Animation grown up

In the 1990s, American series such as South Park, The Simpsons or American Dad lured young people and adults to TV screens. Now, it’s Netflix that attracts this target group with shows like BoJack Horesman or Disenchantment. Critics are also describing the recently-released series Undone as a ground-breaking and genre-bending adult animated comedy drama series. Animation for adults in mainstream platforms and packages may come as a surprise to audiences, but comparing it with animated short films or the works of up-and-coming talents and students, it is clear that there are more animations for adults on offer than for children.

 

These animation productions often deal with mature topics, philosophical or political issues. They are experimental and wild and very rarely cute. However in Germany it is children’s animation that still rules the distribution streams. AG Animationsfilm, the German Animation Association, will discuss this overlooked subject in Germany with the director of Undone, local German producers and representatives of TV channels, looking for new inspiration and models for our industry.
