The film Arctic Dogs, for which Iervolino Entertainment owns the intellectual property rights of the characters for the production of spin-offs, received the Best Animation award at the 24th edition of Cartoons on the Bay, the cross-media animation and children’s TV festival promoted by Rai and organised by Rai Com.
From the animated film Arctic Dogs, one of the most watched titles on Netflix US this year, Iervolino Entertainment created the spin-off Puffins, a series that in recent weeks has climbed the rankings of Apple TV Italia conquering the first place, and Arctic Friends, in first place on Apple TV during the first week of programming.
Andrea Iervolino, President and Founder of Iervolino Entertainment, noted: “The award from Cartoons on the Bay and the successes of Arctic Dogs once again confirm that Iervolino Entertainment’s investment in IP is a winning strategy and that the quality of our animation is the best on the market. The ownership of a significant IP portfolio is an integral part of our growth strategy and is representative of our commitment to collaborate with international players to make quality films”.
The IPs of the Arctic Dogs characters for the production of short content were acquired by Iervolino Entertainment in recent years under various agreements with the companies Short Art Media LLC and Arctic Justice Movie Limited, and include merchandising rights, commercial rights, soundtrack and paper publishing rights.
The production of short-content, mainly aimed at streaming and mobile, is a line of business on which Iervolino Entertainment is focusing significant resources.
