This month we're celebrating all things CLAUDE!
We're very excited to announce that Alex T. Smith's Claude will be adapted into an animated series by BAFTA-winning Belfast-based animation studio, Sixteen South, for Disney Junior EMEA. The new series has just gone into production and is due to air in 2017 - there will be 52 episodes for boys and girls aged 4 to 6 and Sixteen South are keen to evoke the unique visual style of Alex's original pictures.
Here at HF Towers we spend a lot of time looking at illustration. So much so, it takes something really special to cut through and make us stand up and take notice. Earlier last month we had just that reaction when we chanced upon the work of Guillaume Kurkdjian.
Arena is very excited that another of our talented artist's, Adam Stower, was also at this year's Cartoon Forum. The trailer forTroll and the Oliver, based on Adam's picture book was pitched to the group of broadcasters as a special, one-off 26 minute animation by Grid Animation in Belgium, in collaboration with Zooper Film and Tinker Labs. Aimed at 6 to 8 year old children, the TV special will be a 3D computer animation.
