A new short form animated series from Adult Swim Smalls launched today, revealing what goes on behind the cubicle walls in a very literal, corporate take on the Infinite Monkey Theorem: The Hamlet Factory.
Co-created by comedians Jeremy Kaplowitz (Hard Drive) and Phil Jamesson, the 2D animated series is set at the office where infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters try to write Hamlet, all whilst suffering the slings and arrows of the 9-5 grind.
Kaplowitz and Jamesson also provide voices for the series, alongside fellow comedians SungWon Cho, Alyssa Limperis, Natalie Walker, Kylie Brakeman and Tom Walker. L.A.-based artist and animator Jackie Gorman (Solar Opposites) handled all the design and animation.
all art and animation– that’s right, ALL of it– done by the extremely skilled @drawckie. she turned our (often inscrutable) basic ideas into real art
