Blue Ant Media has launched a new animation studio, Look Mom! Productions, to make creator-driven content for children, teens and adults.
Based in Toronto, Look Mom! Productions will be led by Blue Ant alum Joshua Bowen as creative director. The studio is currently in active development on two new animated action-comedies for viewers aged 6 to 11: Toy Hunters, about two brothers who learn that their grandfather used to hunt haunted toys, and Cloudface, following a childlike character who strives to be more mature.
Look Mom! will be seeking co-pro opportunities for these shows at MIPCOM.
“Look Mom! Productions brings Blue Ant Media an incredible opportunity to diversify our content offering with kids’ and animated programming while producing in Canada, known internationally as a hub for world-class animation production,” said Sam Sniderman, the global head of commercial affairs, production. “With Joshua’s leadership in animation and creative storytelling, combined with his off-kilter brand of humor, Look Mom! is well positioned for huge success.”
“Having worked directly with over 500 independent artists and comedians on our existing slate, we are incredibly proud of Look Mom! Productions’ unique approach to talent discovery, which we first developed through a production incubator program of animated shorts,” added Bowen. “We are excited to unveil our first offering of premium kids’ content at MIPJunior this year.”
