Two animated series pitched by graduates of the Brazilian TV Producers’ International Training Program in Animation have scored production deals through a special pitching session at the annual Forum Brasil.
Captain Constantine and the Salty Pudding Island, from Split Film, was nominated as best program at the event by a jury of executives from such outlets as Cartoon Network, Discovery Kids, MTV Brasil and Nick.
Mirabolica, producer of the second series, Jorel’s Brother, won a $20,000 award to develop the project and it is likely to appear next year on Cartoon Network Latin America as a 52 x 11 min. series.
The pitch session was the second part of the International Training Program in Animation, which was hosted by BTVP in May and was attended by more than two-dozen Brazilian production companies. The top five Brazilian projects in the program were given the chance to pitch to the panel of U.S. and international broadcasters.
