“These days, our biggest challenge is to keep up with the demands of the market place in terms of creating new content that is fresh, new and appealing to the ever-changing audience’s taste. Animation has never been healthier from the creative point of view. A wide range of new styles and themes are continuously changing our perception of what’s animation. While network television seems to be stalling, cable and the internet offers bigger and newer possibilities.”
