‘Hazbin Hotel’ fans petition
Adult animated series and YouTube sensation “Hazbin Hotel” has been picked up by production company A24. This news comes only a few months after the 30-minute pilot episode was uploaded to Medrano’s channel Vivziepop back in October 2019, with over 40 million views since then. Petitions all across the internet began popping up demanding that it become a full series as soon as possible because viewers loved this show so much!
“Hazbin Hotel” is a series created, directed, and produced by Vincent Medrano. The animation in the show has an incredible fluidity that will amaze you with its cleanliness. Fans of dark comedies like “The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy” or “Invader Zim” should find themselves right at home watching this latest release from Medrano Productions.
The show itself is a strange but wonderful mix of adult jokes and musical numbers. The main character Charlotte, or “Charlie,” is the princess of Hell. She’s attempting to start a hotel where residents on hell can stay in an attempt to rehabilitate themselves enough so they could make it into Heaven one day.
As theological as this premise sounds, don’t worry–this isn’t your typical kids’ cartoon series with cute animals getting along happily ever after! Excessive cursing throughout the pilot episode made me chuckle, while dirty jokes and drug references were also present without shame. Meanwhile, music played from time to time that added some great flavor for viewers like myself who enjoy all entertainment genres – even if I might not have enjoyed it.
The one-off special titled “Helluva Boss” is a 10-minute in-universe spin-off of “Hazbin Hotel.” The show follows an addict trying to cope with the withdrawal from her addiction. Through excellent writing and animation skills, Medrano has created other even shorter videos such as the fully animated music video Addict to hype up for more content she’ll be creating soon.”
A24 is a production company that has become known for its edgy, lesser-known series and films. The studio may be the perfect company to introduce “Hazbin Hotel” — a critically acclaimed comedy about an all-black hotel with inhabitants ranging from ghosts of former guests to employees who their own family members have cursed–to television audiences everywhere.
53 million YouTube viewers The Creator of ‘Hazbin Hotel’ says never predicted its success.
The princess of hell sees the demons suffering around her and has an idea — to rehabilitate these sinners in a hotel. “Hazbin Hotel” is about, which was created by Vivienne Medrano or VivziePop with friends who are fellow animators. The premise pulled 54 million views on YouTube before being picked up by production company A24, sparking spin-off series including “Helluva Boss.”
The show has been growing in popularity and is now the most talked about topic on social media. After watching 30-minutes of “Famous In Love,” I was hooked!
After bingeing all 10 episodes, this Netflix Original series left me with a sense that Hollywood really does know best because they cast some pretty talented actors for their TV debut into the film.
Leah Medrano was captivated by animation when she saw her first simple drawing come to life on the screen. As a third-grader, Leah’s class gave her access to an animation program with rudimentary tools like MS Paint, and after that day, she knew what would become of her future career choice: animating.
When it came time for college courses in art education at Florida State University (FSU), no classes were offered inside computer graphics or motion design; instead, FSU students had one option within “Illustration.”
With such limited resources available at FSU- where even basic 3D modeling software wasn’t used until recently-Medrano felt confined creatively because everything looked so flat – though this feeling only fueled Motivation as I graduated.
When Ella Medrano graduated from art school and made her own animated shorts, it was with the dream of creating an animated musical one day. Her work is characterized by sharp lines and bright colors that evoke unease in viewers drawn to its dark humor.
Medrano is not one to let challenges stand in the way of her creativity. When she first tried putting together a musical, it could be best described as an epic failure – but that’s all behind her now! She teamed up with a production company and invested both time and money into this project because, after investing so much energy in something only for it to turn out fruitless again, Medrano wanted “Hazbin Hotel” at least have some return on investment.
So far, things are going well: they’ve already raised upwards of $6 million through Kickstarter pledges alone; however, there is always room for improvement when you’re trying something new like this. Medrano isn’t afraid to push herself creatively.
“I never knew how to channel my love of musicals and theater into something I could show the world, but when it came down to it, Hazbin Hotel was always on my mind,” Medrano confesses. “For a long time, they were just characters in stories that only existed inside me- now they’re coming alive with all these amazing people.”
When the pilot was originally meant to be more of an adult comedy, it took six months for Medrano to write and two years for her team at Patchwork Studio. The project began in 2013 before finally being released on YouTube after 2 long years as a 30-minute teaser episode with only friends lending their voice talents.
It wasn’t until 2016 that she had enough audience and budget from teasers over that past couple of year’s worth time span where she hired outside help such as other animators who were attached because they wanted something new out there or just liked working on different projects than what would typically come up around town like music videos which is generally how most people pay rent these days; either way this show has been both creative.
“I definitely think Hazbin hit a chord with people; they are adult comedies with this sharp art style that doesn’t really resemble what most have come to expect from adult comedies,” Medrano said.
“They also have an element of drama and angst to them which come from my sensibilities.” Villains always appealed to her: she had fond memories of Batman’s eclectic Rogue’s Gallery and more serious fare like The Sopranos. Setting her projects in hell allowed her to explore the theology behind making bad guys – their motivations and attractions- while providing something new for viewers who were tired of seeing male fantasies on screen all day long.
Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss live (and die) on YouTube.
Vivziepop’s animations have always been on YouTube, but it hasn’t proven easy to keep them there. Now that she’s making “Helluva Boss,” a self-produced comedy series starring imps who will murder and maim humans for the right price, they’ve had to learn what you can do with certain platforms like YouTube.
For instance, nudity isn’t allowed, so if someone appears naked in an episode, their private parts need to be blurred out or covered up somehow (eek!). You also can’t swear too much because swearing triggers Youtube algorithms that might flag your videos as inappropriate, and people won’t see it again!
Finally, anything challenging needs its first 30 seconds free of any disturbing content, or else youtube will automatically place ads before.
“YouTube itself has not made it easy for animators,” Medrano said. “Right now, we are on YouTube because that’s the safest way to get the most eyes on it, but we aren’t working or being appreciated by them.” Three days after our interview, Medrano tweeted that YouTube had censored the latest episode of “Helluva Boss” in searches.
