Digital kids network CBBC is expanding its online portal Cartoon Works to become a destination to premiere shortform content ...
[T]he portal will showcase new animation from budding under-18 amateurs through to established professionals. Anyone can submit animation, the best of which will be selected and showcased on bbc.co.uk/cbbc and then transmitted on the CBBC channel ...
Somebody please tell me that the British Broadcasting Corporation is going to compensate the creators of the work that they use, that there will be deals struck and royalties paid to the makers of the content which the BBC is happy to use on air.
That's all going to happen, right?
Meanwhile, CBBC has commissioned a new animated series, Muddle Earth, based on the books by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. It has also ordered another season of Aardman Animation-produced series Shaun the Sheep ,,,
Lemme guess. Aardman is getting paid. Stewart and Riddel and their adaptors are getting paid.
Interesting concept, this pay for work thingie.
