Jeremy posted an incredible cue from the Book 2 finale. I can’t express how grateful I am to be able to work with this immensely, uniquely talented composer, and to call him a close friend. I was in the kitchen of the Nickelodeon studios yesterday and the second episode of Avatar was playing on Nicktoons. I hadn’t seen it in a long time, and as much as I love ALL of the music he did for Avatar, it was incredible to hear just how far Jeremy’s scores have come since then. I think this cue, “Jinora’s Light,” is a perfect example of the sublime subtlety and reserved confidence that permeates his work now.
Hey! So on Friday at 8pm, Nick will be airing my favorite episode that I directed for Book 2, “Night Of A Thousand Stars,” written by Josh Hamilton. It’s Bolin-centric, which is probably why it’s my favorite. It’s going to air as part of an hour block with “Harmonic Convergence,” written by Tim Hedrick and directed by Ian Graham, but I didn’t have anything to do with that. You should watch that one, too, though.
So! To celebrate the airing of my favorite episode, I’d like to have a little contest. I’m going to post three weird drawings that I did for the animatic version of the show. You post screen caps of the actual beautiful Mir animation that resulted from these weird drawings, and I’ll email you a drawing of your favorite Korra character signed (digitally, in photoshop) by as many of my coworkers that I can coerce. Tag #NOATS or #cbheck or #colin heck in your post and I’ll see it. I’ll only do one drawing per character (so for example, anybody that requests Bolin will get the same Bolin drawing), but I’ll personalize each one when I send it somehow. Clear enough? No? Here we go anyway!
Here’s Edgar Allan Poe
BOLIN SEES INTO YOU
I don’t get why people think Unalaq’s evil. Look at how happy he is!
There you go! Screen cap away! Enjoy the episode and the rest of the season!
