Hunger games is an interesting story to tackle with a HISHE. There are many things to consider since the the entire series is basically heading to the END of the hunger games, and all that requires. So developing a script that was more substance than, "She shoots all of the tributes with an arrow, then Peeta with an arrow, the end" we spent a lot of time talking hunger games to decide where is the "flaw". Obviously several characters could have died way earlier if anyone with a brain was paying attention, but even if you do that the Capitol still exists and that seemed to be where our angle kept leaning. What about the Capitol? Ultimately, the capitol holds all the cards. So why would they care if anyone ate the berries? Do they really lose anything for their players opting out at the very end of the game? Would it really ruin the "tradition?" I doubt it. They've been doing this for 74 years... it's like a drop in the bucket. So taken the context that the Capitol could care less, and Katniss was never gonna eat the berries, you have our HISHE.
Credits are the usual, but I'd like to give special thanks to everyone who supplied a voice, or a kid scream, on this one. We had some chaotic times with this one during production (A lot of late nights were had to finish it) and to see it come into existence is a serious relief, but I'm also really pleased with the final product. So thanks go to Tina Alexander, Stephanie Fisher (Katniss), Mark Fisher, and Mary Gay for being amazing wonderful friends.
With that, I hope you enjoyed our cartoon!
