Cartoon Network And Pixelatl Launches Pitch Me Evolution Contest

Cartoon Network Latin America and the annual Pixelatl animation festival in Cuernavaca, Mexico have teamed up for another Pitch Me competition, this year’s competition has the title “Pitch Me Evolution”. The competition is an opportunity for aspiring animators to pitch their animated show ideas in front of content executives from Cartoon Network Latin America. Last year’s competition – “Pitch Me Anything” was an opportunity for animators to put forward their ideas for short-form cartoons for the Cartoon Network Anything app. Back in 2014, Alan Ituriel pitched his “Villainous” show idea for the Ideatoon contest at Pixelatl and it attracted the attention of Cartoon Network Latin America executives. Villainous started off from a concept and now it’s an animated short series which has been highly received by animation fans on the internet.

Competition participants must be over 18 years old and live in Latin America. The proposed animated short must have humour and must have a unique and innovative format that appeals to children aged between 6 and 11 years old and the proposed project must fit in well with Cartoon Network’s existing programming. Cartoon Network are looking for projects that could possibly be turned into 7 to 11-minute episodes for their YouTube channel. A maximum of fifteen finalists will be selected and the winner of the competition will get their pitch bible turned into an animated pilot.

The project submission deadline is Monday 17th July and the winner will be announced at the end of the Pixelatl animation festival. This year’s Pixelatl festival will be held between 5th-10th September.

Cartoon Network’s first ever Mexican animated production – Villainous debuted on the Cartoon Network Anything app yesterday and is airing on the Cartoon Network TV channel during ad breaks in Latin America with ten shorts currently airing. Created by Alan Ituriel, the show is a series of animated shorts about an evil organisation called “The Black Cat Organisation”, the organisation is led by a character named Black Hat, an elegant, cunning and wicked man. Helping Black Hat with his evil plans is Dr. Flug, who’s a scientist that has a tendency to get nervous. Black Hat’s assistant is Demencia, who loves to destroy things for fun. Last but not least, there’s 5.0.5, a failed experiment by Dr. Flug, an adorable teddy bear-like creature and is the complete opposite of being evil. The show is produced in English and has been dubbed in Spanish for Latin America. In the English dub, 5.0.5. is voiced by YouTuber and gamer – Markiplier.

Villainous was first revealed as an animated project at the Pixelatl animation, video games and comics festival in Cuernavaca, Mexico last year.

Animation Studios, sound designed by TRACKS in Atlanta with Diego Valenzuela as a writer for the show.

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.
