Talk to the Snail

Renegade Animation

January 20th, 2006


If you stopped by my office yesterday morning, I wasn’t here. I was spending the A.M. down the road in downtown Glendale visiting with the folks at Renegade Animation. Begun in the garage of Darrell Van Citters by him and and Ashley Postlewaite back in the early 1990’s, Renegade’s become one of the premier independent cartoon companies in town. While this year they’re probably best known for their Annie Award-nominated work on Cartoon Network’s Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi Show, this time next year they’ll best be known for the great work they’ve done on (so far) a pair of Oh Yeah! Cartoons - Mike Gray and Erik Knuston’s “Infinite Goliath” and Anne Walker’s “Mind the Kitty” (both of these shorts are in Flash, and Renegade’s among the best when it comes to the tool). Both Anne and Erik are employees at Renegade, and it was a blast yesterday to see the latest artwork and animation on “Kitty”. I also had the pleasure to see some of Renegade’s latest commercial work as well as a few clips of the music videos they’re creating with songwriter Tom Chapin. Thanks for the tour and the all-around good time, Renegade. It’s great having you part of Oh Yeah!
