Cartoon Network Africa Launches Imagination Studios
Cartoon Network Imagination Studios – Cartoon Network Europe, Middle East and Africa’s initiative to get children to be creative has launched in South Africa. The initiative allows people to learn more about how cartoons are made including the step by step process and the many aspects of animation including drawing, colouring, storyboarding, music, special effects, voiceovers, and frame-by-frame animation via the Imagination Studios minisite on the Cartoon Network Africa website. Rebecca Sugar (creator of Steven Universe) and Ben Bocquelet (creator of The Amazing World of Gumball) and many others behind Cartoon Network’s shows offer tips and advice about making drawings and creating animation.
Like other Cartoon Network EMEA feeds, Cartoon Network Africa will also be holding an Imagination Studios competition offering children, aged 6 to 12 years, the opportunity to enter their very own original, unique creations and have a chance to see their creations come to life on Cartoon Network.
Vice President Southern Europe and Africa for Turner Broadcasting System Europe, Pierre Branco made this statement about the launch of the Imagination Studios initiative in Africa.
“Cartoon Network Imagination Studios is a place where children can learn, gain inspiration, have fun and, ultimately, be themselves; it promotes the value of being authentic, unique, and different and teaches children how to express themselves by means of creation, through art. The launch of Cartoon Network Imagination Studios marks an important milestone in the network’s commitment to helping children learn and develop their Imaginative, creative skills – using the channel’s affinity with young audiences to do so.”
