The ARG! studio has a contract to produce a half-hour TV special, an "all ARG!" episode of the syndicated independent film showcase Sprockets & Splices. It will be hosted by ARG! founder Artie Romero's character Artie Stick along with the Splice Girls, and broadcast on independent stations in over 100 U.S. cities. The show will also be seen worldwide on Roku TV. As of this writing, we are adding a new Artie Stick cartoon to the show, "Mad Scientist Plot," a six-minute sci-fi spoof loosely based on Romero's 1977 comic book story. Special thanks to producer Joel Stephens for this opportunity!
The studio has moved from Colorado Springs to beautiful Stilwell, Oklahoma. All our contact information including phones, email and website are unchanged. Our new studio has updated facilities and systems to better serve our clients, reduce overhead costs and make more assignments available for our growing staff.
Congratulations to ARG! director Matt Rebel for winning a Gold Award from International Independent Film Awards for How Cartoons Are Made. Also, our studio's new animated short Lear's Nonsense starring Ron Hayden was just named an official selection by Blissfest333, and actor Morgan Freeman contributed commentary for our production of Pedro at the Rainbow Bridge. Thanks to all our hard-working team members for turning in such splendid performances!
Lately our studio has been buzzing with activity, working on up to 14 films simultaneously, including TV cartoon episodes, Maya animations for software products, TV commercials for New York ad agencies, 4K Web videos for businesses and engaging explainer videos.
