WATCH: UglyDolls Guest Star in New Kelly Clarkson Video
The video for “Broken & Beautiful,” which features Clarkson’s daughter River Rose, shows the Grammy-winning singer backstage preparing for a show. Through her positive self affirmations of “I know I’m Superwoman, I know I’m strong,” the insatiably curious pink UglyDoll Moxy (voiced by Clarkson in the film) causes a behind-the-scenes stir as she takes it upon herself to get a full access glimpse into the performance. But while the security guard is somewhat less-than-amused (and out of breath), Clarkson and her daughter are charmed by Moxy’s excitement and confidence. The custom character animation was provided by ATK PLN, supervised by Sr Producer Samantha Daniel. UglyDolls hits theaters May 3.

Brandon Reed’s YouTube Channel Took Him from Barely Scraping By to Buying His Own Home
In the latest installment of Tubefilter/Semaphore’s “Creators Going Pro” series, the creator of Cartoon Connect and the popular Lil Ron Ron toons talks about how this new avenue of distribution helped him create a stable life for himself and his two kids.

“As a kid, I always had dreams of making the cartoons that I would watch on TV. After college, I started watching a lot of animators on YouTube and realized there was a bunch of tutorials on YouTube showing how to make cartoons, so I spent like a year watching them. I started posting my own videos on YouTube since that was my favorite place to watch independent animations. I figured I could find an audience that enjoyed the same type of cartoons I made.” — Brandon Reed
