Ottawa, Canada-based indie production house Genuine Pictures is in pre-production on the company’s newest series, Beats in Bites, which is set for broadcast on TVOntario in early 2012.

Beats in Bites is a live-action/CG-animated series that celebrates the art of beatboxing. It stars Canadian beatbox artists Julia Dales (pictured) and Ammar Abou-Agena and four young future beatbox talents. In each episode, Julia and Ammar teach the children how to produce sounds using the mouth, lips, tongue and voice.

The 32 x 7-minute series goes into production at Ottawa’s Fuel Studios in August. International distribution is being handled by Toronto, Canada-based CCI Entertainment while Visual Education Centre/Learn 360 will distribute the series educationally.
