editors looking for stories every day. We often pick stories that are trending in mainstream media, but we also feature smaller obscure stories that we think would generate conversation,” she said. “In addition to viral animated news stories, Next Media Animation also develops original creative content across multiple platforms and channels. We are known around the world for our daily satirical news animations.”
The first animation that had traction worldwide was on Tiger Woods’s infamous car accident in 2009, which was picked up by news media outlets around the world, Wu said. “Since then, we have been featured on Conan (we had a ‘feud’ with the host), The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Larry King Live, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and many more.”
Their popular animations in the past have included those on Steve Jobs, the London Olympics, the TSA’s security procedures, and more recently, the disgraced Toronto mayor, Rob Ford.
