Make room for a new player in Brazil’s content distribution business. MoP Brasil Digital, the producer of the CG animated series The Pixcodelics, announced today that it is embarking on a new content distribution path, focusing on the lucrative Latin American market. Based in Sao Paulo, the company has existing strong relationships with local broadcasters and major and alternative DVD retail channels, and will be seeking quality content both of broadcast and DVD/home entertainment distribution.
"Since we began to participate in international TV markets and summits in order to license our own property, we’ve come across a huge amount of programs all made by producers who don’t have a proper knowledge and relationship for distributing their properties in Latin America," says Tony Reis, the company’s exec in charge of content distribution. Reis also notes that the division has screened over 200 programs since last October. Forty title are currently under negotiation and at least four shows are considered for broadcast and 10 DVD titles will be on sale by this April.
According to MoP Brasil Digital’s director of business development, Ferderico Goldenberg, the company has done its homework and is now ready to bring distributors and producers together. "We also welcome international co-productions of animation series and TV formats, taking advantage of our production experience, our own 3D animation studio and very competitive production cost."
MoP Brasil Digital is owned by WebForce Networks, a Brazilian venture capital firm with a history of millionaire deals in the country’s Internet arena, as well as a strong real estate and technology business background . For more information, visit www.webforce.br
