The Spanish animated series, produced by Alma Ata International Pictures, and recently acquired by the public Spanish television TVE, will be presented in the prestigious international fair.
The superhero kids school is preparing for the next year. HERO KIDS will take part, into Cartoon Forum´s 16th edition, the most important and prestigious animation fair in Europe, that will be held in the city of Kolding (Denmark) between the 21st and 24th of September 2005.
The first season of Hero Kids, has been recently acquired by TVE Television Española, and it consists in 26 chapters of 26 minutes each. The action spots on the young students of a superhero school, directed by the mindless Director Kirby and the strict Miss Tesmeiker.
Victor Gomez, Co-Director of the series states that “Igloo, Bunsen and Breeze are the outstanding students of HK, and also the main characters of the series, surrounded by a good number of class mates, teachers, and of course, villains: the most important of them is Doctor Fusion, the great hidden threat under Mastodompolis, city where the action takes part”.
“From a funny and demystifying point of view, HK –says Co-Director Julian M. Clemente- treats friendship, comradeship, self improvement, or the endless fight between good and evil, with unique looks, that will amaze kids between 7 and 12, but will also catch the teens, and adults attention”.
HK is produced by Alma Ata International Pictures and has obtained interest of many other production companies and local and foreign broadcasters. The premiere will take place at the 2005 Cartoon Forum in Kolding, from 21st to 24th of September.
Rafael Valentin-Pastrana, Executive Producer of the series explains that “Alma Ata hopes to start with the full production this Autumn, once the necessary agreements for the complete financing are closed. In that sense, the Cartoon Forum’s selection has been providential for the series”.
