APC Launches Zephyr Animation
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
