MyToons.com announced that it has inked a deal with video site YouTube to showcase the work of thousands of animators on the new MyToons branded YouTube channel.
"We have thousands of animators utilizing our free upload and streaming system to broadcast their work to the world," said Paul Ford, co-founder/president of MyToons.com. "Our new channel with YouTube provides tremendous new exposure for our artists and enhances our ability to extend the MyToons brand, as well as to reach a broader consumer base with which to share high quality original animations."
"YouTube is an important step on the road to much wider distribution for MyToons and our animation community members," said Ford. "We're always focused on providing additional enhancements to give our animators even greater exposure."
MyToons further supports the animation community through contests and events, as well as sponsorships. This week MyToons is a Silver Sponsor of the International Animated Film Society's (ASIFA) 35th Annual Annie Awards, which will take place on Friday, Feb. 8, at UCLA's Royce Hall in Los Angeles.
