It's almost that most wonderful time of the year… and my, hasn't it flown by so fast!
It certainly has been a truly AMAZING year for us, with some emotional milestones like our Manchester studio celebrating its 2nd anniversary; Kidscreen awards for Doc McStuffins and Peg + Cat; a total of TEN more Emmy nominations for our productions; new season launches for Wild Kratts and The Stinky & Dirty Show; new season greenlights for Daniel Tiger's Neighbourhood and Nella the Princess Knight; launches of a whole slew of new productions: 3 Amigonauts, Nella the Princess Knight, Magic School Bus Rides Again, Top Wing and Vampirina who premiered to over 28 MILLION viewers (thanks for watching folks and for partaking in the Spinechiller dance routine!), and three Annie Award nominations!
9 Story Media Group also rebranded their Toronto studio Brown Bag Films, making us one animation studio with three great locations.
You could say we've gotten a lot of our Christmas presents early… so we'd like to give a little something back with a little sneak peek at our Angela:
We hope you like it and we'd love to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support throughout the year and hope you continue to enjoy our work!
From all of us here at Brown Bag Films and all of the 9 Story Media Group family we want to wish you all Happy Holidays!
This year we have made donations to Save the Children for two important causes: Mexico Earthquake Children's Relief Fund and Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria Children's Relief Fund.
