Australia’s SLR Productions has announced the creative team on its animated series Captain Flinn and The Pirate Dinosaurs which was recently green-lit for production with partners Nine Network, ZDF Enterprises, Telegael and Top Draw Animation.
Exec produced by Suzanne Ryan of SLR Productions, the series will combine the creative expertise of Greg Ingram as Director, Jo Boag as Studio Creative Director, Yasmin Jones as Line Producer, Melanie Alexander as Script Producer and David Evans, David Witt, Cleon Prineas, John Armstrong, Tom Mason, Dan Danko, Rachel Spratt and Bruce Griffiths as the series’ script writers.
The 52 x 11 minute series is based on award winning picture books by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto and will be developed by Jo Boag, Melanie Alexander, Steve Moltzen and Rachel Spratt.
“We have the very best of creative talents on board for Captain Flinn and The Pirate Dinosaurs,” says Ryan. “Each of the team will bring their many years of experience and knowledge in animation to make the series irresistible to audiences locally and internationally.”
“The Telegael design team is super excited about ‘Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs,” says Yvonne Hennessy, Telegael’s head of animation. “It has a unique style and will be a fun series to be part of. I was aware of the books and am really looking forward to working with the creative crew to bring them to life.”
“This is the third series we’ve had the pleasure to collaborate on with SLR Productions and also with Telegael,” says Wayne Dearing, managing director of Top Draw Animation. “It’s a terrific team and a proven formula that guarantees a fabulous outcome. As for Captain Flynn… his brand of irreverence and general silliness is right up our alley and promises some happy sailing ahead.”
