Hero Q/A: Trevor Wall

Hero Q/A: Trevor Wall

Now meet our favorite hero behind the scenes, Trevor Wall. In this interview, Trevor reveals the awesome perks of being Hero: 108's animation director, and why drawing is really hard.

Define the word "hero" in your own words?

A hero to me is someone who lives their life with the intention to do good for others. People who don't think twice about lending a hand or helping. Someone who has the courage to face challenges in their life, everyday, regardless of the outcome.

Any cool perks to being Hero: 108's animation director?

Meeting and working with talented artists around the world. I got a chance to work with artists in Taiwan, China, Korea, The Philippines, Italy and Ireland. It was truly a global production. A special perk for me was being able to get to know the Chinese culture a little more. Working with the designers in Taiwan also taught me a new sensibility of a unique style.

How is Hero: 108 different from other animated series you have worked on?

A lot of the time projects are handed to you with a style that is derivative of something else. Hero 108 is a unique style in the terms of design and storytelling. We went with a way that since the series takes place in a magical kingdom, not everything had to be logical. We never tried to over explain everything to kids, we let the action and visuals tell our stories focusing on what will keep kids interested and not want to change the channel. The mutual respect among the artists and the
respect we showed for our characters in the series is what drove this project.

Hero: 108 has a unique hard-edged artistic drawing style, but you make it look easy. Was it always easy for you?

Nothing is easy especially drawing. Since this series had a special style, I did find myself being challenged at times. A type of struggle that every artist working on a fresh/new series goes through. Luckily we have such a crack team of designers in Taiwan that provided us with so much useful information on the style of the show. They put so much hard work into this series that it did make it a lot easier for all of us.

If you had to bring peace between humans and animals, who would be in your First Squad?

My son Jack for his abstract humor. He comes up with ideas that only a child with boundless imagination would come up with. And my other son Logan for peacemaking abilities. My boys inspire me everyday. They are truly my heroes.

Thanks, Trevor! To see more of Trevor's amazing artwork skills, visit his website at If you want to learn how to draw like Trevor, then you are in luck... stay tuned for top secret sketching tips!

Hero Q/A: Bill Schultz

Hero Q/A: Bill Schultz

With Hero: 108 bringing a whole new season of awesomeness to Cartoon Network in January, we just can't keep our mouths shut. We sat down with our number one hero Bill Schultz, Hero: 108 Producer and Kabillion Ceo, who defined the cool of Hero: 108 in his own words.

Tell me a little about where the concept of Hero: 108 came from.

Pheonix and Pongo, who were hired by Albert Liu, Head of Gamania, wanted to get into creating some interesting IP that could be turned into games. So this animation team housed ata Gamania created this concept which was inspired by Phoenix’s love of the Water Margin Stories. Gamania hired Rita Street, former editor of Animation Magazine, who brought it to me and everyone here at Moonscoop fell in love! So did the folks at Cartoon Network, International – Finn Arneson, Daniel Lennard and Suzanne Berman – the rest is history!

What is your favorite episode from the first season?

I Love them all – but ep number 5 ["Parrot Castle"] – is my favorite!

What age range do you find Hero: 108 fans to be in?

From 5-35 --- it is a multi layered property. The creative integrity is substantial. So different fans will love it for different reasons. The humor is very silly, yet sophisticated. You need to be smart to appreciate its real charm – but simpler minds will just take it for the action and fun!

What do you think this generation's takeaway is going to be from Hero: 108? Any cool catch phrases?

Fear my Eyeballs!

Got a favorite hero of all time?

Batman and Superman! (but I do love Lin Chung – he is a lover not a fighter – but he can kick some @$$!!!!!

Thanks, Bill! You rock! Keep up with Bill Schultz on Twitter at
