Get ready to flip your lid: Award-winning Dutch animation team Marieke Blaauw, Joris Oprins and Job Roggeveen (Job, Joris & Marieka) have debuted a new animated children’s series, Swop, based on their International Emmy-winning short film Kop Op (Heads Together). Aimed at kids 8-12, the 12 x 10′ comedy-adventure is screening on Netherlands pubcaster NPO.

Synopsis: Swop tells the story of three friends: Sef, Wesley and Marjory. One day, they discover an abandoned washing machine that seems to possess mysterious powers: it lets you swop your own head with someone else’s. This presents the three friends with a range of possibilities. For every problem they face, they can think up a solution by exchanging heads.

…It goes without saying that this is not the right approach to take, because it often leads to confusing and comical situations. But once they’ve swopped heads, they are literally able to see the world through different eyes. As a result, they go through a transformation that enables them to ultimately resolve or accept their own problem

The Dutch voice cast features Nasrdin Dchar as Sef, Steye van Dam as Wesley and Paulien Cornelisse as Marjory.

The series is produced by Viking Film, co-produced by VPRO and Job, Joris & Marieke, and financed by NPO fonds, VPRO and the Netherlands Production Incentive. Job, Joris & Marieke serves as series directors, with Lotte Tabbers and Luuk van Bemmelen as writers and music by Job, Joris & Marieke.

Attraction is handling sales for the series, with Kaboom on festival distribution.
