We’re getting a legit VRV festival now.
RTX Animation festival is coming and to go along with the first wave of guests the yearly event announced a few months ago, we’re now getting confirmation on a second wave of guests that will include Olan Rogers (Final Space), Blake Anderson (Tigtone), and a slew of others.
To coincide with this announcement, Final Space creator Olan Rogers notes that a 90-second trailer should premiere before then and that a premiere date for the actual series has been narrowed down to a couple of options that make it sound like a summer 2019 premiere is likely. We’re also getting the vibe that we should know the future of Tigtone getting a second season by then so hopefully we’ll get a bunch more to talk about.

Final Space is an American animated space opera comedy-drama television series developed for cable network TBS. The show was created by independent internet filmmaker Olan Rogers with David Sacks serving as showrunner. The series involves an astronaut named Gary and his alien friend, Mooncake, and focuses on their intergalactic adventures as they try to solve the mystery of the titular “Final Space.” The show is distributed internationally via Netflix which includes the UK.
Tigtone is the saga of a quest-addicted hero (Tigtone) who slashes his way through a satirical fantasy universe with melodramatic ferocity and a complete disregard for the collateral damage he inflicts along the way. Combining highly rendered, hand-painted fantasy art, motion capture performance, 2D animation, and pseudo-3D visual effects, the wizards at Titmouse have ventured into uncharted territory to pioneer this radical new style, creating a Tigtone universe that is beautifully unsettling.
