Looking to increase its comedic talent pool and expand its development slate, Nickelodeon has announced the creation of a new animated shorts program that will produce 10 one-minute shorts that could be turned into longer animated comedy series to air on the US kidsnet or Nick.com.
Nickelodeon is accepting submissions in all styles (2D, digital 2D, stop motion, CG or mixed media) from animation talent including artists, designers, writers and directors from inside and outside its network.
Comedians selected to produce a short will be given artistic and production support by Nickelodeon and the shorts will be produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, California, which produces hit series like The Fairly OddParents, T.U.F.F. Puppy and SpongeBob SquarePants.
More information can be found here and the deadline for submissions is March 30 at 6 p.m. PST.
