iW NEWS | Seibert Launches Animated Feature Venture

Frederator Studios founder Fred Seibert has launced Frederator Films, a new company for animated 2-D feature genre films. He is launching Frederator Films with Kevin Kolde and Eric Gardner. Its first three projects include a feature based on Genndy Tartakovsky‘s animated TV series, “Samurai Jack“, Doug TenNapel‘s “The Neverhood” based on the cult claymation PC game, and Dan Meth’s hip-hop animated feature, “The Seven Deadly Sins.” The company plans to make two films per year. “Our studio’s successes have been built on the best creative talents in the animation business,” said Seibert in a statement. “Genndy Tartakovsky, Doug TenNapel, and Dan Meth are continuing a tradition of original cartoons we began in 1998 and moving it into feature films.” [Eugene Hernandez]
