UK-based distribution company CAKE and Australian animation producer Studio Moshi are partnering to create a new toon studio. Based in Dublin, Gingerbread Animation will develop original projects and offer production services to third parties.
Gingerbread is specializing in digital 2D animation using Studio Moshi’s production pipeline. The plan is for development, script writing, design, storyboarding editing on TV series to be completed completely in-house, along with feature-length animation and compositing.
The new studio is looking for local talent in Ireland to start production on projects previously not announced. CAKE, meanwhile, will handle worldwide distribution on all Gingerbread originals.
CAKE has had success in the past with co-productions including Bottersnikes & Gumbles (Cheeky Little Media/Mighty Nice, pictured) and Oscar’s Oasis (co-produced with TeamTO).
Studio Moshi’s recent productions include The Day My Butt Went Psycho, co-produced with Nelvana, and online short series Rocket Dog.
