There is something absolutely wonderful about creativity blossoming in crisis. Normally, I would say, it is hard to come by, but with Covid shutting the industries of the world down, creative thinkers have been forced do what they do best: CREATE outside the studio box. While live action studios will not be able to return just yet to full action, animation is seeing a boom, and likely will continue this hot spell. Our friends at Top Draw Animation, with their full 3-D animation capability, are part of this animated heatwave with expansion into some newly acquired contracts. We are excited for them, and all the opportunities this will provide creatives across the globe. According to this Forbes article, “Because of the lead time for animation production, deals being signed and sourced now will be in the pipeline for a while – good news for the studios, artists, voice actors and others in the industry.” This is the kind of upward trend we hope to continue seeing as the world reemerges from its quarantine.
