Cloud Based Cartoon Studio Helps Make a Child’s Room Makeover Extreme
Timbuktoons, a leading pre-production and 2D animation cloud based studio, is pleased to announce its part in ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Augusta, Georgia build.
Augusta, GA, January 20, 2011 – Timbuktoons, a leading pre-production and 2D animation cloud based studio, collaborated with people across the nation to produce a custom illustrated room mural for a deserving 10-year-old who’s never had a room of his own. Their donation of creative services is part of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Augusta, Georgia build.
“One of our core values at Timbuktoons is ‘childhood is important’ so donating our time and creativity to the Augusta EMHE build was a perfect fit with who we are as a company” said owner and founder, Todd Hampson.
Since day one, Timbuktoons has worked closely with organizations across the globe that focus on strengthening and encouraging children through creative media.
For the Augusta EMHE build, Timbuktoons worked with design producers in LA, a mural production company in Minnesota and then a crew applied the wall treatments in Georgia.
“Location isn’t an issue for us. The technology and talent we use allows us to work with clients and studios from all over the world to produce affordable high quality media,” said Sean Copley, Creative Director. “Our customers repeatedly tell us that working with us is like we’re in the next room–we were cloud before cloud was cool.”
