Orange, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/25/2015 --Because of his unique style which combines the gritty and dark with a sense of humor, stop motion animation artist Scott Shelden has been named Lead Artist at Bluemooner Studios. Bluemooner is currently creating the stop motion animation series, "Zacki Almost Saves The Zoo", and Scott has been the artist behind creating the character puppets for the series.
As production advances more artists will be brought on board. Bluemooner Studios wants to make sure the final production has a continuity of style. Executive Producer at Bluemooner, Robert Anderson, says Scott was made Lead Artist because, "His style took our concept off the page and into three dimensions. His creations excited us all, and really solidified the project. We want Scott to have full control of the look and feel of the characters and sets. He breathed life into our project."
"Zacki Almost Saves The Zoo" will tell the story of a boy who lives at the zoo and his battles with Martha, owner of a neighboring amusement park. Martha wants to take over the zoo and close it down so she can expand the park. Zacki discovers the rides in Martha's amusement park change the kids who ride them, turning them into mindless automatons. With the help of the animals in the zoo, Zacki tries to prevent Martha's takeover attempts and stop her mind-altering rides."
