me!Humanity to Get an Animated Adaptation
The design property me!Humanity, which has become a phenomenon in Uruguay, is hoping to expand its presence overseas as they have recently tapped Canadian writer Aron Dunn. The writer is known for his work in Camp Lakebottom and The Travels of Young Marco Polo, and under the deal with me!Humanity, will be developing an animated adaptation of the property.
For the uninitiated, me!Humanity is a brand that reflects a wide range of personalities, moods, professions, and quirks via a number of colorful characters that embody positive messages such as “Difficult Roads Often Lead to Beautiful Destinations,” “Strength Lies in Differences” and “Inhale the Future, Exhale the Past.”
Dunn and me!Humanity were brought together by the consulting and licensing group The ThinkTank Emporium.
“I am thrilled to be working with Agustina Roig and their team to bring me!Humanity to a new audience via the creation of animated content that will be shown on platforms globally,” said Dunn. “I look forward to presenting me!Humanity at the upcoming markets and to the media communities at large.”
“I am delighted to be embarking on a new chapter in the development of me!Humanity by working with Aron. I’m convinced my brand has a very wide appeal. It easily adapts across all borders and languages,” said Sebastian Cubas.
