300 speed-dating sessions at Cartoon Games & Apps
Cartoon Games & Apps took place today, just before Cartoon Movie. In collaboration with Bordeaux Games, Pôle Image Magelis and CATS (Cluster Aquitain du Transmedia Storytelling), Cartoon organises the "Cartoon Games & Apps", which consists of matchmaking sessions of 20 minutes each between animation producers, transmedia & gaming professionals. These meetings started at 2pm at Palais des Congrès in order to establish a new synergy between these two sectors and in the long term, to encourage producers to bring game and transmedia partner at the same EARLY stage as the co-producer and the distributor in the process of a feature film.
This year, 39 video game and transmedia representatives (Ubisoft, Shinypix who created "Robinson Crusoe" game, FrameOver, Remote Control Productions, Waveor, Solidanim who created "Cafard" game..) from Germany, Belgium, Spain and France, and around 63 European animation producers met during more than 300 meetings.
