Soumache says, “The kids‘ animation market has gone through tremendous changes over the past years. Kids watch more and more high-quality programmes while overall quality of the programmes is increasing. Mipcom is a must-be place for the animation market and for Method Animation. It is the perfect place to feel new trends, the shape of the market and the financing opportunities.”


Also on 3 October, Sesame’s Street’s Bert and Ernie are inviting MipJunior’s attendees to a special presentation of ARD/NDR’s Sesamstrasse’s Carrot for Two, co-produced with Sesame Workshop.


Mipcom director Laurine Garaude says, “The kids’ entertainment sector is extremely dynamic. The number of animation exhibitors at Mipcom has risen 12 per cent in five years and we will welcome over 680 exhibiting companies this year, new sponsors and key newcomers. We are thrilled to see so many animation and kids’ programming companies attending Mipcom and MipJunior this year.”

12 Korean kids’ entertainment companies, including Roi Visual and SAMG Animation, will be present at MipJunior.

Skechers Entertainment senior VP creative development Kristen Van Cott will lead the Case Study conference Creating a Family Brand held on 2 October. Van Cott says, “For a producer to be able to grab the attention of today‘s kid viewers, content needs to tell a good story, offer compelling graphics and be interactive. The programming at Mipcom is remarkably diverse, yet the most successful shows all share those qualities. This market is essential to Skechers Entertainment as we introduce our branded content to the world.”
