JOEY CAPPS / Abinormal! / 6:00
”Abinormal!” has been a concept I’ve been sitting on for a while now. I’ve always been terrified of ‘The Exorcist’, so at the most basic level I think this was a cathartic experience for me. Secondly I guess I always just wondered, what if Linda Blair was never cured of her “condition”. What if that little girl just had to brush off the vomit and deal with it. Go to school, hang with friends, try and lead a normal life. I thought that’d be funny lol. It was a lot of fun making this film, challenging myself, and I am really please with how it came out.I had a lot of help in the making of this short. Lots of fellow Titmice helped make this possible, starting foremost with Tom Soulen. Tom’s a BG and Storyboard Artist here in NYC. He’s a machine, and did an unbelievable job creating all the BG’s for my film. Along with the help of Mike Carlo, Yuri Fain, Aaron Brewer, Tim Prendergast of Titmouse, and Danny Hynes of Cartoon Network, the animation is more than I could have ever imagined.
Storyboards were done by Richard “DICKO” Mather, and he really was able to transform my script into reality, and I can’t thank him enough for that. Elliott Byrne lent a hand in Color Design for the film. He took my idea and put it in a color pallet I would have never in a million years thought of on my own. He really locked it down for me, and is a huge part of what makes it feel cohesive to me.
And finally the cast of voice actors (ALL TITMICE) from Deena Beck staring as Abigail, Tim Prendergast as Bobby, Aaron Brewer as Harrison, Rachel Gitlevich as Becca, and Nathalie Magri as Sam…I couldn’t have lucked out with a more talented crew. It’s everyone who made this possible. So as long winded as this blurb is, I cant for a second take all the credit. It was all of us, So thanks to everyone!
