CelAction2D continues its success at UK Cartoon Forum 2012

Andy Blazdell's CelAction2D software is in the news...


Seven Cartoon Forum shows are made with CelAction2D

London, UK (6th September 2012) – Cartoon Forum, the leading platform for European animated TV series being held in Toulouse, France on 12-14 September, will include 7 pitches made using CelAction2D animation software. This is over 10% of the total number of 69 projects, including not just 2D shows, but 3D and stop motion too.

Following in the footsteps of previous Cartoon Forum successes such as Peppa Pig, Charlie & Lola and Sarah & Duck, these new CelAction2D projects represent the best of European talent, and also demonstrate the confidence in the 2D market.

“This is an unprecedented achievement for us”, said Andy Blazdell, CEO of CelAction, developer of CelAction2D. “We’ve never had so many shows presented in one year before at Cartoon Forum, and it underlines our growing presence on the worldwide stage.”

One of the firm favorites for this year’s Cartoon Forum is Fingers McGraw, from Tiger Aspect Productions, a 26 x 22 minute series for the 6+ market.


It’s a fast-paced and funny Cops-and-Robbers show that’s already got everybody talking. The Tiger Aspect team worked closely with CelAction to develop a unique look that can be animated quickly and efficiently to get the best results.

“The new features we have put in to CelAction2D over the past couple of years are making a huge difference,” added Andy. “We’re redefining the total cost of production of 2D animation to give higher quality for lower prices. Studios all over the world are re-evaluating their existing pipelines and looking to our model.”
