Cuppa Coffee and Yowza Make Kinetics Dance

Yowza Animation and Cuppa Coffee will join their talents in bringing a unique visual style to Star Farm's THE KINETICS (52x11) with a breakthrough blend of 3D effects and stop-motion animation. Star Farm will introduce the property to international buyers at MIPCOM Jr.

Combining CG character animation based on professionally choreographed dance with stop-motion sets accented with graphic elements and bold, bright lighting, each 11-minute episode of the preschool show will include two segments: a narrative story in which the superheroes' dance moves save the day, and a 60-second live-action "Dance Break" that teaches the featured dance to real children.

"Cuppa Coffee and Yowza have a lot of mutual respect," says Jon McClenahan, Director of Animation at Star Farm Productions, "and all of us are looking forward to learning from each other on this innovative project."
