Pukeko Signs Co-Pro Deal for Kiddets


Pukeko Pictures has recently inked a co-production deal with Chinese entertainment outfit Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company, under which the two companies would develop the sister series to Pukeko’s animated series The WotWots.

The new series will be titled Kiddets, and will be produced under the treaty guidelines signed by New Zealand and China last year, which is intended to encourage the forging of closer ties between businesses from the two countries. The treaty will give companies from either country access to funding and incentives afforded to national films in each country.

“We are very excited to be going on this journey with our colleagues from China,” said Martin Baynton, creator of The WotWots and the creative lead at Pukeko Pictures. “The WotWots has sold to over a hundred countries including many Asian territories. With that proven universal appeal it’s time to grow and expand the franchise with a sister series that has an eye on the growing Chinese market.”

Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company CEO and Executive Producer, Mr. Wang Bing, announced that the company will be building a new animation pipeline to undertake the animation elements of Kiddets. “We are very thrilled that Martin and Richard Taylor will be in charge of producing all the creative elements of scripts and design in Wellington and our team will handle the animation in Beijing. This is a very exciting opportunity for our company.”

“We are very excited to be working with Pukeko Pictures,” added Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company’s Managing Director of licensing and distribution, Mr. Wen Jianfeng. “In the last year we have successfully introduced the BBC show Waybuloo to little children all over China with a big launch last April which Clive and Martin attended with us. We want to make Kiddets loved by millions of children in China.”
