In 1975 Newland founded the animated film production company International Rocketship Limited in Vancouver, British Columbia. At Rocketship he produced and directed numerous animated short films including Sing Beast Sing (1980), Anijam (1984), Hooray for Sandbox Land (1985), Black Hula (1988 - which later featured on an early episode of Liquid Television), Pink Komkommer (1991), and Fuv (1999) Beijing Flipbook (2003), Tete A Tete A Tete (2005), Postalolio (2008), CMYK (2010), Scratchy (2016), Katalog Of Flaws (2019).
