Many of you may have seen JAWBREAKER on YouTube. Many of the comments were something like: “What the heck is this insane, out-of –this-world short piece of animation?!”
This project was done for a close friend of ours, a dynamite character designer and a terrific person, Phil Mendez ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0579084/ ). While developing and storyboarding East of the Sun: West of the Moon in 1982 Phil came knocking on the door with a proposal to produce a trailer for his concept TV series entitled “JAWBREAKER.” He had storyboarded an action-packed, 108 seconds for a high-quality animated presentation trailer to show to his German investors to finance the series. Any one on staff not working on East of the Sun : West of the Moon were assigned to work on the JAWBREAKER presentation. Though we and he loved the finished trailer, to this day the series was never green-lit for production. Yet it continues to collect views on YouTube.
