files/pictures/picture-35.jpgHonkworm International, a leading producer of original on-line entertainment content, has unveiled three new animation projects at the Cannes Film Festival. Each title will consist of no less than 20 Webisodes, ranging from two to six minutes in length. Honkworm executive VP of content Chris Cobb said, "We approach each of our short-form series from a filmmakers perspective, for us, first and foremost, it's about storytelling. As filmmakers, it's a thrill for us to debut these projects at Cannes for the worldwide market." The first of the new projects is DISCO CANDIDATE, a political satire that features U.S. Presidential candidate D.J. Trout, a disk jockey who has lived in his nightclub for the last 25 years. SASHA'S GARAGE follows 10-year-old Sasha, who, over sheltered by his parents, reinterprets snippets of popular programs as puppet shows for the neighborhood kids in his garage. THE STATISTICS SHOW is a stop-motion series, created by Roy Wood, that brings to life weird stats like, "In the U.S. alone, 8 people per year are killed by rabbits." Based in Seattle, Honkworm also has offices in Vancouver, Los Angeles and New York. The company will expand into Europe later in the year.
