Meet the Frederators: Dan Toth, Marketing Manager, Frederator Networks  

Dan Toth joined the Frederator/NY team recently as our marketing manager, and though I quizzed him at lunch the other day, it would probably best for him to introduce himself. 

“I grew up in New Jersey and went to college in South Carolina before returning north to start my career. I spent about 6 years in advertising prior to coming to Frederator. My twitter bio says I’m a geek-of-all-trades; an idea man with a penchant for design and technology.” 

A perfect Frederator match! On to the seven questions. 

1 What are you into right now?

CryptoKitties. It’s an virtual online cat collecting / trading game built on the blockchain. Think Beanie Babies meets Bitcoin. I’ve sadly fallen deep into the craze and have found myself bidding on cats late into the wee hours of the morning.

2 How did you meet Frederator?

I had always seen the Frederator tag at the end of Adventure Time episodes, so that’s how I knew about it. My kickball teammate, (now coworker) Jeremy, surfaced an opportunity here and I jumped on it immediately. And here I am!

3 Describe your work. Is it what you expected to be doing with your life?

My formal occupation title is “Marketing Manager”, but it’s much more fun to say that I work in the cartoon business. I make sure all of our shows are being spread around to as many people as possible while keeping our fans informed and happy. I never knew what I’d be doing with my life, but this is a pretty sweet place to be so far.

4 Do you watch television? (Is that different to you than watching video through the internet?)

I would say I DON’T watch TV; yeah I think it’s different even if I’m watching video thru the Internet on my television. Been a cord cutter since 2012.

5 What’s your favorite cartoon of all time?

Courage the Cowardly Dog takes the number one spot, specifically the episode with the hunchback.

Some other favorites are Dexter’s Laboratory, Clone High, and Rugrats.

6 Where do you live? Will you live there forever?

The big apple! NYC. Every time I think about leaving I just can’t imagine living without the champagne of tap water and the only honest bagels on the globe. Bagels and water are very important to me. Time will tell if fate can tempt me away from New York. I could see myself in Japan, New Zealand, or California.

7 Answer a question of your own for us.  

What’s the scientific term for a brain freeze?

Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia. I get one almost every time I eat ice cream and was always wondering why it happened, so I looked it up frequently and wound up memorizing the term.

Thanks Dan!

Meet the Frederators: 7 Questions* for Amanda McCann, Line Producer on Costume Quest at Frederator Studios. 

Things have been so hectic this year that I haven’t had a chance to keep up my regular visits west to Frederator Studios. And so far, I’ve never even been over to the Frederator Annex in Glendale where our Costume Quest production for Amazon is going on. So meeting some of the team through 7 Questions gives me a little insight to the great pros that are making the show.

Amanda McCann, Costume Quest’s line producer and daily adult** supervision, is a classic native of LA who performed and taught improv comedy and jumped right into animation as a receptionist at Wildbrain at their SoCal peak of HBO’s The Ricky Gervais Show and then right into Hasbro’s GI Joe: Renegades, Mattel’s Monster High, and Nickelodeon’s Sanjay and Craig, just to name a few.

“When I’m not making cartoons I enjoy playing with my corgi-husky, Dobby, watching horror movies, and inventing new character voices, to my boyfriend and neighbor’s dismay.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

** Yes, I know it’s a cartoon crew.

1 What are you into right now?

I’m very much into doing escape rooms at the moment. They’re so fun, and they combine my love for puzzles, game shows, and geeky board games.

2 How did you meet Frederator?  

I was pitched to be the Line Producer on Costume Quest by the Supervising Producer, Bryan Casselli, whom I worked with at Nickelodeon. I met with Kevin Kolde (Frederator’s VP of Production) and the rest is history.

3 Describe your work. Is it what you expected to be doing with your life?

I help hire all the crew members, create the production pipeline for the series, oversee the day to day tasks of my production team, generate lots of lists and schedules, and support all departments in any way possible. I also like to think of myself as the morale booster and cheerleader of my crew. I never expected this, but my career in animation far exceeds my expectations. Cartoons have always been a huge part of my life, and now I have the privilege of having a hand in making them. 

It’s a dream come true!

4 Do you watch video? 

Yes, I watch oodles of television and it is all via streaming sites. Thank you, the Future.

5 What’s your favorite cartoon of all time?

That is an incredibly difficult choice for me, so I will give you my top 3 favorite cartoons of all time - Animaniacs, The Simpsons, and Rocko’s Modern Life.

6 You live in [your town here]. Will you live there forever? 

I’m in Valley Village [California] currently, but I do hope to travel the world and possibly live elsewhere at some point. I’m an LA native, so I think I would be doing myself a huge disservice if I never got out. 

7 Answer a question of your own for us.

Besides producing animation, what else have you done?

Well, I am so glad you asked. I’m also a writer, and have written for The Simpsons comic books, the Monster High web series, and Netflix’s Ask the Story Bots! In addition to writing and producing, I am a professional voiceover actor as well. You can hear me on Nickelodeon’s The Loud House, The Disrespectoids web series, and I even did a few parts on Frederator’s Costume Quest, so be on the lookout for that when it drops on Amazon sometime in 2018!

Thanks Amanda!
