BOCA RATON, FL – August 17, 2022 – Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: GROM) today announced that Top Draw Animation, the company’s Philippines-based subsidiary, dedicated to premium animation production services, has been awarded an additional $1.3MM in animation assignments, that will further bolster the studio’s output. Production on the new assignments is anticipated to commence in late Q3-2022. Top Draw has built a global reputation as a reliable source of premium animation services since opening over 20 years ago.

Top Draw – which does not routinely publicly disclose clients or specific projects for competitive reasons and client privilege, brings even more production business to Top Draw’s 400+ animation pros. The studio, based in Manila, continues its increased output under direction of the company’s two recently-installed leaders – TDA President Russell Hicks, who earlier led Nickelodeon’s animation and live action, as well as Top Draw EVP, Jared Wolfson, both of whom assumed their new roles at Top Draw last fall.
“We couldn’t be prouder of the work coming out of Top Draw’s studio right now,” explains Hicks. “When animation veterans like Ant Ward, director of the Netflix film ‘Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ acknowledge the importance of TDA’s role in delivering the story they wish to tell, then we know that we’re at the top of our game.”
Recognized throughout entertainment for its premium production services, Top Draw was acquired by Grom in 2016. The studio serves as a centerpiece of Grom’s offerings, which also include safe social media for kids, web filtering utilized in school districts nationwide and original family entertainment through Curiosity Ink Media, which Hicks and Wolfson also lead.
