Innovation Voucher

Supported by European Structural Investment Funding (ESIF)

Project: Founded by AUB graduate David Blanche Small Fry Animation are a boutique studio that pride themselves on their creative design and storytelling.

Since 2016 they have quickly built a portfolio of commissioned work for documentaries and campaigns but they want to develop their own IP.

Toco Toco is a fully animated, 2Dseries aimed at children aged 3 onwards.

This project supported the initial development creating scripts, concept art, promotional materials, animation tests and a pitch document. It also helped develop a production pipeline.

David Blanche says: “Through creating this package, we have secured connections with organisations such as CBeebies, Milkshake, France Televisions and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, amongst others, who are interested in working with Small Fry to develop the project further and acquire it for broadcast.

We have also initiated discussions relating to co-production and further financing of the project with production houses in order to access other international markets, tax credits and budget support.”
