The NinjAnimals Trading Cards
TEAM LIONEL Episode 1 The Animatic
As a child I dreamed of a fantastic world where people were animals and animals were dinosaurs. Where ninjas and samurai roamed wild in the streets and often battled each other just to see who was stronger. This was a strange and violent world, but also a world full of heroes who fought for truth.
I've worked with a number of great artists Shunsuke Baba, James Esparza, Rachel Z, Nate D, Ben L, and David K to develop this fantastical world. It's all come down to this; the TEAM LIONEL episode 1 Animatic, which is a rough blueprint of how the animation will move and flow telling the story. NinjAnimals studios has worked hard to bring you this animatic; it was a labor of love.
"Team Lionel" is an action adventure story about Lionel Lee, prince of the Lionel Kingdom, as he assembles a team of mighty ninja warriors. He does this so that he can embark on an epic mission to vanquish all evil. The first episode introduces many of the major characters of the story; Lee, Quatro, Jico, Kai, and Feng. Lionel Lee loves to fight, but only because whenever he fights evil people, he beats them up so badly that they turn into good people like himself. Quite simply, he is a hero for justice.
We're determined to compete this cartoon so that it may bring so much joy to you and your children. We'd love for you to help us with funding because it just means we can finish up this episode that much faster. You see, with your generous support we can hire more animators to help us, allowing us to complete the episode in half the time or quicker!
