Animation: Cool is King

In the debate of content versus connectivity, I am firmly in the camp that believes content is king. Or at least, crown prince. Toronto has all the makings for becoming a world leader in producing innovative content, and we are finally seeing the emergence of new companies that may prove this out.

For the last decade, Sheridan has been turning out the world's leading animators, attracting recruiters from Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks. Many of those alumni are now returning home with the dream of building their own studios here. The House of Cool has managed to amass its own repertoire of original content while keeping itself relevant to Hollywood. In addition to great artistic vision, they also have developed a unique digital storyboarding process which can lower the time and cost of production of animated films, as well as mobile content , and can improve game development.

Check out their blog, where you can monitor their progress to becoming the next big thing.
