In addition, PPM has signed with PVP Media from Canada and Capitán Araña and 3Doubles Producciones from Spain, to represent the world-wide distribution rights for the animated feature, "4 Days Before Christmas", which is set for a Spanish premiere in December 2023.
“I am very excited that we can all finally get back together in LA for this long-awaited AFM to return in full capacity” noted Tania Pinto Da Cunha, VP/Partner at Pink Parrot Media. “We are extremely happy to have two great projects, 'Scarygirl' and '4 Days Before Christmas', joining our PPM family. Both titles have a uniqueness about them and that is what we like and value in our team. Working with these outstanding and highly creative producers is an enriching journey for us and exemplifies our mission.”
“Really excited about working together with Pink Parrot Media in a superhero movie, including Santa Claus and his elves to save Christmas with Billie's help,” noted Dario Sanchez, producer of 4 Days Before Christmas.
With a voice cast headlined by Sam Neill ("Jurassic Park"), Jillian Nguyen ("Clickbait"), Rob Collins ("Cleverman") and Anna Torv (Fringe), "Scarygirl" follows Arkie (Nguyen), a young girl with a talent for technology and a tentacle-like arm, who was raised in secret by her kind but cautious father, Blister (Collins), a rare Giant Octopus with the ability to regenerate life. The film is a co-pro between Aussie studios Highly Spirited and Like a Photon Creative, with financial support from Screen Queensland.
With Harland Williams ("Puppy Dog Pals") Colm Feore ("The Umbrella Academy") and Millie Davis ("Odd Squad") set as voice cast," 4 Days Before Christmas" (1x88 min.) is currently in production and tells a story of when Santa hits his head and thinks he’s Superklaus, a popular big screen superhero, he gets scammed by a toy-obsessed businessman who wants to take over his workshop. The animated film is directed by Steven Majaury, with Miguel Miranda co-directing.
