GFM Animation @ The Children’s Media Conference

Published: 21st May 2019

We’re delighted to be attending the Children’s Media Conference in Sheffield this week (2-4 July).  GFM Animation’s Head of Production, Sean Feeney, and Head of Marketing, Amanda Kerridge, will be there discussing opportunities across our full animation slate.

GFM Animation currently has a varied, strong production slate with an aggregate budget of $200m+ and a plan to deliver 3-4 features per year.  Recently released films include Duck Duck Goose featuring the voices of Zendaya, Jim Gaffigan, Carl Reiner and Stephen Fry, and Here Comes The Grump featuring the voices of Ian McShane, Toby Kebbell and Lily Collins.

Forthcoming films on the slate include: Blazing Samurai featuring the voices of Michael Cera, Samuel L Jackson and Ricky Gervais, Another Bloomin’ Christmas based on the much loved Raymond Briggs character, and 10 Lives which is currently in production headed by Ash Brannon (Surf’s Up, Toy Story 2) and producer Penney Finkelman Cox (Shrek, The Prince of Egypt).  Additionally we are heading into the pre-school series space with an exciting new collaboration based on a best-selling series of books.

If you’re attending CMC this year, please do come & say ‘hi’!
