Big news in animation today as DreamWorks TV has just launched it’s channel on Youtube. I see this as a big thing for a number of reasons. One, in that studios are beginning to bypass networks with their fickle preferences and long development schedules, and two they’re now developing their own programing which translates to more work for animators and artists in our business simply because some one has to MAKE that content. There are a number of animated pieces up there now including four new animated short series.
Jimmy Blue Shorts; created by Zachary Aufdemberg.
Talking Gorillas; about a trio of gorillas that wreak havoc on their wildlife preserve
Incidentally we interviewed the creator Ron Yavnielli recently here on Animation Insider.
The Report Card; News for Kids created by Jimbo Mattinson.
The Public Pool; created by David Fremont.
We also interviewed David Fremont back in 2011.
Finally there are a large number of clips from How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Puss In Boots and many other DreamWorks IP’s and I imaigne there will be more from their newer films as time goes on.
All in all, I think this will be a spot for the animation community to watch. Check it out!
