Over the past few years there have been many panels and initiatives discussing how in Canada we need to be making “Creator Driven” cartoons. It’s time to evolve that conversation as these types of shows ARE being produced in Canada. We are bringing together the creators of 5 recent  ‘creator driven’ Canadian cartoons to talk about their experience. What was their background? How did the pitch go? What was the development like? What was their involvement in the show? What did they learn from production? What would you do differently and what advice do they have for other creators? We will be case studying 2 series that have recently premiered (Mysticons and The 3 Amigonauts), 2 that are premiering over the next year (Cupcake and Dinosaur and Wishfart) and one show that is currently in development (Sprinkle & The Sweet Sugar Magics)
