Building entertainment brands.

The current market situation requires brands to explore a series of market windows. The Ánima Kitchent team has extensive experience in the creation of transmedia narratives, i.e. in producing contents that adapt to each market window: TV, Youtube, Apps, Web, video games… based on a story specific to each of these platforms.

Ánima Kitchent contents go hand in hand with a brand strategy that facilitates their commercial use through Licensing and Marketing agreements in as many countries as possible.

ÁnimaKitchent’s strong points.

Ánima Kitchent’s experience combines talent management, brand strategy definition and the creation and development of content that integrates both social and financial partners. It can be broken down into four key points:

  • Creative development: creative development is the cornerstone of our contents and the foundation of the strategy of any production company. We try to apply a concept that we call “Smart Creativity” and we establish creative frameworks considering the following steps: strategy, internationality, cost and profit. We also take into account transmedia narratives, i.e. new outlets and platforms: TV, Youtube, Apps, Netflix, video games, etc.
  • Strategic design: we aim for content that will resonate with an international audience, even when presenting a local story, by using values that can be recognized all around the world. We also focus on establishing our products as entertainment brands.
  • Finance model: we find the most appropriate fit for each project. Aside from financing our content, we expect our partners to add value beyond their production investment, such as toy manufacturers, digital platforms, publishing companies, etc. In other words, we team up with industry partners that will also benefit from the intrinsic value of the project.
  • Business viability: every project needs to be economically viable. With that in mind, we try to optimize our ROI possibilities, seeking the most appropriate uses and the best investment optimization options. We design business plans on a project-by-project basis, outlining specific economic goals.
