Bender tooning up with KeenSpot.com

Berkeley-based site gets repped

The Internet wing of management production outfit Bender-Spink has inked KeenSpot.com as a client. Move gives it 35 relatively unknown animators to manage along with their ideas for Web, film and television projects.

Chris and Terri Crosby, along with nuclear engineering majors Darren Bleuel and Nate Stone, founded the Berkeley-based site in March as a way to distrib interactive comic strips and cartoons on the Web. They plan to branch out and transform the site into a Netcaster, broadcasting other forms of animation as well.

Dot-com’s quirky strips, updated daily, already attract nearly 10 million hits per month — mostly college students and businessmen. Site is now looking to begin syndicating its strips to other sites.

Bender-Spink’s George Collins and Brian Spink will rep the site and its illustrators as they attempt to expand into more traditional animated projects, develop TV shows and films and become screenwriters. Management company has a production deal with New Line.

“We’re going to shepherd them through their infancy and help them make connections,” Collins said. “The company’s made up of some very talented people, and we’re excited to work with them.”

Bender-Spink also reps Web animation sites CampChaos.com, Sarbakan.com, BogBeast.com, JibJab.com and Sakebomb.com.
