Monty: The Musical (Reprise)

So Chair Moorshead found "Finals Week" after asking me to show a small tour group an example of some Flash work I'd done. I'd never even spoken to the guy before, aside from one brief time earlier in the quarter when he caught me snoozing on the fourth floor landing out in the stairwell.

I have now been summoned to appear in court before Paula Wallace to defend myself against expulsion on the grounds of the defamation of a SCAD building without prior consent of the school executives.

Just kidding. He liked it a lot and wants to see more.

I have been thinking about expansion so far and I have been doodling, too, but if I'm going to do anything about it, it's going to be a big endeavor getting a full-length musical at all. The title's been changed to Monty! The Musical and it now revolves around the heartwrenching tale of a building who wants to become a traditional 2D animator but doesn't have any arms or legs. Not quite sure how "Finals Week" would fit into it just yet, but I'll think of something.

What I'd really like to do is think up a musical number that would feature Monty himself. I did have something in mind about two years ago--an angsty emo song where Monty decides to throw a massive tantrum and crash all of the computers, one of those "NOBODY UNDERSTANDS ME" deals. Now, at least, he has some kind of motive behind the madness. I'll be employing the goofy face from Montgomery Hall's facebook profile to do most of the singing. It should be hilarious, especially if I get him smashing stuff with his rafters and locking people inside and whacking people in the head with projectors.

Shoot, I'd need a male singing voice too.
