Echo Bridge Industry News — Echo Bridge

Hey friends,

Esteban here. It's been a minute, and no, I'm not coming back on social media... Yet... Either way, I just wanted to jump on here to say thanks to everyone that's been with us from the start, and to thank those joining us on this really strange journey called "Animation."

If you've been reading our articles and paying attention to what's happening in our industry, then you should be excited to see Animation really starting to take its place as an important creative medium. Everywhere around the world, people are looking to animation as a better means of sharing their story, their idea, their message than traditional conventions.

The old way of doing business... Those are fading out. As they should.

Welcome to the new age of animation everyone.

We're just beginning.

If you haven't been following our articles and work... What's wrong with you? Get on it already. There's a really nifty link you can click on and read up on all the latest headlines and trends. We post our long format thoughts and opinion pieces there too.

So get on it or get left behind.

Cheers!

Have you heard of Echo Bridge Productions yet? They are a St. Pete based award-winning animation production company and studio! Our own Victoria Jorgensen had a chance to talk with Esteban Valdez of Echo Bridge recently. He's very articulate about modern animation storytelling. Check it out!
Echo Bridge's fondness for the old school made it the right company to animate the bizarre 'Sugar and Toys' series that just wrapped its first season still available on Fuse.
Hello echo bridge I am Pherunme Phasunlade I saw the animation tutorials you guys did on YouTube but I could only see five and the channel have been inactive for seven years now your tutorials have been helpful where can I have access to them or better still continue to make more tutorials on YouTube if you guys have a new channel that I am unaware of please comment below
Meet Esteban – a filmmaker, artist, inventor, animation extraordinaire (aka owner + founder of Echo Bridge). This 2D animation studio has been around for 10+ years, however the list of cutting-edge content created by this team is endless. You might have seen the work – Echo Bridge Pictures has produced content for Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street Workshop… just to name a few! ✨ Esteban knew St. Pete was the right place to grow a business from the support of community members and knowing that he had planted his business in fertile land – “things here just grow,” he said. Esteban and his team provide a full-service production in the heart of downtown St. Pete. The passion and love for the work is palpable and simply multi-dimensional. #BurgBiz
