Brazilian studio Mixer and Canada’s Cite-Amerique’s new co-production, Doggy Day School, was made possible by Toon Boom Animation’s digital pipeline tools.
The companies used the Storyboard Pro and Harmony tools in particular to create 26 11-minute episodes of the series.
Work on the series is divided between the two studios, with Cite-Amerique doing art direction and character design, while Mixer does the rest of production.
‘We were looking for a technology that allows us to reach a high quality level and the Toon Boom pipeline really impressed us with its agility and fluidity,’ said Tiago Mello, Mixer’s executive director of infant-juvenile content.
Doggy Day School is set to premiere on Nickelodeon on Oct. 12, and will start airing in 2010 on TV Cultura (Public Broadcasting) in Brazil.
