 NATAS presents an evening with the Frederator (and creator of the MTV logo) - Fred Seibert

What Fred Seibert does is make original cartoons.

After a successful stint in radio and an award winning career as a record producer, Seibert segued into television as a director of
promotions for The Movie Channel in 1980. In 1981 he was asked to help launch a new 24 hour music channel, MTV: Music Television. He
took on the challenge and sought new ways to bond the network with viewers’ imaginations. The result was the now famous mutating logo
which is one of the most-recognized trademarks worldwide.

Seibert's decision to animate MTV's logo primarily in traditional cel animation was a conscious decision to avoid look-alike solutions and
faddish designs. "I wanted us to be classic, not contemporary," he remarked years later. The results were Clio Awards for MTV and a
special award from ASIFA, the international animation society, and recognition as one of eight "leaders of the new media" by Adweek

In 1998 former Hanna-Barbera Cartoons president Fred Seibert formed Frederator Studios, an independent television production company.
He is the executive producer of six animated series on Nickelodeon’s networks: The Fairly Oddparents, ChalkZone, My Life as a Teenage
Robot, The Nicktoons Network Animation Festival, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (with Susan Miller), and Oh Yeah! Cartoons. He is the founder of
Channel Frederator, the world’s first cartoon podcast network.

In November 2005 Seibert launched his innovative network for distribution on portable video devices, the world's first cartoon video podcast
(or vodcast), which he calls Channel Frederator. Filmmakers submit animated films for weekly exhibition on Apple's video iPods, Sony's
PlayStation Portables, or Archos Pocket Video Players. In quick succession was 'The Wubbcast' for pre-schoolers (with Bolder Media, in
January 2006) and 'ReFrederator' with vintage cartoons (April 2006). Along with their affiliated 'VODcars', the Frederator podcasts are
collectively the most distributed in the world.
