In July I went to Montreal for the International Comedy Festival where our Stanford’s cartoon pilot was chosen from hundreds for the Final Five.
Steve Kramer, a former KC guy and comic, did the animation and it was a wild week. We presented our cartoon to a packed house on a Saturday and it was easily the best programming of the festival (if I do say so myself).
Even TJ Miller, who starred in a winning short comedy film, told us our project was the best of all three divisions – short comedy films, TV pilots and Web shows.
Sadly, there were not too many executives there that mattered from those studios, but we did get a web deal.
So Stanford’s, and all things related, is now running on HOT SPOT BROADCASTING. It’s a series set up for and paid for on YouTube. The programming starts today and you can go see all the shows at hotspotbroadcasting.com.
The middle piece is the new cartoon on Stanford’s with me interviewing Al Pacino for the part as – who else? – me in the King of Sting movie. Kramer does the voice of Pacino. He’s so damn talented.
Steve did all the animation and set up the edits on the other shows as well. Lots of work for not a ton of dough. Hopefully a lot of people will see it and we can progress. If not, it’s been fun.
You can see our original pilot, the new show, CRAIG IN PRISON FROM ABC in 1988 (nice clips, ha), Grandpa Benny and Stanford and Sons on camera, Also my 1992 TV interviews about the Champions Forever film with Ali and clips of my interviews with all the champions and more.
I think you’ll find it interesting and entertaining.
Every two weeks we’ll post another cartoon update and more Everything Stanford’s clips. Including my brothers and me us as kids (very funny), clips from my acting days with Sonny Landham and Frank Stallone in the “Billy LoneBear” film and much more.
Give it a spin.
