NEW PILOT - SuperCentre, Co-Created by Josh Bowen and Tony Grillo

There's a new adult animated series in town - it's called SuperCentre, and it just got the funding to go into production for a 22min pilot that will be released online via Mondo Media. Check out the press release below for all the details on the show on it's creators.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Big Box Retail Gets Animated As if big box retail wasn’t animated enough.  A brand new 22-minute pilot inspired by Black Friday riots and underpaid employees on food stamps goes into production.

TORONTO ONTARIO CANADA NOVEMBER 18TH 2013 - Goodwin Badwin Productions and MightyPants Media have just commenced production on a 22-minute adult animated comedy pilot, SuperCenter.  The pilot is privately financed and will be distributed to Mondo Media’s 2 million YouTube subscribers in late summer 2014.

SupreCentre - Co-Created by Josh Bowen and Tony Grillo

SuperCenter follows the lives of the Morris family, who live in a town where cultural, social and economic prosperity have become synonymous with a massive retail mecca that sells everything one could possibly want - for life or death. The immense store stretches literally for miles, and is aptly equipped with restaurants, lodging and a subway system that allows customers to shop across county lines and possibly even state lines.

Co-creator and Executive Producer Joshua Bowen is excited by the prospects of this project, “Animation allows you to explore social commentary and comedy that live action programming doesn’t necessarily permit.  We are excited about the comedic opportunities presented with this concept.”

“The big box economy’s sudden and powerful affect on our social experience has forever blurred the lines between living and shopping” says Co-creator & Director Tony Grillo, “with SuperCenter, we set the clock forward five years to observe ordinary people cheerfully adapting to the farthest extremes of this odd new world.”

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes now on YouTube

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes isn't a Canadian production, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy Canadian animated content. When asked what Canadian animation they are most drawn to they responded by saying:

"We find inspiration in lots of animation art produced in Canada! Frédéric Back is just one of many animators that we love. His short film Crac is pure joy! It's hard to define what exactly makes it so charming - maybe it is lack of dialogues, or expressionistic drawing style with plenty of nice details, or maybe that it's fun to see the world through the eyes of a wheelchair!"
