EPISODE 1 - The Beginning of the End

Charmy's Army REDUX!!! Starting ALL Over!!!!

Time to start from the beginning. I have had a few readers ask me how the story of Charmy's Army all started. I have also wondered the same thing. I have played around with several theories and finally came up with the correct way to tell the origin of my comic strip. Over the next several months, we will explore the beginnings of Charmen Packy, Weaver Wood and Frenchy French.

I am also going to push myself really hard to provide artwork to rival my previous posts. I am taking one last serious run at my dream. All or nothing. I feel success is finally just around the corner. The hard work is finally gonna pay off. This strip is too good to be ignored much longer my the syndicates.

Time to Do Some Stripping

Leave a comment... No comments:

Okay, it's been a while. Time to start stripping again. I animated another 10 seconds of video this morning and though I am so very pleased with this project, I feel I haven't been supporting the core essential of my reader's needs. So I will begin stripping again.

I am going to take the readers of Charmy's Army back in time. We will go back to the very beginning of Charmen Packy's legacy. I have re-envisioned the tale of Fort Hill and made some slight changes. The comic strip is now bigger, stronger and better than ever.

Time to dedicate myself to my dream and get this website rolling!!!!

Charmy's Army the Comic Strip is Looking for Voice Talents

Leave a comment... No comments:

I am so VERY excited about my first animated cartoon!!! I only have 30 plus seconds done, but I am ready to tackle this project head on. The biggest obstacle is voice talents. I am providing Charmy, Blu and Doctor Van Doogle's voices... but I am in need of help now with the rest of the cast.


I have one guy recording some test vocals for Weaver. I should have his recordings this weekend. I am hoping that will take care of Weaver.

The big issue is Frenchy. She has to be extremely zany. Think Dot from the Animaniacs. 

If anyone wants to try out for Frenchy or Weaver, send me a short, 1 minute audio file. Use you smart phone to record a few lines. I'll include a section of the script in a second so you can chose a line or two from one of two scenes from "In and Out Burper". Email the recording to fugcheese@gmail.com.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do get chosen, there is no pay for your work at this time. I hope to place it online for sale via Amazon or iTunes. I will figure out a royalty deal before the real recording begins.

Here are two scenes. The first scene features Weaver and Charmy...


OPENING SCENE:
(Charmy and WeaverBar Fly #2 midway through)

Weaver:
Do you have  ANY manners whatsoever?

Charmy:
Burrrrp! Nope. None whatsoever. But what I do have is TERRIBLE indigestion. BURPPPP!!!!! Oo! Tastes like potted meat.

Weaver:
What the heck is wrong with you Charmy?!?

Charmy:
I think I’m sick…..

Weaver: (sarcastically)
Yeah… You’re sick alright….

Charmy:
Burrrrrrrrppppppp!!!!!!!!!

Weaver:
Did you eat something out of the norm today?

Charmy:
Nope, I ate out of the mess hall. BU-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-RPPPPPPP!!!!!!

Weaver:
Maybe you should see the camp doctor.

Charmy:
I rather just go see the nurse!

Weaver:
You need to be serious.

Charmy: (Serious Voice)
Okay… I seriously would rather see Nurse Heidi… BU-U-U-U-R-R-R-R-RPPPPP!
Gross. That one tasted like day old sardines.

Weaver:
That is so wrong Charmy.

Charmy:
Yes… yes you are right my dear, dear friend Weaver… It tastes more like week old clam chowder! BURRRPPPPPP!!!!!!!

Weaver:
Charmy, you need to see the doctor.

Charmy:
I don’t go to doctors. They always give you shots. The only shots I take come from this bar.
(Pounds chest like he has indigestion)
Burrrrp!!!!!
Doctors are evil blood thirsty vampires who suck the life right out of healthy patients just to fund their over the top lifestyle of golf, tropical cruises, fast cars and faster women. They pump you with pills you don’t need and bill your insurance company for thousands of dollars so they can pay off their mortgages and all those fast women. They are evil. Evil, evil evil!!!! I’ll never see a doctor!!!!! Never never never ever in a million years!!!!!!

(Enter Bar Fly #23)

Bar Fly #2:
Hello soldier. Wanna buy me a drink?

Charmy:
Burrrrrrrppppppp!!!!

Bar Fly #2: (as she leaves)
Pig!


Charmy: (Looking at Weaver)
Make me an appointment.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a scene with Frenchy...

SCENE 3: Mess Hall
(With Charmy, Blu and Frenchy)

Charmy:
Hello Blu! How are you doing this morning?

Blu:
Just as miserable as I was yesterday.

Charmy:
Burp!!!!

Blu:
Uh…. Are you alright Charmy?

Charmy:
I can’t stop burping. Weaver’s gonna  take me to the camp doctor later this afternoon.

Frenchy:
Doctor!!! Whoa!!!!!! Hold up there Charmy!!!!!! You don’t wanna see him!!!!!

Charmy:
I know!!!!!!!  BURP!!!!!!!! I’m afraid he’s gonna give me a shot. I am scared of needles.

Blu:
Me too. I drop like a sack of potatoes when I see a needle.

Charmy:
Burp!!!!!!

Frenchy:
Look, I think I can help. My uncle used to practice medicine on the side.

Charmy:
Really? On the side? Did he have a license?

Frenchy:
 Oh course he did. He drove a school bus for a living.

Charmy:
Burp!!!!!! What? No, I mean… was he a real doctor. Did he have a medical degree?

Frenchy:
 Uh, oh course not. Why would he be playing doctor on the side if he was a REAL doctor.

Charmy:
Yeah, of course.

Frenchy:
People said his practice was second to none. Or did they say his practice was seconds from one. It could be the latter because my uncle did live next door to a real doctor’s office… which came in handy on more than ONE occasion.

Charmy:
Burp!!!! Maybe I should just see the camp doctor.

Frenchy:
Don’t be silly. The camp doctor is a quack.

Charmy:
Burp!!!!! Can I get an appointment with your doctor today?

Frenchy: 
Ha! I doubt it!!! He only gets visitors on Wednesdays.

Charmy:
What? Visitors?

Frenchy:
Yeah, he’s in prison. The pen only allows visitors on Wednesdays.

Charmy:
Burp!!!! What’s he in prison for?

Frenchy:
Practicing medicine without a license. I think someone died.

Charmy:
Look, I’ll just take my chances with the camp doctor, BURP!!!

Frenchy:
No way! Look, I interned one summer for my Uncle’s practice. I am practically a nurse.

Charmy:
Okay, do you think you can cure me?

Frenchy:
Well of course…

Charmy:
Burp!!!! Okay, how?

Frenchy:
ACUPUNCTURE!
(Frenchy displays a hand full of needles)

(Blu drops to the floor)

Charmy: Burp!!!!! No needles!!!!

Frenchy: You’re no fun… Okay.  To my office!!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

My goal is to have this 12 minute animated short completed by the end of the summer. Gonna be hard... but I know I can do it!!!!
