London-based kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE has partnered with Australian animation producer Studio Moshi to create Gingerbread Animation; a brand new independent and creator-driven animation house based in Dublin, Ireland.
Gingerbread Animation will create high quality kids animation content producing and developing its own original projects as well as offering tailored creative and production services to third parties and a key all round solution to strategic players in the market.
Talking on the occasion, CAKE, CEO and creative director, Tom van Waveren said, “We are excited to combine Studio Moshi’s production expertise with our joint creative networks and experience to create an entity that will be able to manage its own slate as well as being an attractive partner to third parties. We are looking forward to taking this proposal into the market and building this business into a creative powerhouse.”
Specialising in trad-digital 2D animation, underpinned by Studio Moshi’s proven animation production pipeline and both companies’ editorial skill-set in development and production, the new studio will offer in-house script to screen services including script writing, design, story-boarding, editing, hand crafted TV series and feature length animation and compositing.
Gingerbread Animation is currently sourcing local Irish talent for new and upcoming series productions to be announced separately with worldwide distribution handled by CAKE.
