—They Don't Care About Us
Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years.
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, and if Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer.
An article inthe Korea Herald had the following to say:
“The contract with DreamWorks is meaningful since we will be working as partners,” Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said.
“This has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
A Studio Mir spokesman said details regarding the titles of the cartoons could not be revealed, but that they would be in 2-D.
This is great news for both companies, since each has had some fairly concerning press in the past few weeks, between the financial troubles of Dreamworks Animation (now under direction of new chief financial officer Fazal Merchant) and the on-again/off-again nature of Korra Book Three, now safely on Nick.com.
Speaking of The Legend of Korra, Studio Mir uploaded a lovely picture on Facebook yesterday thanking fans for their support of Book Three.

The animation in Legend of Korra, hate or love the wshow itself, is undeniably beautiful and I can’t wait to see new show(s) using it. Lets pray for continued diversity
Introducing Screamin’ Jay Hawkins:
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, was an African-American shock rock musician. He rose to prominence for his powerful, operatic vocal delivery, and wildly theatrical-avant garde performances, he sometimes used macabre props (like the skull he’s holding in the picture above) onstage, making him an early pioneer of Shock Rock.
HE PIONEERED SHOCK ROCK.
The reason why I bolded these statements is because people (mainly white people) claim Marilyn Mason pioneered Shock Rock when these claims are erroneous(I’m a Marilyn Mason fan myself ). Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was a massive influence to Marilyn Mason’s music, performances etc. Not only Mason, he also influenced bands such as Black Sabbath, The Cramps, Alice Cooper, and The Horrors.
Hawkins’ most successful recording, “I Put a Spell on You” (1956), was selected as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
Don’t let his legacy die, keep his legacy in your memory.
Oh, this is also directed to those who claim black people can’t be theatrical and/or Avant Garde.
