Spotlight: Aardman


The Aardman highlight The Very Small Creatures, a brand-new stop-frame series for toddlers, launched successfully on Sky Kids in the U.K. late last year.

This year will see the launch of Interstellar Ella, produced by Fabrique Fantastique and Apartment 11. The CGI preschool series was commissioned by VRT Ketnet, Knowledge Kids, Société Radio-Canada, TFO and TVOkids.

Aardman also has plans to launch Lloyd of the Flies, its first in-house CGI-produced comedy series for kids ages 7 to 9.

“Humor and comedy play a strong part in each of these titles, and we’ve yet to find a buyer who doesn’t appreciate being made to laugh,” says Alison Taylor, director of distribution at Aardman. “The storytelling in each of the programs is incredibly strong, with fantastic and identifiable characters in each.”

Taylor adds, “Buyers can always trust Aardman to produce and distribute quality shows.”
