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.
Bestselling author/illustrator, Jonny Duddle and Cyber Group Studios, presented the Gigantosaurus trailer based on Jonny's picture book at Cartoon Forum 2015 in Toulouse this month. The forum is an event where all the great and the good of the European animation world gather together to pitch their projects to broadcasters and investors.

Here's some words from Will himself:
Commissioned by Sanrio and The Japanese American National Museum, Tado were asked to create this animation to celebrate Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary. Taking about two months to complete, everything was created in Tado's basement in Sheffield, with a bit of help from their friends Alex Veitch (lighting advisor), Nick Hunter (wood-wizard) and Ben Ridley (music and sound design).
