Cartoon Network Releases Action-Packed Ass-Kicking Promo for Animation 'OK K.O.'
The universe of CN’s creation is filled with all that nerd and pop culture so dear to us, especially those who were born in the late 80’s and 90’s.
Ralph Karam, Le Cube’s Creative Director, explains that “using the studio’s trademark mix of different art and animation styles, we were able to translate what we felt Ian Jones-Quartey, the show’s creator, wanted to convey to the audience.
From the nostalgic elements to the use of action movie worthy cameras and shots, we at the studio and everybody at CN LA hope it’s clear that the film is a product of the connection we all feel with the series concept”.
Taking inspiration from the animes that made mornings exciting and the hours of Double Dragon and Sonic The Hedgehog played at the local arcade (right next to the neighborhood bodega), the film explores — in an effortless flow — the mix between different references, so important to the overall tone of the cartoon, and unique art styles that coexist, but were also chosen specifically to match the characteristics and personalities of each character.
“It was a big (but awesome) challenge to blend all the techniques, like pixel art elements in 2D animation scenes”, said Karam, “but the team, along with CN LA, really believe that it pays off by giving the film a very unique look and feel, seamlessly mixing all the references we already loved”.
