Italian children’s entertainment producer and distributor Atlantyca recently signed a deal with Russian animation studio Aeroplane Productions to bring Russia’s top-rated animated series The Fixies in Europe, Malaysia, Singapore and Korea. The announcement was made jointly by Claudia Mazzucco, CEO of Atlantyca, and Michael Mennies, director of intl. productions for Aeroplane Productions.
Targeting children (four- to nine-years-old), The Fixies (104 x 6 minutes) was created by Aeroplane Productions and is produced by Aeroplane, The Riki Group and Petersburg Animation Studio. The colorful toon follows the misadventures of Tom Thomas and his friendship with Simka and Nolik, the children of the tiny family that secretly lives in his apartment fixing the multitude of machines and gadgets all around them. Luckily the Fixies have the knowledge, skills, and tools to figure out a problem and solve it in this funny and educational series about how things work.
“We are very happy to have Atlantyca distributing The Fixies for us. Their expertise in international distribution, publishing, and licensing combined with their genuine enthusiasm for our show is just what we were looking for in a distributor as we launch our brand internationally,” said Mennies.
“The Fixies is the perfect property for Atlantyca, not only is it a thoroughly amazing creative animated series, it is a property that has huge multi-platform potential which is the core of Atlantyca’s brand building,” said Pedro Citaristi, Atlantyca’s sales manager who secured the deal.
