IMDbHow Cartoons Are Made gives you a tongue-in-cheek look at how animations are created, and it's not a pretty picture! While examining the process of creating a short film from script to screen, we're introduced to an artistic, marker-sniffing baby who becomes a paint-huffing young artist, then an overworked animator. Producer Artie Romero appears as himself, bringing in a typewriter-pounding screenwriter, pitching successive storyboards to a pair of unimpressed businessmen. This animated short's voice actors include Chris Hardy and Ron Hayden; the latter also plays himself.

This funny short was conceived as a demonstration of our studio's advanced whiteboard animation capabilities. Companies and organizations who need to communicate complex concepts in an engaging way commission ARG! to produce animated whiteboard videos. This film was named winner of the Gold Award for Animation at the International Independent Film Awards in 2017. The soundtrack says ARG! is located in Colorado Springs, however we moved to a new facility in Stilwell, Oklahoma in August, 2017.
