Toontorials Winner Of Cartoon Network Latin America’s And Pixelatl’s Pitch Me Evolution Competition

Cartoon Network Latin America and the Pixelatl Animation Festival has announced the winning project of their Pitch Me Evolution competition – Toontorials. This year, there were nine finalists, with Toontorials chosen as the winner. Toontorials was a pitch idea put forward by Mexican comic book artist – Axur Eneas and Mexico City based animation studio – Cinema Fantasma. Toontorials features animated tutorials for simple everyday tasks but made ridiculously over-complicated and unnecessary, an given example is finding a cyclops to open a can of beans. Axur Eneas and Cinema Fantasma have won $10,000 USD towards the production costs for a pilot episode, with an opportunity for the pilot to be publicly displayed on Cartoon Network Latin America’s digital platforms. Cinema Fantasma has previously worked with Cartoon Network Latin America to produce animated bumpers for the channel.

Regarding the winning project, Hernán La Greca, Senior Creative Director of Original Production at Cartoon Network said (translated):

“We are very happy to continue collaborating with Pixelatl and to once again give the opportunity to new talent in Latin America to display their creativity and have a place on our screens. The winning project was selected for its originality, humour and versatility, keeping in with what our fans expect from Cartoon Network’s entertainment experience on our YouTube channels.”

José Iñesta, Director of Pixelatl also added (translated):

“Pixelatl has established itself as the talent launching platform in the region, where the different disciplines, visions and proposals of artists come together and mix. Proof of the above is the trust that Cartoon Network has placed in the festival”.

Villainous First Ever Short Form Show From Cartoon Network Mexico

Last week (08/09/2016), Cartoon Network Mexico announced that they have greenlit their first ever short-form animated show during a session at the Pixelatl Animation, Video Games and Comics Convention in Cuernavaca (near Mexico City). The new animated show is called “Villainous” and is created by Alan Ituriel, known for his production work on the 2011 film – Top Cat: The Movie. The short-form show has been specially developed for the Cartoon Network Anything app.

Hernán La Greca (Senior Creative Director for Cartoon Network Latin America), Jaime Jiménez (Senior Content Manager for Cartoon Network Mexico) and Humberto Cervera (Original Productions in Spanish, Cartoon Network Mexico) also attended the Villainous! session at the festival and also offered potential show creators an opportunity to pitch their ideas to them. In 2015, Cartoon Network opened an office in Mexico City specifically to receive and develop ideas and projects from Mexican artists.

Information about the show’s characters have been posted on the internet, but nothing has been officially posted by Cartoon Network yet, I will keep you informed when more information about the show has been officially released.
