BOTUS: Buddies of the United States
BOTUS: BUDDIES OF THE UNITED STATES
Do you miss Barack Obama and Joe Biden? Then check out BOTUS! It’s an animated show following the adventures of the two greatest Buddies of United States — after the presidency.
Check out some of the select frames from our BOTUS storyboard below! From this stage, we created an animatic before jumping into animation.
BOTUS was conceived during a team breakfast at a diner with lots of mediocre coffee and hashbrowns. Below is the first “napkin sketch” of our two buddies, followed by background art for Joe’s secret treehouse hideout for best friends only: “The Thunderden”.
