Last night the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television honoured the best of the best in Canadian Kids media at the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards - Children’s and Animation Program.
We are thrilled to share that composers Ari Posner, Amin Bhatia and Kris Kuzdak took home the award for Best Original Music, Animation for their work on Let's Go Luna! - “The Way of the Gaucho.”
Let’s Go Luna! follows the adventures of three animal friends – Leo, a wombat from Australia; Carmen, a butterfly from Mexico; and Andy, a frog from the United States – as they travel the globe with their parents’ traveling performance troupe, “Circo Fabuloso”. At each stop, Luna the Moon guides the trio as they learn about the local region, its people and traditions that make each place unique. Along their travels, the characters learn of a traditional folktale associated with each new location. From language and music, to food and art – each episode ends with a reminder that there’s always more to see, learn and experience with each place you visit.
Let’s Go Luna is produced by 9 Story Media Group and animated here at Brown Bag Films in our Toronto studio. The series encourages kids ages 4-7 to explore and appreciate world cultures while developing social skills. In Canada, Let’s Go Luna airs on TVOKids and Knowledge Kids.
We would also like to extend a HUGE congratulations to our parent company 9 Story Media Group’s CEO Vince Commisso! Vince was presented with his Academy Board of Directors’ Tribute Award in recognition of his extraordinary impact on the growth of the Canadian media industry, at last night’s ceremony.
Finally, a shout out to all the 2022 CSA honorees and one more standing ovation for the Let’s Go Luna composer team, we are absolutely over the moon about the news of your win! And to all our nominated productions this year, we couldn’t be prouder of the work you created!
