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”.
