The Hollywood Reporter's Uncensored Animation Roundtable

Credited As: Stop Motion Animator

I've always proclaimed that Animation in general is the most refined of all the art forms, however out of all the different styles and techniques of animation, I've always sworn that stop-motion is the the most highly skilled, highly focused, highly elegant and seemingly most difficult of them all. I'm so glad in to see more spotlights on stop-motion animators and their methodology and process these past couple years.

Jack is Back!



After over 10 years on ice, Samurai Jack is heading back to Cartoon Network next year. Adult Swim just announced that Genndy Tartakovsky, the animator behind the acclaimed series as well as favorites like Dexter's Laboratory and the animated Star Wars: Clone Wars microseries, is back to produce a new season that will land on Toonami in 2016.

Samurai Jack debuted in 2001, and, over the course of four seasons and 52 episodes, went on to become a cult favorite. The series follows a samurai only known as Jack, who is sent to the distant future by the evil demon Aku. The series earned two Emmys during its run, but was cancelled in 2004, cutting Jack's adventures short and leaving his grand adventure without a proper ending. Now, the journey can continue!
