With sharks, manta rays and seahorses on all sides, the Barcelona Aquarium was the setting chosen by Neptuno Films to celebrate 15 years of animation production. Almost 200 guests attended a spectacular "Fiesta" for a company that began its career with a mischievous mouse called Balin, and whose characters Connie the Cow, Dougie in Disguise, The Ugly Duckling, Tork and many more can now be seen on TV all over the world.
Neptuno Films' founders, Cristina Brandner and Josep Viciana, were the hosts of an upbeat and convivial evening's entertainment. A 20s-style big band, magicians and caricaturists made sure the fun lasted into the early hours of the morning. The event brought together broadcasters, producers, scriptwriters, artists, composers and even a select scattering of politicians, to celebrate this special date with the Neptuno team.
"We were delighted to welcome so many of the old friends and professionals in the sector who have helped to make our series a success over the last 15 years," said the directors of Neptuno Films.
In 15 years, Neptuno Films' series have crossed borders to reach more than 180 territories and has become one of the most high-profile producers on the international scene. Its creations range from ducks, bears, woodland elves and sparky kids that have won over the very youngest viewers to hopeless kings like KING ARTHUR'S DISASTERS produced with Zenith Ent. Broadcasters are Noggin, ITV, Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Jetix, ABC, France 5, Piwi, Tiji, KIKA, NDR, ARD, RAI, NRK, YLE, EBS, CCTV, among others.
