Mondo TV Iberoamerica’s production center anticipates strategic changes that include CG animation and IP development.
Mondo TV Iberoamerica has announced a major expansion for its fast-growing production center Mondo TV Producciones Canarias. The production studio, which already plays a key role in pre-production and visual development for many Mondo TV productions and co-productions, will expand its offering to include a 3D CGI production capability while also generating new in-house IP.
The strategic upgrade of offices and equipment will be accompanied by recruitment of experienced illustrators and animators. The new facility, which will be up and running in September 2020, is currently negotiating a contract for its first project. The new studio will fundamentally change both the future strategy of the Spanish subsidiary and the production dynamics of the entire Mondo TV Group, bringing more work in-house with subsequent cost and quality control benefits.
Launched in 2016 with an initial focus on pre-production, Mondo TV Canarias quickly increased its role within the Mondo TV Group assuming pre-production services and complete visual development for multiple animated series, including Invention Story and some of the group’s biggest recent animation projects such as MeteoHeroes and Robot Trains 3. It has also built an impressive roster of IPs through strategic co-productions such as Bat Pat2 (with RTVE) and Nina & Olga, the animated adaptation of the popular preschool publishing property Olga the Cloud (with Enanimation).
“This development is the realization of my father Orlando Corradi’s dream – and a giant step forward for the Mondo TV Group,” commented Mondo TV Group president and CEO, Matteo Corradi. “The launch of an internal facility for 3D CGI animation will enhance both the quantity and quality of Mondo TV Group output, and further boost the international reputation of Mondo TV among producers of animated programming. We will, of course, continue to collaborate with the third-party studios that have distinguished themselves in recent years, but with our own animation studio we will move towards a future where in-house excellence will be a driving force. In fact, thanks to the even tighter and closer quality control this new facility will enable, we will be able to create our top programs entirely in-house.”
“This strategic decision is a big step for the entire group,” added Mondo Tv Iberoamerica CEO, Maria Bonaria Fois. “We are proud of the results achieved by the Canarian studio since its very beginning, and confident that the new 3D studio will bring us even more recognition on the international animation market.”
