Cartoon Network Asia Announces Snaptoons Finalists
Cartoon Network Asia has recently announced the three shortlisted Snaptoons finalists from Singapore, as well as the completion of the two animated shorts from Malaysia. The finalists were chosen based on the shorts’ originality and creativity, while staying true to Cartoon Network’s fun, funny, and character-driven traits.

Cartoon Network Asia’s Snaptoons is designed to discover the next generation of cartoon superstars, and they seem closer to that goal upon announcing the three finalists from Singapore: Maxine Starr Last Vanguard of the Zodiac (by Kane Wheatley-Holder), The World (by Sabreena Shanu), and Definitely Not Animals (by Dreamforest Animation). The production of the shorts are expected to finish by 2014. The completed shorts from Malaysia are Ziro The Wizard…In Training (by Tomato Animation) and Blox Brigade (by Unizaru). Both shorts took a year to complete.

“Original content lies at the heart of Cartoon Network and we’re seeing some refreshingly awesome ideas emerging from animators in Southeast Asia that have incredible potential,” said Silas Hickey, Regional Creative Director of Animation, Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc. “With the amazing support of both Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) and MDeC from Singapore and Malaysia respectively, Cartoon Network is committed to nurturing local talent and bringing SNAPTOONS to even greater heights in this region.”
