300 speed-dating sessions at Cartoon Games
Cartoon Games took place today, just before Cartoon Movie. Organised in collaboration with the Imaginove cluster, these meetings aim to foster partnerships upstream between animation producers and video game companies.
CARTOON and Imaginove, the cluster of image and digital content in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, organised the 5th Cartoon Games, which consists of matchmaking sessions of 20 minutes each between animation film producers and video game companies. The aim is to encourage the players of both worlds to multiply opportunities for cooperation between animation and video games.
This year, 47 video game representatives from Belgium, Germany, France and Spain, along with 27 animation producers met during more than 300 meetings.
Examples of collaborations created thanks to Cartoon Games:
- "Asphalt" by Raphaël Penasa Fauns, a Lyon-based video game company, is going to produce its first feature film.
- "Ooops! Noah is gone..." by directors Toby Genkel and Sean Mc Cormack The creation of a video game from the film came about following the meeting of a video game company, Mimimi Productions, during Cartoon Games.
- "Dofus - Book 1" by Jean-Jacques Denis & Anthony Roux Dofus - Book 1 is a feature film version of the video game.
