TeamTo has acquired the TV, film and licensing rights to three popular children’s books: Snowman (“Snowy and the Snowman”), by  Jacques Duquennoy,  published by Editions de la Gouttière; Fox’s Garden (“The Winter I Met the Fox”), by Camille Garoche, published by Editions Soleil; and Jean Gouronas’ “Something’s Fishy” published by Phaidon Books (Penguin’s Ice Time).

The three winter-themed stories will be produced as individual specials for the 2022/2023 holiday season, suitable for both at-home TV or platform viewing, as well as cinema screening.

“We wanted to create an enchanting winter-themed program for preschoolers, designed for both TV and matinee theatre screenings,” Corrine Kouper, executive producer and co-founder, TeamTo. “The three stories, which are all quite different from each other, aim to bring wonder and excitement to a young audience, making it a unique experience for children, especially those who may never have been to the movies before.  Since we produce animation of cinematic quality, this is a natural extension of how we share our shows with a wider audience in different formats.”

TeamTo will be presenting “Winter is Here!” at this year’s Kidscreen, Cartoon Movie and Annecy.

“It has been exciting to develop short-form content because, as with short stories, you can really get to know a character in a very unique and often powerful way,” says Mary Bredin, creative development, TeamTo. “Also, working on short films provides a rare opportunity, in our busy production world, to focus on the heart of a story, and work closely with new directorial talent to bring their vision to life. It has been a great collaborative process.”
