Avery Ant & his One Minute Series Design
Avery Ant and his One Minute Rant is a series of interstitials
about an everyday "proletariant" who's made it
big but still hasn't lost his edge. It's like the ant said at the
top of the page - he's got issues: And they're about everything.
Pick a subject, any subject, and get ready as Avery comes charging
in with his own "opinions." His amusingly cynical take
on life and all its complications is not only funny, biting, stinging,
half-baked, just plain wrong, kind of weird, incoherent, and bang-on
hilarious: The whole thing only takes a minute.
In each episode of Avery Ant and his One Minute Rant, our
disgruntled host will be telling you about what bugs him. These
one-minute comic monologues will play out like a standup comedy
routine and a stream of conscious rant as performed by one PO'd
pismire. Avery will start in on one particular subject that he's
annoyed with, and from there he'll segue into new topics that are
bound to blow his stack. From there, he'll jump into a subject that
really ticks him off. In each minute segment, he'll offer his very
unique and quite frank opinions on everyday life to anything else.
Expect a very funny ant rant! There are no flashy sets or secondary
characters. There is however, a Big Hand that occasionally
jumps into the picture with a stopwatch, a la 60 Minutes.
It's there to remind Avery that he's running out of airtime.
Avery has little love for his antagonist, the Big Hand. He feels
he deserves more exposure, and the Big Hand is a constant reminder
that his one minute of fame is an insult. The Big Hand in turn doesn't
seem to think much of him, and sometimes retaliates to Avery's punches
and vilifying by trying to crush him. The Big Hand will provide
a Real Time concept to the show. The combination of stop-motion
Ant and really Big Hand will add to the show's simple but distinct
and stylish look.
As for sets, well, there aren't any. Okay, there's one. Avery is
shot against a red brick wall. However, complimentary juxtasposing images will be intercut to support and contradict what Avery is saying, this will add visual flair to an already cool-looking, stop-motion animated television show.And when you're as vitriolic,
acerbic, and full of comic indignation as Avery Ant, the comedy
is in the stories and the delivery. And fancy sets are for cockroaches.
It's a fun-filled minute of diatribe, disbelief, keen observation,
misguided information, and a candid look at the anthill that we're
all trying to climb. For the next minute, Avery Ant is gonna rant
like no other ant, and he'll be ranting for all of us.
