Lead by Marina Narishkin, General Manager of Millimages, the Licensing and Merchandising department of the 31-year-old production studio is mainly focused on the iconic "Molang". The year 2022 is already a success for "Molang", with Licensing agencies from around the world wanting to represent the lifestyle brand, popular amongst preteens, Gen Z and young parents alike!. “Brand building is all about creating alliances, as they can truly make or break a brand”, says Marina Narishkin. “We are very proud of our agent infrastructure, and the new members of our extended Molang family are proud to join us as well”.
