The ARG! studio created cool animation sequences for the Spongebob Squarepants Tickler app for MTV Networks' Nickelodeon, and you can grab it now from the iPhone app store or from Google Play. It was fun to create original animations of Spongebob, who has 54 million fans on Facebook.
We created a GIF collection that includes tens of thousands of ARG! images and animations, so get your copy now. Selecting prime clips from our archive of original GIF cartoons, graphics and animations, Ricky and Tim Romero helped compile the ARG! Kartoon Kollection which includes 57,000 GIFs. Pick one CD or grab all 8 in a handsome vinyl portfolio for only a fraction of a cent per cartoon. These great cartoons and graphics come with a commercial license for your website, videos and emails, and downloads are now on sale too.
For the past ten years, the ARG! crew has enjoyed our 3-story studio building in Colorado Springs, and we're gearing up for production of more movie and TV animation. Our productions are full 4K resolution, and more animators and artists are joining ARG! If you are an animation student or graduate and want to get some studio experience and screen credits, why not apply for an internship? A virtual intership means you won't have to move to Colorado Springs. We've helped more than 160 talented artists get their start in the animation industry.
ARG! clients include HP, Kaiser Permanente, Duracell, Transamerica, PBS, Safeco Insurance and Red Bull. See some of our screen credits and awards.
