Channel 4 announces autumn Animation Zone

The next C4 animation season will be stripped across 6 weeks in the Channel’s late-autumn schedules, on the same weekday night every week, for approximately 2 hours per week.

Much of it will air new comedy animation and sitcom pilots (with an emphasis on writing as well as animation talent), but there will also be documentary strands and one-off specials plus premieres of new short films including the latest slate of animate! works.

The Channel is interested in buying in a limited number of short animations (‘film’ or flash) for the season. Themes being sought are sci-fi, popular music, Japan or multi-cultural. Acquisitions deadline 10 August.

Interactivity with channel4.com will play a lively part in the Animation Zone. Check out C4’s new animation page, submit flash animation for acquisition consideration, or enter the flash competition, at the Channel 4 website.
