Preparing the presentation of the project for the Kids Kino Industry, studio KAPI received valuable feedback from the experts about a design conception. After that, it has been made a decision to radically change the visual component of the series.
"Yes, our characters have changed a lot. The Cartoon Forum 2020 expert group, which has been advising us for the last few months, pushed us to this decision. We strive to enter the European animation market to make our country visible in it. So we think we have taken a step in the right direction. And we hope that the renewed heroes will be favorably met by both Ukrainian and European audiences", the producer of the studio KAPI Michael Margulis said.
Earlier the project of a series has been selected to the Cartoon Forum 2020 which took place on September 14-17 in Toulouse (France).
