United Kingdom animation producer, Mark Stobbart is running an animated football-related parodies channel called 4-4-2oons, producing gut-busting World Cup videos every week.

No Other Software Can Deliver Like CrazyTalk Animator 2
When animating concurrent events, it’s no wonder why many animators shy away from the production nightmares that daily animation entails, with creation logistics that only powerhouse studios can afford — but not Mark Stobbart who has unlocked the secret of weekly, almost daily, animation thanks to the muscle of CrazyTalk Animator 2.
Mark originally trained as an actor and voiceover artist in London, having no previous experience in animation. But being a massive fan of animated comedy, and football had motivated him to combine the best of both worlds producing 442oons as a channel that is all about poking fun at the football world.
“No-one is safe!” – says Mark. “Ideas, scripting, voicing, singing, editing, most artwork, animating, production and publication are all done by me – as well as promoting the channel!”
“Being a one-man-army has its merits as it helps me make my animation dreams come true by leveraging CrazyTalk Animator’s clear advantages like being easy to learn, having customizable characters, fast production and high quality output. CrazyTalk Animator provides a quicker way to get my story and ideas animated and this is the secret that allows me to produce animated videos every day. I also love how easy it is to create customized characters with unique personalities. It helps a lot when I create players that look like real football players in my FIFA animations. During the 2014 World Cup, I have produced around 70 unique characters for 32 teams in total. The latest 2 minute video took only around 8 hours – this was very quick because I could recycle two characters and props that I had already created for earlier videos. It was worth it in the end, and the quality of the final video is so rewarding when I watch it back.” – explains Mark Stobbart.
