Nickelodeon has chosen Shawn and Marlon Wayans as judges of the third annual Nicktoons Network Animation Festival.
Also set as judges at the fest, to take place the weekend of Aug. 12 at the Nicktoons Studios in Burbank, are Seth MacFarlane, who created “Family Guy”; independent animator Bill Plympton; Andreas Deja, who did animation on such Disney films as “Beauty & the Beast” and “The Lion King”; and J.G. Quintel, who won last year’s Producers’ Choice and student awards at the festival and is a storyboard artist on the Cartoon Network’s “Camp Lazlo.”
Entries, which are animated films not longer than 10 minutes, come from around the world. The judges winnow hundreds of contestants down to a final 10, announcing the winner as the climax of the festival. Grand prize is $10,000.
