Newer Media

So Warner Bros. puts out a press release:

... Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC Entertainment, announced today the launch of the all-new, and, three new entertainment destinations for kids that will engage fans with all their favorite Warner Bros. characters and DC Comics Super Heroes in a dynamic immersive experience, featuring original new content. ...

Additionally, an international market rollout in Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Spain and the UK is planned for the coming months. ...

A rep from SAG-AFTRA called and asked me if I knew where these semi-cartoons were being done. Actually I'd never heard of them, but after phoning around to my spies and stoolies, the information I came up with is: they were "motion comics" (or somesuch) being done in New Zealand.

When I relayed this information to the SAG-AFTRA rep, he seemed to lose a wee bit of interest. (Apparently SAG-AFTRA's jurisdiction doesn't extend to New Zealand. Who knew?)

Seems like normal Flash animation to me. But since it's done in New Zealand, it's a moot point.
