sesame Street there is a section devoted to explaining an idea or concept to young children. It happens on a television set that magically appears just when Elmo wonders how something came to be or how something works. This is how the Baby Channel, Farm Channel, Hair Channel and many others came to be.

These humorous and engaging segments are the work of animation maestro Joe Ahlbum of Ahlbum Animation. Joe comes to American Montage with Andrea Martin's hilarious voice over tracks. AMI then test edit the storyboards, edits the sound if necessary, adjusts the pencil test into synchronization, and completes the post-production. When it's perfect, it's sent to Children's Television Workshop to be broadcast around the world.
