Every once in a while we like to brush off old features, like this one: From the Internets! Nothing fancy, just a very semi-regular roundup of Canadian animation related news and curiosities from around the web. Here’s the latest tidbits.
- An excellently in-depth look at the long journey from page to screen for Red Ketchup, the animated series adaption of the Quebec bande dessinée by Réal Godbout and Pierre Fournier, produced by Sphere Animation for Canadian Adult Swim. The coverage is by long-time friend of the site, Cameron Archer. It’s a great read. Link here.
- And if we’re doing write-ups, Looper has an equally in-depth, culled from previous articles elsewhere, examination of the Canadian-produced nineties cartoon adaption of Beetlejuice. Robin Budd, Michael Hirsch and Tara Strong, among others, are namedropped. Link here.
- In Business news, Josh Scherba is the new CEO at Wildbrain. Courtesy of C21.
- Montreal’s E.D. Films is premiering their long awaited Return to Hairy Hill. Great write-up on AWN. Here’s the trailer. A gorgeous film about a personal story, and a tremendous application of technology to storytelling. That’s what E.D. Films does. Here’s the trailer.
- And finally, Cartoon Brew’s Jamie Lang talks to our hero, and self-made feature film director, Denver Jackson, about the journey he’s been on with his latest and greatest, the World’s Divide. We love Denver. Here’s the link. And, because we truly love Denver, here’s the trailer again.
