An­niver­sary Shout-outs from In­dus­try Friends

Animation Magazine - - Tv -

Happy birthday, Coper­ni­cus! It’s been a plea­sure work­ing with you all on var­i­ous projects over the past few years. Your pas­sion for the art of an­i­ma­tion, your level-head­ed­ness, vast ex­pe­ri­ence and global ap­proach are what make you such a trusted and go-to part­ner in our ever chang­ing in­dus­try. To the next 15!”

Lind­say Wat­son, an­i­ma­tion pro­ducer, CANUK Pro­duc­tions

I first met Paul, Mur­ray, Juan Cruz and the Coper­ni­cus team while work­ing on our Rid­ing Shot­gun an­i­ma­tion project back in the day with Gail Ber­man and Andy Weil. We had Michael Davis di­rect the short film, and some great voice ac­tors, but ul­ti­mately the net­work at the time (Spike TV) passed on it, and even­tu­ally put the short on Youtube, end­ing up with mil­lions of views. Through the years since then, the Coper­ni­cus guys be­came good friends as well as col­leagues. Their cre­ativ­ity, in­tegrity and hon­esty are the main rea­son for their suc­cess — they de­liver what they prom­ise! And Mur­ray’s beard is le­gendary — Cana­dian through and through!”

I find Paul and his very tal­ented team an ab­so­lute plea­sure to work with. I feel there is a strong syn­ergy be­tween the way Coper­ni­cus is run and the way Camilla and I run Lu­pus Films. We have the same busi­ness ethics and creative taste which is es­sen­tial for any co-pro­duc­tion part­ner­ship. We are very much look­ing for­ward to a fruit­ful Cana­dian co-pro with Coper­ni­cus on our next pro­duc­tion, My Big Red Head, and we con­grat­u­late them on their an­niver­sary year.”
