BlastOff! - A Pilot Webisode for a New Web Series

Read the BlastOff! One Sheet
Read the BlastOff! One Sheet

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! was inspired by the real BlastOff! Space Shuttle Bed that I designed and built for my son MJ when he was three and ready to graduate from his crib into a “big boy’s” bed. The story behind the design and construction of the original BlastOff! Bed was featured on HGTV’s new show Look What I Did!

The BlastOff! Special Edition DVD includes behind the scenes content on 3D character animation including director & animator commentaries, actual LightWave 3D files of props & sets from the film, and the making of the real BlastOff! Bed, including construction video and photos as well as a BlastOff! Bed Construction Guide which includes the actual construction plans that I used to build the original BlastOff! Bed.

BlastOff! sets the mood for adventure with a superb custom musical score by Adam DiTroia.

I’d love to hear what you think of my first 3D animated short film BlastOff!, so please submit a BlastOff! Feedback Form if you have any comments about it at all.
