Newen Studios group subsidiary, The Blue Spirit group is amplifying its production activity with a new set of appointments, intended to succeed Armelle Glorennec. 

With the new additions, the company, credited with producing animated series and feature films and with a 2D/3D production studio since 2004, hopes to better fulfill existing production demand in the market. “The evolution and strengthening of Blue Spirit Productions reflects the creative and commercial ambitions that have driven the company since its creation," Olivier Lelardoux, Managing Director of Blue Spirit, said. "Sylvie, Justine and Jacques are passionate and talented producers. I have every confidence in their interpersonal and creative skills, as well as their expertise in developing and producing strong and innovative content for a wide audience. I would like to warmly thank Armelle for the incredible work she has done over the years at Blue Spirit and wish her all the best for her future projects.” 

Beginning her tenure in 2005, Glorennec served as co-director of the Blue Spirit group alongside Eric Jacquot, and the producer of Blue Spirit. She has produced all of the company’s emblematic projects, including the series "The Mysterious Cities of Gold," "Loopdidoo," "Alice & Lewis," "Arthur and the Children of the Round Table" and the feature films "My Life as a Zucchini," which won two Césars, and Jean-François Laguionie’s films "The Painting" and "The Prince's Voyage," co-directed with Xavier Picard. 

Sylvie Mahé was appointed Producer and Deputy Managing Director. In this capacity, she will oversee all activity and production teams for series and feature films. She succeeds Armelle Glorennec, who has accompanied her since September in this position. Sylvie Mahé began her broadcasting career by joining the audiovisual subsidiary of the Total Group as financial director of the
animation department, alongside Eric Jacquot. Since 2005, through her consulting firm, she has worked alongside animation producers on series and feature film projects, as well as on the corporate scope of their activities. In 2018 she joined Mondo TV France as General Manager and Director of Development.

Jacques Romeu also joined the Blue Spirit group, after more than 20 years in animation, including 10 years as Executive Producer in development on approximately 50 projects (Studio 100, Cyber Group Studios, Superprod), and is now appointed producer. His mission is to strengthen the production of series at Blue Spirit Productions by initiating new projects and by supporting series already in production or development, including Alice & Lewis (Season 2), Mille Bornes Challenge, The Borrowers, and
Nightmares are in Trouble. He will work alongside Caroline Oustlant, artistic producer.

“Blue Spirit Productions has been producing ambitious, high quality and distinctive projects for many years," Mahé said. "With the whole team, we will continue to pursue this editorial line and are committed to ensuring both current productions and future developments will uphold the same high standards and continue to delight our audiences, who remain at the heart of our ambitions."
