Technicolor to Unveil New Chamelia Series
Technicolor and Mercury Filmworks have recently partnered in order to develop a new 2D animated preschool series titled Chamelia, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Cartoon Forum on September 17 to 20 and the MIPCOM Jr on October 5 to 10.
Chamelia is based on the children’s book series from acclaimed author Ethan Long (winner of the 2013 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award) and stars the titular chameleon who is remarkably unchameleon-like in her desire to stand out rather than blend in.
Chamelia is set in the town of Camouflage and celebrates the joys of being unique, encouraging children to celebrate their individuality as they experience familiar childhood situations at school, at the playground, at the park, and even at home.
“Our collaboration with Mercury Filmworks on the development and production of Atomic Puppet was such a rewarding partnership, we were eager to work with them on Chamelia. Both companies share a commitment to developing distinct properties that capture the imagination, push the creative envelope, and engage audiences. Chamelia is a property that delivers on all fronts,” says Technicolor VP of Animation Steven Wendland.
“Technicolor is a brilliant partner with great creative instincts,” added Mercury Filmworks President Clint Eland. “They are a global company with diverse expertise that complements our own. We couldn’t be happier about re-teaming with them to develop Chamelia. Add the talents of John Lomas-Bullivant, and I think we have a wonderful recipe for success.”
