young animator project

anonymous asked:

I'm interested in those kid/cartoon and anime witch shows you mentioned. (unless it's actually W.I.T.C.H which I've watched a thousand times)

It wasn’t gonna be W.I.T.C.H at all! I actually don’t recall that one, lol.

I am basically gonna stick to anime for this list, jsyk, it got way too long… There are a few specifically about witches, while some are just about magic in general. (It’s a sparse genre man.) These are ones I have personally watched, were recommended to watch, or have at the very least heard of.

I am also terrible at doing summaries but here we go!

Young Animator Training Project - Wasurenagumo OVA (English Sub)

WHAT KIND OF ENDING????

Unfinished Project: The DC Animated Multiverse.

This was a project I started about a year or so ago and I had nearly lost when my computer hard drive died. Sadly I never went back to it and even now I just get the urge to redo it after spotting some things that nag me.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

So we’ve been getting hints for a while now, but WB hasn’t done much in the way of advertising – someone needs to retrain their marketing department. This means we DC Nation fans need to make up the difference.

One of Giancarlo Volpe’s (previously) secret projects has been revealed to be JLA: Trapped in Time and is set for release on Tuesday, January 21st as a Target Exclusive DVD (running time is estimated about 52 minutes).

Other DC Nation and Avatar: The Last Airbender familiar names on this project include: Jason Spisak, Grey DeLisle, Dante Basco, Jack DeSena, Kevin Michael Richardson, Laura Bailey, Diedrich Bader, Frederik Wiedmannand Lynell Forestall.

Despite the unclear cover art, this is brand new content helmed by our much beloved Ceiling Giancarlo. I hope I’ll see fellow Fanterns picking up the DVD at a nearby Target this coming Tuesday.

This suddenly appeared in my youtube recommendations section. From what I had gathered this was from  the Anime Mirai, or the young animators project, originally made back in 2012. As far as I know this is a one-off so there are no more episodes available or anything else.

I liked this, it reminded me of of some of the late 80s early 90s animations of anthro cartoon shows that I recall watching.
