"The Fairly OddParents", "Bunsen Is A Beast" Creator Butch Hartman To Host Master Class At 2016 World Animation & VFX Summit

Original The World Animation & VFX Summit Press Release via Animation World Network:

World Animation & VFX Summit Announces Master Classes

Master class presenters include ‘The Fairly OddParents’ creator Butch Hartman, Ilion Studios’ Jose F. San Román, and Emmy-winning animation producer Sander Schwartz.

LOS ANGELES – The fifth edition of the World Animation and VFX Summit will be October 31 - November 2 at the California Yacht Club in Marina del Rey, California. A stellar lineup of master classes is planned to complement the event’s two-day course of panels and networking opportunities. Master class sessions at previous summits have earned rave reviews from attendees for providing in-depth discussions full of insights direct from the masters of the creative and commercial sides of the animation and VFX industry.

'Bunsen is a Beast!'

Master Class Series 1 - Butch Hartman -- “The Secrets of Butch Hartman's Success: How to Pitch, Develop, Produce and Distribute Animated Hits that Resonate with Audiences Around the World”

The award-winning creator of Nickelodeon's popular series The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F Puppy will share useful secrets of his craft, and his unique approach to animation and storytelling in this one-of-a-kind master class. With an eye on the future, Butch will discuss the many possibilities of app development and new ways of creating entertainment for YouTube, Vine, Vimeo and other nonlinear outlets. He will also address finding new ways to pitch ideas, exploring successful storytelling methods and using innovative and less expensive animation tools to produce your projects. In addition, he will offer a production case study of his new Flash-animated series Bunsen Is a Beast, which will debut on Nickelodeon in 2017.

Master Class Series 2 - Jose F San Román - “Discovering a New Asset Class to the Financial Community”

Román offers in-depth review of the financial performance of animated features over the past few years, with particular attention paid to animated tent-pole features and how they are grabbing more attention than many big live-action films. An experienced investment banker, Román also will explore the implications for the animation industry of the box-office success of animated features worldwide. Román joined Spain-based Ilion Studios in 2011 with the goal of establishing the company was one of the world's top independent animated studios. Ilion produced the 20154 film Mortadella y filemón and has a deal to produce tent-pole animated features in partnership with Paramount Pictures.

Master Class Series 3 - Sander Schwartz - “Survival of the Fittest: Creating Innovative Animation Content for the Global Market”

This course will provide a deep dive into the current landscape of animation buyers in key territories around the world and how to collaborate with them in the development and production of new shows. The structure of co-productions with networks and other buyers of animated content provides the main focus of the course, although other means of getting shows green-lit and financed will also be considered to a lesser extent. Of particular interest to many creators and producers is the growth of opportunities in the China market, as that country has in recent years become more open to co-productions and cooperation with IP owners around the world. Looking at recent developments impacting the business of animation in China and analyzing how to best enter it from an IP owner's perspective will be discussed, as will strategies for finding partners for projects that may find audiences both in China and the West as well.

The World Animation & VFX Summit's goal is promoting international co-productions and global ventures and to offer networking and educational opportunities in the intimate setting of the California Yacht Club in Marina del Rey. Tickets are available for purchase here.

The Splat To Air "Pelswick" On Saturday 1st October 2016 | Nickelodeon Animation 25

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to a very last minute schedule change, The Splat won't be airing Pelswick at this moment in time. :(

Zap2it TV Listings is reporting the exciting news that The Splat, Nickelodeon's destination for the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond, will be airing two episodes of the noughties animated series Pelswick on Saturday 1st October 2016, as part of Nickelodeon's 25 Years of Animation celebration!

UPDATE: Following the debut of Pelswick, The Splat will air two more Pelswick episodes on Sunday 2nd October 2016 from 11pm/4am ET/PT!

Pelswick follows Pelswick Eggert, an ordinary, smart, good-natured 13-year-old, but unlike any of his friends, he's got a cool set of wheels! Pelswick is 'permanently seated' as he likes to call a wheelchair. But don't think that Pelswick takes life sitting down, he's up with the best (and worst) of them, 'locked' up for six hours a day at Alcatraz Jr. High school.

Like any other kid, Pelswick is dealing with typical teenage traumas but he always remains his own dude, refusing to surf the wave of popular culture. To his best friends, Ace & Goon, Pelswick is a fearless leader (usually leading them straight into mischief). Julie, who Pelswick has a secret crush on, thinks he's a great friend, and when it comes to dealing with the school bully, Boyd, Pelswick's rolling with the punches - literally.

Unlike other kids, Pelswick also has Mr. Jimmy, his long-bearded, all knowing Guardian Angel. Able to tell the future, Mr Jimmy always has some cryptic advice on hand to help Pelswick out.

In "I Won't Run, Don't Ask Me", airing at 11:00pm ET/PT, unable to threaten Pelswick physically, Boyd decides to humiliate him on a whole different level—by nominating him for school president.

Then, in "Brain Suckers of Skuldeth 5", airing at 11:30pm ET/PT, Ace and Goon lure Pelswick into participating in the latest craze, the Brain Suckers trading card game. Soon Pelswick is totally hooked—and Boyd has the one ultra-rare card Pelswick would do anything to get.

Sunday 2nd October 2016:

11pm - Me, Myself and Irate: Pelswick gets revenge on Boyd during Grandparent Appreciation Week.

11:30pm - Draw!: Pelswick's joy at having his controversial cartoon published in the school paper is diminished when the publication is banned.

Following each episodes' initial airing, The Splat will encore both episodes from 4:00am ET/PT.

Pelswick is created by John Callahan, an acclaimed cartoonist, who was left paralyzed by a car accident at the age of 21. Although confined to a wheelchair, John's sense of humor has known no bounds. He adds his unique blend of razor- sharp whit, heart and real-life experience to this extraordinary cartoon series. Through Pelswick and his friends, kids can approach the topics surrounding disability in a comfortable way, and be reminded that physically challenged kids are still KIDS.

Pelswick is co-produced by Nelvana Limited and Suzhou Hong Ying Animation Corporation Limited in association with The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Nickelodeon Productions.

The series originally ran on Nickelodeon USA between October 5, 2000 – November 14, 2002. The series also aired on Nick on CBS.

Fans can find out more about the series on the official Pelswick website,

WAKE UP THE MASSES!: The Splat has hinted in a promo that they will also air KaBlam! and Action League Now soon!

Watch all your '90s Nickelodeon favorites on The Splat, your late-night destination for your favorite childhood Nickelodeon cartoons and live-action shows! The Splat doesn't question football-shaped heads, but embrace them - along with Reptar bars, a Big Ear of Corn, orange soda, and even slime for Pete (and Pete's) sake. Make your slime-covered Nickelodeon childhood dreams come true every night at 10pm ET/PT, only on TeenNick USA! #TheSplat!
