Adult Swim’s new ‘Apollo Gauntlet,’ from Six Point Harness, also to Screen at RTX Austin 2017.
LOS ANGELES & AUSTIN, TX -- The visually bold, graphic-novel adaptation of French comic series Lastman and the fourth season of the irreverent hit Deep Space 69 will premiere during the Rooster Teeth Animation Festival in Austin.
The Rooster Teeth Animation Festival, which takes place at RTX Austin, will hold the English-language premiere of Lastman and the global season premiere of Deep Space 69, which will be joined by a special screening of Adult Swim’s new series Apollo Gauntlet from MONDO‘s studio Six Point Harness.
“RTX is an incredibly exciting event, and their first-ever Animation Festival in 2016 proved to be so popular that it’s a perfect setting for us to show off our newest projects to an incredible group of fans,” said Brendan Burch, MONDO’s chief creative officer and president of Six Point Harness.
The traditionally animated series Lastman, which originally aired in France on France4, has been translated into English in a multi-national creative effort. Lastman mixes martial arts, boxing, action, drama and the supernatural into a unique adventure.
Deep Space 69 continues its intergalactic tale of sex, sexual exploits and sexual conquests with a fourth season -- following three seasons that have attracted more than 50 million online views. Originally available on YouTube, Deep Space 69, from creator Daniel Katz (Xemoland, Beer Cops) will join Lastman as series available exclusively on MONDO’s channel on VRV, the new video experience from Ellation.
The hour-long MONDO panel, featuring both Lastman and Deep Space 69, will feature a discussion with Six Point Harness’s Burch, head of development Wendy Willis, and creative director Greg Franklin. The panel will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday, July 9, in Room 10AB of the Austin Convention Center.
In addition to Lastman and Deep Space 69, the all-new Adult Swim series Apollo Gauntlet, will have a special screening during the RTX Animation Festival, followed by a panel discussion that will feature series creator Myles Langlois -- who also provides the voice of Apollo Gauntlet. MONDO’s Willis, Franklin and lead editor Tony Christopherson will also be on the Adult Swim panel.
Adult Swim’s screening and panel discussion featuring Apollo Gauntlet will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 8, on the Center Stage of the Austin Convention Center.
