SVA alumnus Chris Prynoski’s (BFA 1994 Film, Video and Animation) was featured on the Wired magazine blog GeekDad recently for his new animated series, Motorcity, which debuts on Disney XD on April 30. Prynoski’s studio Titmouse Inc. has worked on projects such as Avatar: The Last Airbender and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and he was featured in the SVA exhibit, “Which Way Did They Go?,” which showcased the work of alumni who have created some of animation’s most memorable images.
Motorcity tells the tale of Abraham Kane, overlord of the futuristic, high-tech city of Detroit Deluxe and the Burner gang who fight against his plans to destroy and re-develop it. “Kane hates cars and everything they represent,” Prynoski told GeekDad. “They’ve been forgotten over the years, and they’re illegal, but because this is set in Detroit, there are old car factories and car parts, and [the Burners] can build these cars and fight. It’s kind of like the new Battlestar Galactica … where they pulled all the ships’ [computers] offline. Because cars are essentially mechanical, Kane doesn’t have the ability to tap into them.”
