Hey Guys! I'm new to AWN forums, but have read the magazine for years. I've been doing 3D VFX for about 9 years, orginally based in LA but now currently based in Berlin as head of 3D for a small studio called Shape Minds and Moving Images.
I joined because I am (with a partner) currently in the process of developing a cartoon series to pitch to TV and Cable networks. We are pretty early in the process and I am doing some research. I have a similar discussion going on CG talk but I also wanted to get the input of this forum as well, since it is not as CG centric.
Firstly, I've been doing research on existing CG animated series. I've got a list going, but I feel like there are some I am definitely missing feel free to add any you can think of. I am specifically looking for the typical 22 min, 13-16 episodes in a season kind of shows but other good examples are welcome. Also if you know of any long running CG web series that would be great too.
-Tak and the Power of Juju
-Green Lantern the Animated Series (upcoming)
-Rolie Polie Olie
-Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
-Star Wars: Clone Wars
-Sid the Science Kid
-Father of the Pride
-Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
-Donkey Kong Country
The next question is a bit more subjective. What about these series worked well, what didn't and in what areas could these shows use improvement?
I've got some more specific questions but I'd like to see what people have to say about those first two before adding them to this thread. Any general opinions on CG animated series are also totally welcome.
