SUPERPROD Acquires Studio 352, Mélusine Productions


The SUPERPROD Group has brought under its umbrella the Luxembourg-based Studio 352 and Mélusine Productions, strengthening its development, production and financing capabilities.

Mélusine, created in 1997, is behind The Kingdom of Kensuké, which recently won best feature film at the British Animation Awards 2024. Also founded in 1997, Studio 352 covers the 2D/3D preproduction line, from character, prop and background design creation to storyboards, layouts and exposure sheets. Studio 352 was a co-production partner on Song of the Sea. 

Stephan Roelants, founder of Studio 352 and Mélusine Productions, said: “Having created, developed and ensured the existence of Studio 352 and Mélusine Productions for 27 years, I’m delighted to be able to hand over the reins to the younger generation. Isn’t it the wish of every company founder and manager to see the development of his/her company continue, thus ensuring a promising future? Joining the SUPERPROD Group will give both companies the opportunity to flourish within a group capable of meeting new market challenges while preserving its Luxembourg identity. A relationship of trust with Clément and Jérémie, built up over many years, gives us the prospect of a solid and pleasant collaboration that will, I’m sure, give both entities new letters of nobility.”

Roelants will continue his role as producer on current projects within Mélusine Productions and will hand over general management to Fabien Renelli, who has worked alongside him for almost 20 years.

Clément Calvet and Jérémie Fajner, SUPERPROD founders, added: “We are very proud of the trust Stephan Roelants has placed in us by handing over to us the studio and the company he has grown as an essential partner for the most prestigious animated films produced in Europe. We’ve known Stephan and the talented teams at Studio 352 for many years, notably through our co-production of the film Song of the Sea, which took us together to the Oscars, Césars and European Film Awards. We would also like to pay tribute to Stephan’s talent and determination, and the reputation of the companies he has developed and placed at the pinnacle of the industry.”
