Toronto-based Blue Ant Media’s animation studio, Look Mom! Productions, and Brazilian prodco Boutique Filmes have signed a new co-pro agreement for The Great Hotel Rudini Illusionism.
The 26 x 11-minute animated children’s show will be written by the Look Mom! team while the animation is handled in Brazil by Boutique and animation studio Birdo. Targeted at 8 to 11-year-olds, the kids comedy follows a once a renowned meeting place that now lies empty when young Rudini inherits it, and brings with him big tricks and illusions.
Scheduled for delivery in 2020, the series will be available for presale at MIPJr this weekend in France.
Look Mom! was unveiled a year ago when Blue Ant announced that less than a month after adding children’s content to its distribution slate, the prodco also wanted to own its own offerings. At the outset it began development on two animated projects—Toy Hunters and Cloudface.
