New York City-based Noodlesoup Productions, Inc. is expanding to form a new original content creation division - Noodlesoup Entertainment that will solely focus on the development and production of high quality original animated feature films and television programming.
Noodlesoup Prods. is best known for its breakout Cartoon Network hit series, THE VENTURE BROTHERS, as well as for the work of its commercial divisions campaigns for MSN and Earthlink. Noodlesoup Ent. is already beginning development on several new programs with major U.S. distributors.
Jeffrey Nodelman, the award-winning animation director and founder of Noodlesoup Prods., has been named chief creative officer of Noodlesoup Ent. while Nathan Graf, who had served as the coo of Noodlesoup Prods., becomes ceo, overseeing all business operations of the company including its for hire production projects.
This is a very positive move for the studio as it expands beyond the production services business, said David L. Simon, a member of Noodlesoup Prods. board of directors. With Jeffs unique talent and storytelling abilities we will now be able to actively peruse the means to create and retain equity in our original projects.
The extraordinarily talented group of people we have here have done their jobs so well, allowing us to expand our operations and grow the studio on both a creative and an economic basis, said Nodelman. This move will let me spend more time on the projects we have in development, while allowing me to begin pursuing opportunities for additional co-productions and new properties.
Added Graf, Jeff and I look forward to complementing each other in new and different ways moving forward that will help to benefit the company as it enters a new phase in it evolution. Strategically, this works well for both of us. By my taking the reins of the day-to-day needs of the service sector business, Jeffrey can now concentrate on what he does best and not be saddled with responsibilities that detract from his creative endeavors.
