Sydney-based Pop Family Entertainment, global kids’ and family entertainment major Toonz Media Group and Irish production studio Telegael are building on their longtime collaborative relationship to launch a three-way co-production of a new animated theatrical feature, Arvee Chronicles.
Directed by Australian CGI creator Ian Brown (Fellowship of the Ring, Moulin Rouge, Alien TV; director of Emmy-winning and seven times Emmy-nominated Beat Bugs), Arvee Chronicles is set in a future world where AI and humans co-exist and where young Tye Devany and the mighty Arvee form a bond to save their universe.
The CG-animated project will be produced utilizing Pop Family’s bespoke pipeline, Popcorn, which has been developed in partnership with AWS’ cloud-based production platform, Nimble.
“Arvee Chronicles is a multi-layered, graphic, sci-fi adventure that explores a deeply emotional relationship between humans and sentient machines,” explained producer Carmel Travers, CEO of Pop Family. “This is a not-so-incredible space where fiction and real science intersect.”
Inspired by the graphic novels of Paul Western-Pittard, the project will take advantage of Australia and India’s recently signed Co-Production Treaty and the long-standing Treaty between Australia and Ireland.
“We are thrilled to continue the group’s longstanding relationship with Carmel and Pop Family. This highly commercial sci-fi adventure movie will be sure to mesmerize audiences around the world,” commented Ariel Veneziano, Toonz Media Group’s recently appointed Feature Film Division President.
Arvee Chronicles executive producers are Travers, Paul Cummins (CEO of Telegael), P. Jayakumar (CEO of Toonz Media Group), Gerry Travers, Peter Cambell, Caroline Cambell, Anthony J. Lyons and Antony I. Ginnane, President of FG Film Productions Australia. Travers and Ginnane are producing.
Pop Family Entertainment and Telegael are currently co-producing the CGI animated family feature film, Being Betty Flood, based on the bestselling The Floods novels and starring Evanna Lynch, Miranda Otto, Richard Roxburgh, Ardal O’Hanlan, Ed Byrne and Charlotte Friels.
