Initiatives

Startoon

In 2016, the Shaw Rocket Fund partnered with Wildseed Studios to launch a talent show to find Canada’s next cartoon superstar. Canadian animators, budding to experienced, are tasked with submitting character audition videos and competing in challenges that the public can vote on in order to select a winner.

Startoon will open for auditions on March 13. Get ready to cast a vote for your favourite new character!

 

2016’s winner was a character duo, Sonny & Bently, created by Andy Greiling. Andy was awarded $25,000 towards the production of a Sonny & Bently pilot. Congratulations, Andy!

We can’t wait to see who Startoon’s next winner will be!
