Akkord Film, one of Germany’s leading animation production companies and a nominee for the 2018 Cartoon Forum Producer of the Year, has appointed Angela Poschet to oversee all physical production work at the studio. Poschet recently worked on two Academy Award-nominated productions: Isle of Dogs and Revolting Rhymes.
Akkord recently completed its third 2D feature film Raven the Little Rascal – Hunt for the Lost Treasure (sold by Beta Film and premiering at ITFS this week), and is currently putting the final touches on its highly anticipated CG feature The Elfkins – Baking a Difference (sold by SOLA Media). The studio is also in production on 2D series Petronella the Apple Witch (39 x 12’) with ZDF, SERU Film and French producer 2Minutes (sold by Global Screen), and is preparing its next CG feature Rabbit Academy with Austria’s studio arx anime — a sequel to Rabbit School, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival’s Generation+ and at TIFF 2017.
Poschet most recently supervised the production of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion indie Isle of Dogs and was part of the production team of Jan Lachauer, Jakob Schuh and Bin-Han To’s Revolting Rhymes. Both films were nominated for an Academy Award — 2019 Best Animated Feature and 2018 Short Film (Animated), respectively. She also supervised Maya the Bee for German studio M.A.R.K. 13 and worked on Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.
Akkord Film’s CEO, Dirk Beinhold, commented, “We are humbled by Angela’s production credits and proud to have her on board for our expanding international productions in the coming years.”
Poschet added, “After years of commuting between Germany and London, I look forward to new challenges with the ambitious Akkord Film team in my home town, Berlin.”
