Renowned artist and special effects animator Michel Gagné has just announced on his site that a new series of 10 two-minute animated shorts is in the works. Dubbed the Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppet Show, Gagné plans to bring the shorts to life using “a combination of softwares such as Flash, After Effects, Photoshop, Maya as well as traditional hand drawn animation,” with the help of Flash animator Jayson Thiessen. We’re given a taste of such an idea from a short Flash teaser, found at the link above. Gagné plans to pitch the series to Cartoon Netwrok, Disney, and Nickelodeon in about 2½ weeks, as well as the National Film Board of Canada later on. Here’s hoping the very best of luck for him!
