Animation Magazine - - Event Focus -

APC Kids, the chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment dis­tri­bu­tion com­pany of bou­tique co-pro­ducer and dis­trib­u­tor About Pre­mium Con­tent, is launch­ing its own pro­duc­tion com­pany Ze­phyr An­i­ma­tion. Based in Paris, the new stu­dio will be headed by APC Kids’ part­ners Lionel Marty, Em­manuelle Guil­bart and Lau­rent Bois­sel. David Sauer­wein, for­mer head writer, story ed­i­tor and script doc­tor for Xilam and Ubisoft, has also joined the en­ter­prise as Chief Creative Of­fi­cer to over­see and man­age all projects cre­ated and pro­duced by the com­pany.

“As we con­tinue to build our port­fo­lio of an­i­mated prop­er­ties it seemed the ideal time to set up our own pro­duc­tion com­pany,” says Lionel Marty, APC Kids’ manag­ing di­rec­tor. “With David join­ing the team we are look­ing for­ward to de­vel­op­ing and pro­duc­ing more of our own shows, as well as work­ing with lead­ing pro­duc­ers from around the globe. We are ex­cited to be work­ing with Vooz on Adoonga, the first show to be made at Ze­phyr An­i­ma­tion!”

The stu­dio’s first project, Adoonga is an an­i­mated com­edy se­ries from South Korean stu­dio Vooz, cre­ators of Pucca. Ze­phyr An­i­ma­tion and Vooz will co-de­velop and co-pro­duce the 52 x 11’ se­ries for kids 8-11 with APC Kids tak­ing global dis­tri­bu­tion and li­cens­ing rights out­side Asia and Latin Amer­ica (avail­able in 2021). Adoonga is the story of a young, good-hearted and ad­ven­tur­ous go­rilla who tries to make it in the big city. Along with his new friends, they seize ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to hone their tal­ents and skills, while also try­ing to sur­vive in the con­crete jun­gle. www.about­premi­um­con­tent.com
