With 12 series in its development pipeline targeting demographics from pre-school through teenagers, Renegade Animation has promoted Brittney Jorgensen to the newly-created post of head of marketing and development. Jorgensen will work with creators, writers and animators in developing concepts for animated television series and features, and serve as liaison with studios, broadcasters and streaming services.
Jorgensen, who joined Renegade in 2012 on the production side, also recently served as production manager on Being by Yourself, an animated short for the Imaginary Friend Society designed to help children with cancer cope with hospitalization. Previously, she was a production manager at Bento Box Entertainment. She also served in a production role at Disney Animation on Tron: Uprising.
Demand for quality, animated content is strong, says Renegade Animation creative director Darrell Van Citters. “With the growth in television and streaming production, now is the right time to focus attention on original programming.”
Renegade Animation has the resources to take shows from concept through delivery in-house. “We love to be involved from the very beginning,” says Jorgensen. “Talent may come to us with a script, a storyboard, a show bible, or just the germ of an idea. We work with creators to develop ideas so that they conform to our style and fit market demand.”
