Technicolor Acquires France’s Ouido Productions
Technicolor has recently announced their acquisition of the French indie animation outfit OuiDo Productions. The new acquisition will help boost Technicolor’s already impressive technology and production strengths, particularly with regard to licensing and development expertise and help cement the company’s reputation as one of the leading animation production partners in the world.
“OuiDo has done an incredible job in leveraging the rights to major global media brands,” said Tim Sarnoff, President of Technicolor Production Services. “We look at this acquisition as a complement to Technicolor’s growth strategy within the animation industry and the French market. We will now be better positioned to develop, finance, produce and service the full range of needs of content creators, licensors and distributors around the globe.”
