Frederator Studios founder Fred Seibert and partners Kevin Kolde and Eric Gardner are launching a feature-film co with the stated goal of producing non-CGI animated films for less than US$20 million a pop. The three principals will act as producers on upstart Frederator Films’ initial projects.

The newfound company has more than a dozen projects on the slate, including a feature based on Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack, which aired from 2001-04 in the US; The Neverhood, a film based on the cult favorite claymation PC adventure game from DreamWorks Studios; and The Seven Deadly Sins, a hip hop Flash-animated feature starring the voice talents of boxing promoter extraordinaire Don King.

The Seven Deadly Sins is scheduled to go into production this fall, and moving forward the plan is to produce two films per year.
