GLENDALE, Calif.—Continuing to grow its original programming unit, Renegade Animation has promoted Brittney Jorgensen to the newly-created post of Head of Marketing and Development. Jorgensen will work with creators, writers and animators in developing concepts for animated television series and features, and serve as the studio’s chief liaison with studios, broadcasters and streaming services. The independent animation studio currently has 12 animated series in development, targeting demographics from pre-school through teenagers.

Demand for quality, animated content is strong, according to Renegade Animation Creative Director Darrell Van Citters. “We are very excited about the projects currently in our pipeline,” he said. “With the growth in television and streaming production, now is the right time to focus attention on original programming.”

“Brittany is the perfect choice to spearhead our development effort,” adds Executive Producer Ashley Postlewaite. “She has a strong background in animation and adds insight and passion to our team.”

Jorgensen, who joined Renegade in 2012 on the production side, also recently served as production manager on Being by Yourself, an animated short for the Imaginary Friend Society designed to help children with cancer cope with hospitalization. Previously, she was a production manager at Bento Box Entertainment. She also served in a production role at Disney Animation on TRON: Uprising.

Renegade Animation has longtime relationships with the top animation writers and artists in Hollywood, and is unique in having the resources to take shows from concept through delivery in-house.  “We love to be involved from the very beginning,” she says. “Talent may come to us with a script, a storyboard, a show bible, or just the germ of an idea. We work with creators to develop ideas so that they conform to our style and fit market demand.”

Renegade Animation has produced several animated television series including Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, The Mr. Men Show, Captain Sturdy and Tom & Jerry, all for Cartoon Network, and has two Emmy Award nominations for the PBS/WNET show, Oh, Noah!  The studio’s original web series Elmo Aardvark: Outer Space Detective won an Annie Award for Best Animated Series in an Electronic Medium.  Its theatrical work includes the animated holiday feature Christmas is Here Again, which was recently adapted into a musical for the stage.

Renegade Animation is located at 111 E. Broadway, Ste. 208, Glendale, California 91205. Call 818.551.2351 or visit www.renegadeanimation.com
