INTRODUCING OLIVER AND TROUBLE

 IT'S THE TRUTH! The "little voices" in your head are real! No. You're not crazy...well, maybe you are, but the voices that most people hear are actually Oliver and Trouble, two boundless beings who act as our conscience and help keep us on the proverbial path. Oliver is a purebred troublemaker with a lot on his mind...and he's guaranteed to make a mess if you let him. Trouble is combative, belligerent and works solely to the opposite of whatever Oliver does. They are on opposite ends of the spectrum from one another who just so happen to be best friends?

Oliver and Trouble have existed since the beginning of time. They have both, nurtured and hindered the lives of all manner of humans, and because they can only be seen when they wish to be, they can pretty much get away with anything. Got an idea? You can bet your hat that one of these two is gunning to make waves in your decision making process.

They are the only two of their kind. Beyond that, they are every bit the same as us. From Monday to Friday, they are on the job, working hard for their respective efforts.

This is the premise of the Oliver and Trouble comic. Two characters invented to create laughter and offer a smile. Very much in the spirit of "good versus evil", these two go all-out to impact us, for better or worse, often resulting in our being entertained. They can create utter mayhem against each other...but in a way that makes it easy for US to enjoy.

 

Live, love and laugh.

OLIVER AND TROUBLE SAVE/DESTROY THE WORLD

Oliver and Trouble are pitted against one another in a daily battle to outdo the other's best efforts to create problems! Oliver has a plan to cause you some torment, but Trouble is no slouch when it comes to facing off against Oliver. They are utterly entangled in the simple task of making each other's lives difficult. Every week we wonder who will come out on top...and who will endure! Oliver and Trouble are on duty...which means that you and I better stay on our toes! Hey, that sounds like it might be an interesting movie!

BETWEEN THE PAGES

As a small but wildly popular web-comic series, Oliver and Trouble has a fan following that demand a good story. A lot of work that goes on behind the scenes long before anything is released to the public. From writing unique and entertaining stories, to promoting events and creating sponsorship opportunities, to the graphic layout and distribution, each step requires talent and a dedicated effort to make the comic come together every single week. The comic story is written first, then the plot is tuned for comic panels, edited for content, laid out in storyboard form to make the most of the space available, built in 3D, rendered and finally assembled before distribution. Within those five little squares, there are about 30-40 hours of actual work that takes place before you see the final publication. Take a moment and see all production stages, and as always, thanks for being a Troublemaker!

DESIGN AND PLANNING

It's no exaggeration to say that there is three times the amount of work here than any other part of the process. The design and prep team are tasked with making the financial and structural plans to make sure that the comic can continue each week. Without them, there would be no comic.

STORYTELLING

The core of any entertainment medium is the story. Storytelling is an art form far beyond just putting pen to paper. It's building a defined world and providing good character definition to engage the reader. Without writing, Oliver and Trouble would simply be cute faces with no voice.

STORYBOARDS

Storyboarding is the art of telling a visual story that makes the best use of the limited space we have to publish the comic. Some comic sites will allow for much larger stories with more development, but in the spirit of continuity, we publish the same content across five different platforms, and every frame counts.

PROMOTIONAL

This is a new part of the process for Oliver and Trouble. The promotional team helps to reach out to new readers and refine the distribution options. More people find the comic through our own promotion than any other means.

FINAL EDITING AND ASSEMBLY

Editing is the final stage before the artwork is assembled, titled and distributed. Content editors make certain that legal clearances and publishing content meets our strict standards and then the final comic is assembled and published.

DISTRIBUTION

Put very simply, distribution is the team that makes sure that the comic meets publication deadlines and maintains the quality of the original work so that Oliver and Trouble are where you expect them to be, when you expect them.
