Brain Power Studio Captures Global Distribution Rights To U.K. Preschool Series, Tweedy & Fluff
Brain Power Studio, a global entertainment content creator and distributor, has secured the global distribution rights (excluding the U.K & ROI., China and Sweden), to the Channel 5 Milkshake! commissioned stop-motion animated preschool series, Tweedy & Fluff (40 x 5 minutes). Scottish Gaelic, Irish and Welsh language rights have also been acquired by MG ALBA for BBC ALBA, TG4 and S4C.
Like a small child with their first pet, Tweedy and Fluff go everywhere together. A special bond between two big-hearted pals made from woolly yarn, who met in the sunlit corner of a weaver’s cottage and couldn’t imagine life without each other. This new owner-pet relationship is hugely rewarding and frequently hilarious.
The pint-sized duo demonstrates that the smallest things can really take up the most room in your heart. Created by children’s author, Corrinne Averiss (My Pet Star), Tweedy & Fluff explores love, nurture and friendship through visual comedy. Tenderly realised in handcrafted stop-motion at Second Home Studios, directed by Chris Randall.
This series is supported by the UK Government’s Young Audiences Content Fund. Managed by the BFI, the fund supports the creation of distinctive, quality content for young audiences. Beth Stevenson, Founder and Executive Producer, Brain Power Studio said: “At Brain Power our mission is to procure evergreen properties, and once we saw Tweedy & Fluff we instantly knew this was a special project we had to be a part of. We think the original character designs and heartfelt storylines will resonate with children all over the globe. We look forward to presenting the brand at Mipcom.”
Chris Randall, Director and Founder of Second Home Studios said: “Stop-frame is the perfect medium for stories of humour and tenderness set in the world of craft and textiles. We are thrilled to be bringing Tweedy & Fluff to life at Second Home Studios, continuing a long tradition of handcrafted animation in the UK.”
