MIPCOM 2014: Quelque chose des Cartoons

Animation Magazine - - Spotlight -

It’s that mag­i­cal time of year when the Palais des Fes­ti­vals (and any bars within walk­ing dis­tance) in Cannes, France, is jam-packed with con­tent cre­ators and buy­ers from across the globe, hop­ing to make the deal of a lifetime or snap up the next big thing. With all the great an­i­mated con­tent on of­fer, pick­ing a few shows to high­light for our read­ers feels kind of like throw­ing a dart at the wall. Blind­folded. In the dark. But we try, any­way! And be sure to visit us on­line for the lat­est news from the show, Oct. 13-16 at an­i­ma­tion­magazine.net. Pack­age: 52 x 11 Type of an­i­ma­tion: Dig­i­tal 2D Pro­duced by: En­ter­tain­ment One, Birdo Stu­dio; dis­trib­uted by eOne Fam­ily Cre­ated by: Pe­dro Eboli Tar­get au­di­ence: Kids 7-12 Synop­sis: A Cup­cake. A Di­nosaur. Some­how, they are brothers, and they do stuff — like rock out on key­tars like a boss! Sell­ing points: Eboli and eOne have been pretty hush-hush when it comes to de­tails about the project, but if the su­per fun trailer (fea­tur­ing Skrillex) and ran­dom-cute char­ac­ters are any hint, it looks like the next cult show for tweens to 20-some­things. De­liv­ery: Early 2016 Stand: C15.A10

Pack­age: 52 x 11 Type of an­i­ma­tion: 2D Pro­duced by: Am­ber­wood En­ter­tain­ment, Big Jump Pro­duc­tions; dis­trib­uted by Tri­con Films & Tele­vi­sion Cre­ated by: Cory Mor­ri­son (Big Jump), Craig Young and Michael Mil­li­gan (Am­ber­wood) Tar­get au­di­ence: Preschool Synop­sis: Take in the big ad­ven­tures of some very small he­roes: a re­porter fire­fly and his pals, a horse­fly and a spi­der. As they en­counter a va­ri­ety of first-time ex­pe­ri­ences, their prob­lem-solv­ing skills show view­ers how bet­ter to re­late to their world. Sell­ing points: Al­ready picked up by TVOKids, Knowl­edge Kids and Ra­dio-Canada, the se­ries weaves dig­i­tal lit­er­acy, sci­ence, math, tech­nol­ogy and com­edy into its nar­ra­tive to give preschool­ers a leg up on the 21st cen­tury Stand: R7.J7
