MIXTAPE is a new animated variety show that highlights the brightest artists around the world. It is the ultimate launchpad for new and off the wall ideas. We are building MixTape with and for the new, best creative minds inside (and outside) of Hollywood as a place to test their limits, their ideas, and push the entire medium forward. Our show is a home for animated shorts, experiments, and entire worlds that our audiences will get to explore for the first time.

Each episode will feel like a mixtape, consisting of recurring shorts and explosive, creative one-offs. Each short will range from 2-5 minutes and showcase a variety of animation styles. Separating each sketch will be a short "off the wall" interstitial.

Episode Structure

RECURRING STORIES AND CAMEOS

Our content is writer-driven. 

We target fast-paced, compelling stories with relatable characters. 

Animation is the medium. 

MIXTAPE is the ultimate incubator and a reliable platform for testing and developing these concepts while simultaneously growing an audience. A successful short could provide enough clout to become an entire franchise.  

Much of the best-animated content started as short stories, nested in shows that would allow an audience to discover it.

Think of MixTape and the Coachella or Lollapalooza of animation where

different ideas and perspectives share one stage.
