Hot Rocks

Hot Rocks was a music video series for The Playboy Channel developed and produced by Buzzco Productions and Fred/Alan Productions in 1983. It showed videos "too hot for MTV". Buzzco Productions created a Tinkerbell type character for some interstitial ID's and a feature title sequence for Let's Do It!

I was the only female at the table. I felt so liberated being able to talk freely about sexual fantasy, until it felt uncomfortable.  In any case, I was glad to be asked in the first place.

As it happened, I had been working for Buzz Potamkin for over 10 years without taking a vacation. We agreed that I could take 2 months off during the summer of 1983 because he was pitching more shows than actually getting into production. The last thing I did was design, storyboard and layout for the main titles for a breast-obsessed movie originally called Oh, Whattah Boy!, then renamed Let's Do It!

When I returned at the end of August, I asked to see it, but it had been delivered already. I had almost forgotten about this project until Fred Seibert, who I had contacted for inclusion in this website, sent the movie to me in order to be included. It totally surprised me-- I recognized my drawings, but I had never seen the animation--expertly created by Vincent Cafarelli, and maybe Jan Svochak, while I was on vacation-- and was very impressed that I could have come up with it!
