Hot news from Tongal: Project Greenlight Digital Studios and Tongal are teaming up to find and produce the “next great animated series.” Right now they’re looking for an original concept that can be developed into a new show. The judges are looking for “unforgettable characters, fun conflict, compelling storylines, engaging worlds, and clever points of view.” Translation: They want to create the next Rick & Morty. God bless them. Here’s the fine print:
Now through December 14, submit your idea in a one-to-three minute pitch video. Five finalists will be selected and awarded $5,000 each to create a “proof of concept” based on their original animated series idea. The public will have a chance to vote for the winning idea on tongal.com, along with a panel of industry judges. The creator of the winning series idea will then receive $70,000 to produce an 11-minute pilot episode based on their concept.
