Cartoon Network Latin America Announces New Original Production – Guau Created By Alexis Moyano

Cartoon Network Latin America and Argentine illustrator, animator and graphic designer – Alexis Moyano have teamed up to produce a 11-minute special called “Guau” – (“Woof” or “Wow” in Spanish). The special will feature comedic animated stories with live-action and animated scenes featuring dogs. On the project, Alexis Moyano collaborated with Andrés Reid, production manager of Cartoon Network Latin America and Hernán La Greca, Senior Creative Director of Cartoon Network Latin America.

While talking about the show, Alexis Moyano explains that working with dogs helps him come up with new ideas, jokes and absurd situations, dogs have complex personalities, they can be an angry monster one second and then harmless and playful the next. He also explains that Cartoon Network gave him the unique opportunity to work on his personal project. Guau is only one of the latest productions to come from Cartoon Network Latin America, the region has lately become an international hotspot for animation with shows such as Oswaldo and Villainous becoming big successes and there’s many more to come in the future.

Le Cube’s Action Packed Promo For Cartoon Network’s OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes

Argentinian design and animation studio – Le Cube has produced an animated one minute long promo for OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, specially made for Cartoon Network Latin America. Cartoon Network Studios’ OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes – created by Ian Jones-Quartey is influenced by anime and video games from the late 1980’s and 1990’s such as Double Dragon and Sonic The Hedgehog. The promo makes use of the 2D 16-bit pixel video game art style from the era and also anime-inspired action sequences. The promo also features the show’s main characters – K.O., Enid, Rad, Mr. Gar, Carol and Lord Boxman.

Le Cube is a design studio client of Cartoon Network Latin America and has produced animated promos for The Powerpuff Girls, Cartoon Network Latin America’s classic animation channel Tooncast and also for Cartoon Network Latin America’s 25th Anniversary.

Ralph Karam, Le Cube’s Creative Director, commented on the production of the specially commissioned promo:

“Using the studio’s (Le Cube) to trademark mix of different art and animation styles, we were able to translate what we felt Ian Jones-Quartey, the show’s creator, wanted to convey to the audience.”

“From the nostalgic elements to the use of action movie worthy cameras and shots, we at the studio and everybody at CN LA hope it’s clear that the film is a product of the connection we all feel with the series concept.”

“It was a big (but awesome) challenge to blend all the techniques, like pixel art elements in 2D animation scenes but the team, along with CN LA, really believe that it pays off by giving the film a very unique look and feel, seamlessly mixing all the references we already loved.”
