Superprod Group Acquires Studio 352 and Mélusine Productions

The SUPERPROD GROUP announces the acquisition of STUDIO 352 and
MÉLUSINE PRODUCTIONS, both based in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, in a move to
strengthen its development, production and financing capabilities for premium animation films
and series.

The SUPERPROD GROUP intends to support the development in Luxembourg of the studio
and production company, and more generally of animation in all its forms.
MÉLUSINE has made a major contribution to putting Luxembourg at the center of the world
animation scene, and continues to do so with the recent delivery of The Kingdom of Kensuké,
recently awarded Best Feature Film at the British Animation Awards 2024, the launch in the
coming months of new film productions with renowned studios FOLIVARI, CARTOON
SALOON and SUPERPROD ANIMATION, and the development of new first-rate projects.
MÉLUSINE has been involved in some of the most important animated films produced in
Europe in the last 27 years, and STUDIO 352 has built up a team of top-level artists and
technicians who are contributing to the growth of Luxembourg animation, with the constant
and determined support of the Film Fund Luxembourg.
These companies will receive additional technical (including the full USD pipeline developed
by SUPERPROD) and financial resources to strengthen their foothold among the world’s top
animation producers and take part in ever more ambitious projects.
STUDIO 352 and MÉLUSINE will be able to rely on the SUPERPROD Group for their
development, and more specifically on its production entities in France, Italy (RED MONK
STUDIO) and the USA (THE COPRODUCTION COMPANY), its diversified activities in
international sales (SUPERIGHTS) and music project management and music rights (440Hz),
as well as its partnerships with major international studios in Europe and the USA.

The SUPERPROD GROUP will also support the reinforcement and development of STUDIO
352 and MÉLUSINE’s teams, who will benefit from opportunities for collaboration and career
advancement within the SUPERPROD GROUP.
Stephan Roelants will continue his role as producer on current projects within MÉLUSINE
PRODUCTIONS, and will hand over general management to Fabien Renelli, who has worked
alongside him for almost 20 years.
Stephan Roelants comments: “Having created, developed and ensured the existence of
STUDIO 352 and MÉLUSINE PRODUCTIONS for 27 years, I’m delighted to be able to hand
over the reins to the younger generation. Isn’t it the wish of every company founder and
manager to see the development of his/her company continued, thus ensuring a promising
future? Joining the SUPERPROD GROUP will give both companies the opportunity to flourish
within a group capable of meeting new market challenges while preserving its Luxembourg
identity. A relationship of trust with Clément and Jérémie, built up over many years, gives us
the prospect of a solid and pleasant collaboration that will, I’m sure, give both entities new
letters of nobility.”
Clément Calvet and Jérémie Fajner declare “We are very proud of the trust Stephan Roelants
has placed in us by handing over to us the studio and the company he has grown as an
essential partner for the most prestigious animated films produced in Europe. We’ve known

Stephan and the talented teams at STUDIO 352 for many years, notably through our co-
production of the film Song Of the Sea, which took us together to the Oscars, Césars and

European Film Awards. We would also like to pay tribute to Stephan’s talent and
determination, and the reputation of the companies he has developed and placed at the
pinnacle of the industry.”
