Eye Present to co-produce Tomi Ungerer's Flix Print E-mail

FlixIceCream

Eye Present have just entered a development agreement with Pictor Productions to co-produce brand new animated content based on Tomi Ungerer's book Flix, which is about a young pug dog who has been raised by cat parents in Cat Town. The animations will be created by Eye Present, which was formed by Genevieve Dexter and Squint/Opera and is part of our London studio. 

Tomi Ungerer commented: “Flix is about making the best of your differences—we are all equal and we are all different. Everyone has something to offer. Flix shows us that with comedy you can overcome any dogstacle.”

Aria Ungerer noted: “Looking through all of Tomi’s work, Flix is the book we all identified as having the most potential. The premise provides endless humour and inventiveness for this little dog living in the world of cats and of course contains allegories that touch every kid.”

Jules Coke, CEO at Squint/Opera and producer at Eye Present, added: “We are working directly with Tomi and Aria in the development of Flix, and taking early development materials to the Animation Production Day in Stuttgart and MIFA in Annecy this year to get market feedback and to find the right format and target for this title, we are currently working on Flix as a character and some story lines. His world is already very clear.”
