Now in Flash for better viewing, with original score by David Stanton!
We had the wonderful opportunity to work alongside a handful of talented graduating music majors from USC the past winter, and as a result Scalawags now has its own beautiful score composed by David Stanton. This makes Scalawags a completely original piece, ready for film festivals!
From concept to completion this project took us 11 weeks to produce. We spent four weeks in pre-production and five weeks animating and compositing. One week at the end to enjoy our pizza and watch the movie.
. . .And maybe do some post audio work.

This is amazing!! Everything is wonderful...the characters are so much like children and with the little games...and the animation is top of the line! You guys put all the little details into each child it is unbelievable!!! I just fell in love.
The music that went along with it all was incredible!
Now..all I can think of is cookies You all are so very talented. I have to show this off for more to see this! I am in love!!!
This is genius . At some parts I got a little confused because the audio is a little hard to understand at points, but that doesn't stop this from being just great, fun, and wholesome animation to watch .
David Stanton did indeed make a very fantastic and lively score - it really helps to make this short .
Thanks for the great ride - I'll be catching it again soon .
This felt like it easily could be a show on Nickleodeon or Cartoon Network, it was really flawless animation and the intro was spectacular. And the music was really cool too, gave it that pirate action movie feel, without being too dramatic or scary.
