Goalpost, Sticky Enter Final Development on ‘Sapphires’

Australian indie feature and TV drama producers Goalpost Pictures and kids production house Sticky Pictures have announced they are in the final stages of development on The Sapphires — an animated series based on Goalpost’s successful feature film of the same name.

The Sapphires is a 26 x 22 series aimed at kids 7-12 that blends comedy and character-driven drama with musical elements, following the adventures of Aboriginal teenagers Gail, Cynthia, Julie and Kay on their musical misadventures in a fictional, rural Australian town. The feature film was a top-grossing local production of 2012 and won 12 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, premiered at Cannes and was released in over 16 countries. The soundtrack was a double platinum hit for Sony Music.

“The animated series will stay true to the award-winning elements of the feature film however with contemporary storylines, fresh soulful music and animation it will take on a whole new feel that will be enjoyed by lovers of the movie and will win itself a new generation of fans,” says Sticky Pictures’ CEO and EP Donna Andrews.

The series is being developed with ABC TV Australia and with the support of Screen NSW.
