New facility to handle in-house production slate, plus third-party projects.
London-based kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE and Australian animation producer Studio Moshi have partnered to create Gingerbread Animation, a new independent animation house based in Dublin, Ireland.
Gingerbread Animation will produce and develop its own original animated content for kids, as well as offering tailored creative and production services to third parties.
Specializing in digital 2D animation, driven by Studio Moshi’s animation production pipeline and both companies’ editorial skillset in development and production, the studio will offer in-house script to screen services, including script writing, design, storyboarding, editing, hand-crafted TV series and feature-length animation and compositing.
Gingerbread Animation is currently sourcing local Irish talent for new and upcoming productions with worldwide distribution handled by CAKE.
“We are excited to combine Studio Moshi’s production expertise with our joint creative networks and experience to create an entity that will be able to manage its own slate as well as being an attractive partner to third parties,” says Tom van Waveren, CEO and creative director, CAKE. “We are looking forward to taking this proposal into the market and building this business into a creative powerhouse.”
“It is fantastic to be joining forces with CAKE who bring a wealth of experience and significant reputation in the global kids content business. This partnership complements Studio CAKE,” says Andrew Davies, CEO and executive producer, Studio Moshi.
