Simpsons Halloween Special


Color comp (painted with cell vinyl on a cell) for Second Season of The Simpsons' Halloween Special.
I was the Color Supervisor and started up a new color department following Georgie's original Simpsons colors.
Cookie Tricarico painted most of our cells before 5 of us did the final color mark ups.
We used the Mac to color the main BGs, then marked up the characters, props, FX, backgrounds, layouts, and storyboard panels by hand for overseas to use for production.
The computer was too new and the colors didn't match the final cells. Digital ink and paint and the internet didn't exist yet.
We used tiny Macs and stored everything on floppy discs. Sometimes a disc would erase parts of itself. We lost an entire episode once....Stress!!
