Factory Transmedia has launched its production company at the former facilities of post-production house, Hullabaloo Studios. Based in Altrincham, Factory TM now employs over 30 staff working on CBBC’s Strange Hill High—a half-hour comedy series produced with a technique combining puppets, stop-motion and CG, dubbed “hypervynorama.”
FT has also been working with Chapman Entertainment on CBeebies’ preschool series Raa Raa the Noisy Lion and the company’s first live action feature, Pulp The Movie.
Factory Transmedia’s managing director Phil Chalk, creative director Tim Harper and director Vince James first began working together at Cosgrove Hall on such projects as Danger Mouse, Little Robots and Andy Pandy before being tasked by Chapman Entertainment to set up a stop-frame animation studio for Roary the Racing Car, Fifi and the Flowertots and currently Raa Raa the Noisy Lion. They have also added digital animation and vfx into the business, and have a commission from the BBC to produce the series Muddle Earth.
