Studio signs on as a production partner on ‘The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder’ for Disney+; scores £6m funding from growth investor BGF.
International animation studio Snipple has teamed up with Disney Television Animation as a production partner on the popular animated series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder for Disney+. Additionally, the studio’s work on DreamWorks Animation’s original series The Mighty Ones has been renewed.
The news comes as May 2021 marks a significant milestone for Snipple, as it celebrates its 10th year. The studio began in a rented 20-meter square office in Manila, space was so small that the studio’s first meeting took place in a local diner and materials were photocopied in a nearby print shop.
Since then, under the leadership of the founders, CEO Kaine Patel, President Jonathan Tinsay, and creative director Romy Garcia, the company has grown from 20 people to over 800 and boasts work with leading animation studios including Disney Television Animation, DreamWorks, and Warner Media. The company’s portfolio of animation includes Animaniacs, Green Eggs and Ham, DuckTales, Where’s Waldo, and Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe.
“I have absolutely loved building our business and have made brilliant connections with some of the world’s leading networks along the way,” shared Patel. “We’ve developed an approach to animation focused on our people, quality, communication and delivery, allowing us to turn our hand to a wide variety of projects.”
“It’s incredible to remember how humbly we began,” added Tinsay. “We’ve built from the ground up and nurtured creativity to support a culture which enables people to flourish. At the same time, we’ve given the local animation industry a fresh outlook that rewards commitment with stability and growth.”
Earlier this year the company announced it had secured £6m funding from growth investor BGF to develop its own IP.
