Ja Film is lining up production of the series MONSTER LOVING MANIACS
co-produced with Ginger Pictures (BE), Belvision (BE) and Submarine Animation (NL) and distributed by Toon2Tango.
Three kids, raised by wildlife specialist parents, are sent to live with their grandfather. They soon realize that Grandpa Arthur, is a genuine Monster Hunter, who has spent a lifetime battling the supernatural. But the old man is clearly not as able as he used to be. And though he won’t admit it, new blood is sorely needed. To fulfill the family legacy, our kids embark on a journey of training and discovery, to become the next generation of Monster Hunters. Except these kids don’t want to hunt the monsters. They want to save them.
MONSTER LOVING MANIACS (52*11 minutes) is written/directed by Rune Christensen, and written/produced by Anders Berthelsen. The series was selected for Creative Europe’s slate funding 2019 and Cartoon Forum’s pitching sessions the same year. Since then the series has been pre-sold to broadcasters in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Lithuania, Spain, Portugal and Latin America.
The actual animation work will take place in Denmark and Belgium.
