  • In this group, 30% were co-pros with two or more European countries.
  • France had the highest number of projects—22 over all, followed by U.K. with 14, Spain with 11 and Poland with five.
  • The average budget for these projects is estimated to be about 7,670 euros ($10580) per minute.
  • About 35% of these projects were conceived for other media platforms.
