U.K.-based Cloth Cat Animation is now the largest single installation of CelAction2D software in the world, snapping up 100 licenses for its Cardiff studio. Cloth Cat is currently in production on Toot the Tiny Tugboat with Lupus Films, and recently finished the series Boj and Llan-ar-goll-en. Upcoming projects include Wind in the Willows: Mole of Mole End with Martin Gates Prod. and Hoho Ent.
“CelAction2D is our preferred tool for 2D animation, and this amount of seats allows us to work on multiple series simultaneously,” said Cloth Cat Animation’s Jon Rennie. “We can be even more attractive as a co-production partner with our advanced skill base and Welsh Government support, and are also developing and producing our own IP in-house.”
“Some of the team at Cloth Cat Animation have been users of our software for over 10 years, and they have developed advanced techniques that redefine the state of the art for 2D production workflows,” said Andy Blazdell, CEO of CelAction. “We’re also working closely with Cloth Cat Animation’s in-house programming team to integrate CelAction2D with their proprietary production management tools … With this unique set-up they can out-perform much larger studios in terms of production speed and quality of animation.”
