Atomic Cartoons has recently announced a new joint venture agreement that they have signed with Kelowna-based studio Yeti Farm Creative. The deal will last for three years and is estimated to be worth up to three million dollars in production value. The deal will allow Atomic Cartoons to expand their TV animation production capabilities into Kelowna, British Columbia.
Yeti Farm will help in the production of two Atomic Cartoons properties, such as the award-winning animated comedy series Rocket Monkeys, which is currently flying high on Teletoon in Canada and the US via Nickelodeon. Yeti Farm will also help in the production of Pirate Express, starting in February. The show will be targeted towards kids aged 7 to 11 and is scheduled for broadcast on Canada’s Teletoon in 2014, followed by Nine Network in Australia in 2015.
“We’re very pleased to be able to springboard from our long time success in the Vancouver marketplace and to expand production into Kelowna, a growing and vibrant animation market within BC,” says Rob Simmons, partner, Atomic Cartoons. “Kelowna offers a natural extension to our work, and a supportive business and lifestyle environment. Having committed and experienced partners in Yeti Farm Creative is a great approach to the Okanagan for Atomic.”
