This case study will give you the keys to a successful international animation co-production.

While everyone would probably prefer to produce their animated series in one place and save all the long distance calls and risks of cultural disconnect, with individual broadcaster budgets usually unable to cover production costs, international co-production is a fact of life.
However, the news is not all bad because, configured right, animation co-production can end up being "the best of all worlds" as each partner brings what their territory does best to the table.

In this case study, the production and commissioning teams behind the forthcoming Disney/Teletoon series "Counterfeit Cat" discuss how they matched the demands of the artist with the requirements of the various production ecosystems for the creative good of the show.

They'll also talk about how each country can learn from the other in terms of spreading best practices in all disciplines more evenly.
