Have you ever wondered what goes into making a “Creator Driven” cartoon?

This Thursday, December 7, 6:30pm - 8:30pm, at Corus Quay, Taafi (Toronto Animation Arts Festival International) is hosting a cartoon discussion all about what it takes to make a “Creator Driven” series!

They are bringing together 5 panelists, all recent originators of “creator driven” Canadian cartoons, including our own 3 Amigonauts mastermind Kyle Marshall.

“Over the past few years there have been many panels and initiatives discussing how in Canada we need to be making “Creator Driven” cartoons. It’s time to evolve that conversation as these types of shows ARE being produced in Canada. We are bringing together the creators of 5 recent ‘creator driven’ Canadian cartoons to talk about their experience. What was their background? How did the pitch go? What was the development like? What was their involvement in the show? What did they learn from production? What would you do differently and what advice do they have for other creators? We will be case studying 2 series that have recently premiered (Mysticons and The 3 Amigonauts), 2 that are premiering over the next year (Cupcake and Dinosaur and Wishfart) and one show that is currently in development (Sprinkle & The Sweet Sugar Magics).”

Other panelists include Mysticons creator / story editor Sean Jara, Wishfart creators / showrunners Lienne Sawatzy, Dan Williams and John Hazlett , Cupcake and Dinosaur creator / director Pedro Eboli, and Sprinkle and the Sweet Sugar Magics creator Stephanie Kaliner. The panel moderator is Brandon Lane.

This is a FREE EVENT, and though at capacity, there will be a rush line at the venue. All attendees are encouraged to arrive by 6pm, as unclaimed seats will be released to the rush line at 6:15pm.
