MIPTV Spotlight: Motion Pictures Distribution


CANNES: White Dragons, which mixes live action with animation, is a teen- and tween-targeted series that Motion Pictures Distribution hopes will have wide appeal.

Meanwhile, MyaGO is a preschool project scheduled to begin production this fall. The show is a co-production between Spain and Ireland that follows the story of an optimistic little girl named Mya. MyaGO has “bright colors and a positive, non-educational message that could be [summed up] by Monty Python’s famous phrase ‘Always look on the bright side of life,’ ” says Jorge Patiño Donaggio, the international sales and co-production manager for Motion Pictures.

Also being showcased at MIPTV is the comedy Pumpkin Reports, which has been presold in such markets as South Africa, France and the Middle East.

“Motion Pictures has begun diversifying its content, aiming at premium, quality co-productions with the most important players in the industry worldwide,” Patiño Donaggio adds.
