Do you have an idea for a cartoon you want to make? Or possibly a series?
Maybe you are completely new to animation, or maybe you are an animation enthusiast from way back. Either way, you probably know that animation can be time-consuming. Great ideas for cartoons often become unfinished films, because there never seems to be enough time to get all the animation done. And, certainly, if you have told anyone what you want to do, you’ve heard that building animation skills requires a lifetime of effort, and usually begins with a multi-year art education, and a six-figure school debt.
Do you really need to be a master animator like Glen Keane (Ariel, Beast) or Richard Williams (Roger Rabbit) to make your cartoon now? Do you have to be a software genius to make funny drawings move? Is it possible to create your dream project without losing sleep, losing your friends, losing your job, losing your mind?
Does animation really need to be THAT complicated?
You have fun story ideas that would work great in animation. You can sketch the characters, props and backgrounds just the way you want them to look. You have a couple of hours here, and a couple of hours there, on some evenings and weekends. These are most of the ingredients that cartoons are made of, but one is missing . . .
What ingredient is missing?
A magic cartoon machine? No, but that would be awesome. How about a production studio with one thousand technicians awaiting to produce your artistic vision? That would be a powerful and expensive ingredient.
Animation studios (especially those producing for television) have very clear systems in place to get their cartoon properties produced in the most economical way possible. Once the idea is created and sent into their system (pipeline), the focus is on efficiently transforming the idea into a finished product – on schedule.
Toontooga is all about discovering how those kind of processes translate to the world of the individual artist.
