Animated Antics: Bernie & Ges
And now, a note from Sanuk ambassador and antic enthusiast, Andrew Gesler:
Bernie is my Dawg! Haha, “Bernie and Ges” is a project Alex DePhillipo and I embarked on during the summer of 2012 with the infamous cartoonist known as, Drew Toonz. Ever since MTV had debuted the “Jersey Shore” Residents of this fine state have been the target of Snookie joke after freggin(insert Jersey accent) Snookie joke, and we just wanted to throw a little bit of our own comedy into the mix.
As for the characters, my rescue Pit Bull, Bernie was the perfect co-star/muse as the things he does on a daily basis fill my world full of laughter. Then we just added the ghost of a whale that washed up on my beach months before production commenced, the cast of the “Jersey Shore”, and the ever popular Governor Chris Christie, and Alex and I had a gut busting script in no time! I was privileged to watch, actor, Mike Anthony (the voice of Bernie) and Mike Spahr(multiple voices) bring their characters to life on screen to the digital art of Drew Toonz.. Punk Rock bands, TSOL and Jumpship, signed up and offered music for the soundtrack and played the world premiere at the House of Blues August of 2012.
That’s where things peaked for the moment while the Cartoon was shopped, (and is still being shopped) with intent to create more episodes. In the mean time, we threw Episode 1 on iTunes and we’re giving a portion of proceeds to local animal rescues like the one that saved my best friend Bernie. So if you’re looking for something different to watch in the action sports realm, download Bernie and Ges today. It’s only $2.99!
