HARI, animation developer, producer and distributor focused on creations dedicated to children and families around the world, has announced the appointment of Sophie “Kido” Prigent as head, sales. 

“We’re delighted that ‘Kido’ has joined us to lead the distribution strategy of our original productions,” says Josselin Charier, co-founder, HARI. “HARI is starting a new chapter and we’re lucky to benefit from her expertise and tremendous experience in the industry at such a key moment. We’re accelerating our production pace and we have a new slate of ambitious projects, TV series but also theatrical movies. ‘Kido’s’ international experience will be decisive to help us achieve our goals!” 

“As a content enthusiast, it’s close to my heart to work hand in hand with creatives, and I’m very happy to join a team completely dedicated to original productions,” says Prigent. “Known as masters of slapstick with ‘Grizzy and the Lemmings’ (fourth season is in production), the studio is now exploring the action-adventure-comedy genre with the upcoming ‘Mystery Lane’. I’m looking forward to representing this ‘new classic’ on the market this year! HARI also has a thrilling development slate, including, ‘The Weasy Family’, which just started production, and balances tenderness and cartoon humor. HARI’s talent for storytelling and their expertise in delivering impressive 3D animation serves their goal to develop IPs for the long haul and go beyond the small screen. I’m thrilled to join such a visionary team.”
