Screen novelties. Stop motion super pop

Sunday 24th February / 16.30 h. La Llotja, Hall Leandre Cristòfol

Animac receives with all the honours one of the most singular indie stop motion production companies in the US animated industry: Screen Novelties. Founded in 2003 in Los Angeles by Mark Caballero, Seamus Walsh and Chris Finnegan, the studio brings together a group of directors, animators, sculptors, designers, photographers and digital artists, and you can feel their cartoonish DNA ‒ whimsical and dynamic ‒ within their stop motion animation with puppets and other mixed-media techniques.
Screen Novelties has worked for prestigious networks like Cartoon Network, Disney, Nickelodeon and Fox, film studios such as Paramount, clients like Nike and Hallmark, and video game developers such as Epic Games and their worldwide famous Fortnite. They have also given life in stop motion to many iconic cartoon characters, such as The Flintstones, Spongebob SquarePants, Chowder, Flapjack, Finn and Jake from Adventure Time, and Harvey Beaks, and they have been instrumental in the birth of Adult Swim’s cult TV series Robot Chicken and Moral Orel in their first seasons, both TV shows also present in Animac 2019.
Caballero, Walsh and Finnegan will share with us their journey as an independent studio at the service of the biggest studios and networks, while trying to find authorship surrounded by so many pop culture characters.
