Robert Rodriguez Launches Quick Draw Animation
Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is adding even more projects to his crowded schedule with the launch of Quick Draw Animation, which will be based out of Austin, Texas. According to the press announcement, Rodriguez’ Quick Draw Animation will give the filmmaker an outlet for developing, producing and green-lighting animated film and television projects.
“I started my career as a cartoonist when I created the Los Hooligans comic strip. It is nice to come full circle and return to animation. Quick Draw Animation will give me a whole new set of tools to create fantastic characters and to tell great stories,” said Rodriguez.
VMG Entertainment Chairman Mr. Ramkhumar Narasimhan stated, “We are thrilled to be working with a filmmaker of Robert Rodriguez’s caliber and stature. Robert has created significant franchises such as The Mexico Trilogy, Sin City, Spy Kids and the Machete films; his prolific output and visual storytelling make animation a great fit for him.”
The new company has already started developing two animated features, with both projects expected to go into production in the next year. Per the press release, “One of the new company’s first projects is a family focused animated feature and the other is the multi-media realization of Heavy Metal inspired by the cult animated film and long running magazine.”
