BlastOff! is a pilot for an upcoming 3D animated
web series where each night while a child sleeps in his BlastOff!
Bed, his toy alien comes to life and flies through various
space adventures. This 3-minute pilot webisode shows the
BlastOff! Bed being constructed and its maiden voyage.
BlastOff! tells the story of how the worlds of
reality and fantasy easily blend together in the fertile
imagination of a young child, especially when supplied with
creative toys and environments. The story begins at dawn
with a child’s wishful drawing of a space ship. During
the day his father builds him a custom designed space shuttle
bed and fills his room with toys. As the sun sets, one of
the child’s toys, a little green alien, comes to life
and is excited pretending to pilot the space ship. As his
imagination soon takes over completely, the room fades away
and the shuttle bed blasts the little alien out into space
for a wild rocket ship ride through the rings of Saturn.
The alien finally comes crashing back to reality as the child
returns home to find his room is a complete mess.
BlastOff! sets the mood for adventure with a superb
custom musical score by Adam
I’d love to hear what you think of my first 3D animated
short film BlastOff!, so please submit a BlastOff! Feedback
