Cartoon Monsoon, a new area of the Warner Bros. website, puts the fate of up-and-coming cartoon creators in your hands. Every week, new animated shorts will be submitted for your approval and based on your evaluation, one will be singled out as the cream of the crop.
The filmmakers have been working with the development and production teams at Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Online and MTT Enterprises to showcase their talent and get feedback from the online audience. Visitors to the site watch and rate each entry. The scorecard is updated daily so voters can track results. The site also features a message board where users can discuss their favorites.
The contest will involve 10 cartoons in all. If the contest proves successful, a second round featuring the works of other animators may get the green light. Log on to see and rate the recent webisodes up for consideration at www.cartoonmonsoon.com.
