Banksy storyboards Simpsons intro

Post by nick on Mon Oct 11, 2010 4:37 pm



UK graffiti artist Banksy has created a controversial title sequence for long-running US animation The Simpsons.

Ripped from BBC site:
The intro, which was shown in the US on Sunday, opens with the street artist's tag scrawled across the town of Springfield.

It closes with a minute-long sequence showing dozens of sweatshop workers in a warehouse painting cartoon cells and making Simpsons merchandise.

The episode, called MoneyBart, will be shown in the UK on 21 October.

It is the first time an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show.

The extended sequence was apparently inspired by reports the show outsources the bulk of their animation to a company in South Korea.

Delays and disputes

It features Bart Simpson with his face covered as he writes all over his classroom walls.

While in the sweatshop, kittens are thrown into a wood chipper so their fur can be used to stuff Bart Simpson dolls and a chained unicorn is used to punch holes in Simpsons DVDs.

According to the street artist, his storyboard led to delays, disputes over broadcast standards and a threatened walk out by the animation department.

"This is what you get when you outsource," joked The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean.

20th Century Fox had the into taken down from youtube, as usual with any of their precious content, but the BBC have the full length version ready to view: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11510513

Hi Nick,

The power of Fox is everywhere. Looks like its pulled from the BBC too. Shame I would like to have seen that. Interesting story. Sweat shops, one of my all time greatest hates. They exist because of our insatiable want of cut price bargins and glut of consumer everything. Dont get me started on supermarket cloths and throw away appliances.
