Our efforts to conquer the world, using only stop motion animation, came one step closer last week when we signed up for representation in France with the misleadingly named Tobago Films.These charming and talented people set up shop in 2000 with a solid experience in features and now produce a vast number of premium spots for the increasingly busy French market.
Their ridiculously impressive roster already includes Jean Pierre Jeunet (Amelie & Delicatessen), Harold Zwart and the rather talented, and increasingly successful, Matteo Bonifazio. No pressure then.
Luckily for us this year has seen us add a whole host of great brands and spots to our reel.
With the history of animation in France being so long and distinguished we’re hoping that by finding a home in this awesome country we might be able to rub shoulders with some of the people who have helped develop their impressive legacy of creativity.
Failing that at least we break up the journey with a cup of tea at their office on our way to accept all of our awards in Cannes next year
