Seven-minute pilot episode featuring a friendly young alligator living in a semi-tropical paradise was funded by Creative Europe with sponsorship from Adam Selly’s Union Media.
LONDON -- The development team at Illuminated Films was searching for something fresh and, led by our Head of Development, decided to create it themselves. The result is Caiman, a friendly young alligator living in a semi-tropicalparadise. His world is full of color not just the vegetation but also the cast of characters that inhabit this lively mangrove community.
With an award from Creative Europe, illuminated developed Caiman into a project that has been selected for Cartoon Forum, with sponsorship from Adam Selly’s Union Media. The new approach has created a ‘stand out’ authentic character that is relatable to young audiences everywhere. The pilot, which has been written by talented writer Moya O’Shea and directed by Sue Tong, is now complete and will be launched with an advertising campaign that will be Illuminated’s first.
Look out for the friendly face of Caiman in the build up to presentations at Cartoon Forum and MIP Junior!
