EXCLUSIVE: UTA has signed French production house Superprod, producer of current Best Animated Feature Oscar nominee Song Of The Sea, for representation in television and film. Founded in 2010 by former Gaumont Alphanim execs Clément Calvet and Jérémie Fajner, the company is currently developing the 2D animated feature film Miles, by book illustrator Rebecca Dautremer, and is in production on 3D animated feature White Fang, based on Jack London’s classic novel and set to be directed by Philippe Lioret and Alexander Espigares. The latter co-directed 2013’s Oscar-winning animated short, Mr Hublot.
Superprod recently financed live-action feature Jailbird, as well as Cafard, an animated adult movie. Both projects are slated to be released this fall. The company’s credits also include animated series Lassie, Kika & Bob 2 and The New Adventures Of Geronimo Stilton. In 2013, Superprod produced the live-action feature Dead Man Talking, which earned a Cesar nomination as well as several Belgian Magritte Academy Awards.
