In what was one of the most-anticipated presentations of the week, Warner Bros. Animation today unveiled the first batch of finished shorts from the upcoming series Looney Tunes Cartoons in front of a standing-room only crowd at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
One of the shorts screened during the presentation was “Dynamite Dance,” directed by David Gemmill. In addition to screening multiple shorts, executive producer Pete Browngardt and supervising producer Alex Kirwan gave Annecy attendees a behind-the-scenes look inside the program’s production process.
Looney Tunes Cartoons kicked off its week at Annecy as part of the Opening Ceremony festivities, with shorts screening in front of the festival’s opening night film, Playmobil: The Movie, as well as during the festival’s open-air screenings.
Looney Tunes Cartoons is a series of new short form cartoons starring the iconic and beloved Looney Tunes characters. With a crew of some of the premier artists working in animation today, each “season” will produce 1,000 minutes of all-new Looney Tunes animation that will be distributed across multiple platforms — including digital, mobile and broadcast.
