The organization will review toon shorts quarterly. The best of those shorts will be aired on Britshorts.com. Some of those shorts will be selected for further development in film and television. Scott Dyer, chief technical officer of Nelvana, told VARIETY, "Nelvana is keenly interested in the Web as a test vehicle for animation, encouraging new talent to build an audience before considering traditional media outlets. We are pleased to support this new initiative and look forward to supporting the work of Europe and the U.K.'s best animators and to the success of the Web-based distribution."
