Cartoon Brew

Cartoon BrewCartoon Brew is a widely known and respected web portal devoted to animation.

Founded and edited by animation authorities Jerry Beck and Amid Amidi, the site has been a go-to source for all things animation for a large and growing audience, including your correspondent, since 2004.

Cartoon Brew has just released a newly redesigned website. Crisp and clean, the new site is well organized, with easy to access sections for news from the film and television industries about upcoming projects and ongoing films and series, as well as industry awards, festivals, books, interviews and more.

It also provides an easy to browse interface for my favorite section, “Shorts“, which highlights a variety of animated shorts from across the industry.

You can additionally browse by clicking on one of the red topic headings that accompany the post listings, like “Animators”, “Feature Film”, “Educational”, “Experimental” and so on.

You can also search, of course, or simply browse the archives.

If by some odd chance you love animation and you’re not already aware of Cartoon Brew, I’ll give you my Time Sink Warning as you dive in to their deep, rubber-bottomed pool of animation related goodies.
