Canal+ France has picked up the series I’m a Dinosaur (52 x 2) which was produced by Canadian based Huminah Huminah Animation. The series has also recently been picked up by Discovery Networks for broadcast across Asian territories. The 2D animated series presents the world of the giant creatures as they lived in, more than 65 million years ago. Each dinosaur brings their world to life in their own inimitable style, confiding their quirks, strengths and weaknesses. The series is available in over 40 countries worldwide.
I’m a Dinosaur is based on Brown Bag Film’s ‘I’m a…’ format, with other series including I’m A Creepy Crawly (52 x 2), produced by Monster Entertainment and recently sold to Estonian Public Television, Norwegian Airlines & Irish airline AerLingus, with ABC Australia taking DVD rights. The HD series, which features creepy crawlies introducing themselves and their worlds, launched at MIP Junior last October and was pre-sold to broadcasters in 60 countries including; Discovery Asia, DR Denmark, RTE Ireland, YLE Finland, HRT Croatia, TVO, Knowledge Network, BBC Canada, Noga Israel and Educ.ar – Argentina.
Monster is also developing a game app based on the series with Dublin’s Pixel Wolf Studios with a mid-2013 release date.
