Tiny Island Productions puts Singapore Animation Dreams on the world map
SINGAPORE, 20th FEB 2014 - The dreams started out as little things - to see the stories in their heads come alive, to live each day doing the things they love. These little things grew to become a quest to create something the production studio could be proud to call its own, and a quest to build an international reputation for the work that Singapore artists could produce. The successful launch of the 'Dream Defenders' series is a result of that quest, and is a showcase of the Singapore studio's production capabilities, from conceptualization to production.
Created and produced by Singapore's Tiny Island Productions, Dream Defenders is the first 3D stereoscopic animated series produced in Singapore and has garnered the Asia Image Apollo Awards 2013 for Best 3D Animation. The series is distributed by Dreamworks Classic and has been sold worldwide including the US, Europe (Central and Eastern Europe), Middle East, North Africa and Asia in both traditional and stereoscopic format. Airtime for the show has already commenced in the US on the 3Net (a joint venture of Sony Corporation, Discovery Communications, IMAX Corporation) and Hulu channels; in Korea on DaeKyo Kids TV, soon on Super RTL Germany and more scheduled international roll-outs within the year.
“It’s not just a TV show, not just “Inception” for kids. It’s also family entertainment with strong family values. It’s also about two kids who fight like all siblings do but when it comes to a crisis, they realise how important family is to them and how their busy parents really do care and worry about them which they find out when they enter into their parents’ dream worlds,” elaborates David Kwok, CEO of Tiny Island Productions.
On February 24th, MediaCorp channel, okto, in conjunction with Toggle, will launch kids into the fantastic world of Dream Defenders, an animated television series about the adventures of a pair of nightmare-fighting siblings who protect our world from the threat of Icela, evil queen of the Dreamworlds.
Through an interactive Augmented Reality event, viewers will have a chance to enter into the realm of the Dreamworlds and help the heroes of the series battle evil 'momoks' at Changi City Point from 14 - 16 March 2014. This augmented reality experience is jointly organized by Tiny Island Productions and okto.
