Aardman Rights has signed on to distribute Log Jam, a series of short films from Studio Baestarts.
Beastarts has set up deals for Log Jam with Nick for multiple territories and with Canal Plus in France, so Aardman will handle the rest of the world for TV, home entertainment, online, digital, mobile, in-flight and licensing deals.
The Log Jam series was created by animator Alexei Alexeev as a sequel to a short called KJFG No. 5. Alexeev’s animation credits include Mr. Bean and Baby Blues.
‘As Aardman Rights continues to expand its portfolio, we are delighted to add these new films to our own growing slate of in-house productions and hope to support Studio Baestarts in producing a lot more episodes of Log Jam,’ says Sean Clarke, head of Aardman Rights.
