The ANIMATED products will bring to life the adventures and feats of our liberator hero for the youngest audiences. These products will be focused on a TV Show content line and they will be produced under the highest standards of the international markets.
The ANIMATED TV SHOW will begin when 10-year-old Azuk is protected by his Master, Salomao Ginjiva, and taken to the Ancestral Shamans. Even though he is not the chosen one for humankind’s redemption, Azuk has the gen of the chosen one running through his blood and he will start a journey through the Lands of the New World to train himself and become the hero he was always meant to be.
The ANIMATED SHOW is initially developed for one season with 8 episodes each and a 22-minute length for every episode. (Format 8X22’X1). This contemporary format is currently used for most international digital streamers and it will ease the adaptation of the content from editorial platforms into the animated formats.
The sketch techniques will respond to the American-Manga style. This style merges the American and Japanese styles to create an international look throughout the whole show.
