These guys must be defectors from other animation studios who banded together to start their own company or something.

All the founders were professionals in the industry, yeah. It's one of the things cited in the interview I shared as to why members of the studio think it worked so well -- that it's being run by artists who have done the work themselves (all the three founders have credits on Arcane as art directors or directors) and understand it, rather than management suits.

The portfolio of in-house projects on their website is remarkably thin. A few music videos, one other series and Arcane. That's it. Incredible. 

They first worked in advertising, working for major corporate clients like Coca-Cola and Panasonic, then branched into music videos and so on. Hard to find a listing of commercial credits for anyone. But yeah, quite the story.

Arcane won all 9 awards for which it was nominated at this year's Annie Awards. Well deserved.

Spoiler

It was Arcane, in the end, that was mentioned most tonight, taking the big TV categories that also included Writing, Animated Effects, Character Animation, Character Design, Production Design, Storyboarding and Directing.

On the heels of that, I saw that Riot made a big investment in Fortiche, though still a non-controlling stake. Two of their executives joined Fortiche's board. 

Very well-deserved.
