UPDATE: I uploaded the animated bit I did of the opening storyboard I did if you guys wanna see. [link]
This is why I am not an animator
So about a year and a half ago I was heavily invested in creating a pitch for a "Jem and the Holograms" remake. I had met lots of industry folks who worked (or had in the past) for Hasbro and offered me advice on how to go about it. As far as I'm aware, they received an e-mail from me a year ago with a couple small preview images of my redesigns but I got no response. I'm putting them up here now because I've decided to shelve the project.
As much as I would love (and still would love) to work on a Jem television show I realize just one person can't make it happen. I also realize the internet is a very valuable tool when it comes to things like this, so if you like my designs, or if you just want a Jem remake in general, you should write to Hasbro and tell them to produce more female-property shows. Ponies are great but that shouldn't be the one exception on their list.
Hasbro once again has the full rights to Jem and the Holograms, and now they've been airing the old show on The Hub; they're rebuilding a fanbase, and now have the power to make more dolls. Hasbro needs only to make the decision to revive the franchise and it can be done.
This project has been a labor of love for me so I don't necessarily expect it to go anywhere, but I hope that maybe Hasbro will realize that there is a lot of potential for female shows (especially after the success of MLP:FIM), and that a good deal of people would be interested in seeing Jem reinvented.
Wow, I can't believe you read this far. How totally outrageous!
And so to keep this cohesive, these are the pitch Jem designs I did: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]
