Cartoon Games: keynotes & B2B meetings!
Cartoon Games took place this afternoon, Tuesday 5 March, just before the opening of Cartoon Movie.
In collaboration with CATS (Cluster Aquitain du Transmedia Storytelling) and Bordeaux Games, Cartoon organises the "Cartoon Games", which is an event dedicated to animation, video game companies. It consists of an entire afternoon of keynotes by key leaders (this year: Luc Verdier, CEO of YS Interactive and Jean-François Szlapka, General Manager of SolidAnim), B2B 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, video game, transmedia & comic editors companies (Ubisoft, Shinypix who created "Robinson Crusoe" game, Remote Control Productions (RCP), Timof Comics, Editions Akileos, Ys Interactive, SolidAnim who created "Cafard" and “White Fang game”…) met European animation producers during the afternoon. This is the beginning of a new generation of feature films, integrating game & transmedia dimensions at the same early stage of the process as the co-producer and the distributor.
