It’s time to wrap up the year 2014 and wish Happy Holidays to all of our friends! Let’s take a quick look on what our colourful year included. Our main projects in 2014 have been Fleak, Hugo, Niko and Rovio’s Stella:
Fleak is our newest pre-school series in development. Fleak is a sympathetic but very temperamental bug from another dimension. Fleak and his best friends, hyperactive fly JoeJoe and rather passive and pessimistic creature Morphy, live in the colorful and goofy Fleakland. Together they encounter the tiny hurdles of everyday life and make giant discoveries: learning something new every day.
Fleak news in 2014:
We are developing a family feature animation called “HUGO – The World’s Worst Comeback” together with Einstein Film. Hugo was a sensation in the 90s and it became the number one family entertainment game show on national TV in 40 countries watched by over 400 million people. The animation feature will tell a true story of the comeback of the former TV game show superstar.
