Cartoon Network Studios Welcome To My Life Emmy Nomination Voting

Elizabeth Ito, the creator of the Cartoon Network Studios’ animated pilot – Welcome To My Life has been encouraging people who are members of ATAS (The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences) to pledge a vote of support during the 2017 Creative Arts Emmy “For Your Consideration” nomination voting stage (running from Monday 12th June to Monday 26th June 2017), so if you are an academy member, please spend nine minutes to watch the pilot, and give it a vote if you like it.

Since its internet debut in April, Welcome To My Life has grabbed the attention of animation fans everywhere and the pilot has been watched over 1.6 million times on YouTube. Welcome to My Life follows the life of a young American monster named Douglas (nicknamed T-Kesh). However, it’s not easy for a monster to live alongside humans; even though to his classmates he appears to be a monster but really he’s a human in the inside. The short is formatted as a “mockumentary” and is an insight of someone’s life who struggles with their differences.

The short is formatted as a “mockumentary” and is an insight of someone’s life who struggles with their differences. The short features lineless 3D CGI characters with a slightly blotchy shaded texture, also similar to The Amazing World of Gumball, the short uses photographs for backgrounds. Compared to the usual output from Cartoon Network Studios, Welcome To My Life has a more mature, quiet and relaxed tone.

As with all animated shorts from Cartoon Network Studios in recent years, the Emmy-award winning art director Nick Cross has also worked on Welcome To My Life. External animation work on the short was completed by French animation studio TeamTo, known for their animation work on Angelo Rules and My Knight and Me.
