Cartoon Games: keynotes & one-to-one meetings!
Each year, Cartoon organises the "Cartoon Games", which is an event dedicated to animation, video game companies, and publishers. It consists of an entire afternoon of keynotes by key leaders (this year: Mathieu Muller from Unity Technology and Sean Patrick O’Reilly from Aracana Studios), one-to-one meetings and exchanges. The main objectives are to create synergies between the animation, video game, transmedia industries and for the first year, comic editors; and in the long term, to encourage producers to bring game & transmedia partner at the same early stage as the co-producer and the distributor in the process of a feature film.
This year we were proud to welcome 25 publishers who are looking for content for their publications. Surprising fact: very often publishers enter an animation project to make a book, a comic or a graphic novel based on the movie, but that the book is released before the animation film to boost the promotion!
