African Toons Take Off as Regional, Global Partnerships Blossom
2 November 2017
Africa’s toon boom took center stage in Johannesburg last week, as the continent’s animation biz got a boost from organizers of the Discop TV market Oct. 25-27.
A packed agenda spotlighteds the bold strides being made by African animators to join the global conversation around kids’ content.
“We’re slowly building momentum, and we’re slowly building a platform for role-players across the continent to plug into,” says Nick Wilson, of the African Animation Network (AAN), an open-network platform for African animators and industry associations to connect and collaborate. “There’s going to be a real pan-African buzz represented at Discop this year.”
