Director of ‘Lil’ Pimp’ and TV shows like ‘Metalocalypse’ and Marvel’s animated ‘Black Panther’ to oversee development at LA studio.
LOS ANGELES -- Titmouse, the Emmy-award winning animation production company, announced today that Mark Brooks joins the executive team as creative director. Based in Titmouse’s LA studio, Brooks is an acclaimed artist with ties to the studio dating back to 2006 for his storyboarding, directing and writing work on Metalocalypse, which follows the adventures of Dethklok, the world's most successful death metal band.
A native of Denver, Mark Brooks is a writer, director and musician. His credits include writing, directing, and starring in the feature film, Lil’ Pimp (Bernie Mac, William Shatner) and directing The Slim Shady Show (Eminem). While at Titmouse, Brooks directed on Metalocalypse, the Marvel animated series Black Panther, Moonbeam City (Rob Lowe) as well as the VR music experience, Show It 2 Me, with his goth pop band Night Club providing the soundtracks. Recently Brooks served as supervising director on two Amazon Original projects, the Emmy award-winning series Little Big Awesome and The New V.I.P.’s.
Promoted from director to creative director, Brooks new responsibilities include overseeing content development, client management and other creative stuff.
“When an animation titan such as Chris P. asks you to go into battle, there’s no answer you give other than ‘When do I start, man?’,” Brooks says. “It’s quite an honor to begin this new journey at Titmouse. I plan to get my hands bloody and fight the good fight ‘til my dying breath.”
Titmouse founder and owner, Chris Prynoski added, “Brooks and I have slain many beasts together in the desperate trenches of the animation industry. His axe is strong and sharp. I trust his mighty blade to spill the blood of any project into the gaping mouth of Titmouse -- be it drama, comedy, or even dramedy. If a demon were to attack while my back is turned, I’m certain Mark Brooks would handily eviscerate it and we’d dine upon its entrails as we scream out to the cartoon gods before our drunken bonfire.”
