Before production begins on an animated series or film, Deep Sky will produce animation tests or an animated short (sizzle reel). If an animated short has not been previously created. Deep Sky will provide animation tests during pre-production for approval with such things as design, tone and style/technique of animation.
Sizzle reels (animated shorts) are an effective tool for building an online fan base, utilized for funding or pitching to Network executives such as Cartoon Network, WB Kids and even Netflix. Sizzle videos shouldn’t be longer than 5 minutes and should clearly represent the series tone, who the characters are, and clearly demonstrates what all future episodes will be like.
