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”.

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.
