Animation vets Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer have written five Metal Men DC Nation shorts animated at Augenblick Studios, the first of which debuts this Saturday ahead Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go!
Dorkin describes the shorts as each being “a minute and a half or so”, and while they’re all self-contained and can be watched in any order, “There is a sort of invisible continuity to them,” Dorkin wrote in a blog post. “Sarah and I referred to it as, ‘Birth, School, Work, Death’, and I guess ‘Destruction' could be slipped in there, along with ‘Goofiness’. Mostly goofiness, to be honest.”
Dorkin also designed the characters but blogs they were simplified since the design phase.
Here’s a preview of the first short:
