THE search is on for homegrown ideas for brand new cartoons.
Cartoon Network is collaborating with Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) to bring SNAPTOONS (Short New Asia Pacific Cartoons) to Malaysia.
The network is planning to invest in unique animated ideas, targeted at kids and which reflect the network brand promise of fun, funny and fearless.
As part of the programme, Cartoon Network and MDeC are inviting animation industry professionals, individual animators and animation studios from Malaysia to send in their pitches and see their creations come to life and perhaps even join the channel’s iconic characters like Ben 10, Chowder, The Powerpuff Girls and Johnny Bravo.
Ten pitches will be shortlisted based on their development potential, and up to five will eventually be created into broadcast-quality shorts.
Concepts should appeal to children, be inspiring, smart and above all very funny. Submission deadline is Dec 31.
