Escapade Media has secured worldwide rights to the series "Bluenoses" (26x5’) developed by award-winning, Australia based writer/performer duo, Martin & Annie Chatterton and produced by Hungry Head Productions UK. The series showcases engaging poems by one of Britain's best-loved children's poets, Paul Cookson, along with ‘live’ animated drawings by globally successful illustrator, Martin.
Natalie Lawley states “Escapade is honoured to be working with this incredible talent and bringing 'Bluenoses' to children around the world. The tour has built a foundation of little fans across so many territories, it makes sense to grow the brand by introducing the series and building on this foundation.”
"Bluenoses" is a fun-packed animated series for creative young viewers who want to learn to draw, doodle and rhyme. Built around the double act of Cookie (he draws the words) and Big Ed (who writes the pictures), "Bluenoses" opens up a universe of inspiration and stimulation via fun poems, drawings, animation and music.
Produced by a team with world class educational experience and engagement, and with a belief in the educational power of combining word and image, each episode draws on Chatterton and Cookson’s long experience as in-demand performers at schools, colleges and festivals in the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, China, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Turkey, France, Spain, Germany, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Myanmar, Singapore, South Africa, Argentina and Ireland. In that time they have presented to over half a million children.
Richard Johnson, Hungry Head: “It’s really fantastic for us at Hungry Head to be working with Escapade on bringing ‘Bluenoses’ to as wide an audience as possible. They share our belief in delivering both quality and entertainment in children’s content.”
