Comedy Central: Trip Tank

Pipsqueak Animation provided lip sync animation for a whole slew of shorts for Comedy Central’s hit show, Trip Tank, including some of the initial “Jeff & Some Aliens” shorts and “Suck It Gary.”

These shots might look odd, but this is how the animation process starts for many shows! When we do lip sync, we are the first stop in the animation pipeline. We use the storyboards and audio track to animate all lip flap and every head turn and then pass it on to another studio to complete the animation process. Shows may have dozens to hundreds of shots that need to be animated. Fun but tiring!
