It’s been a great year for Blue-Zoo. Director Oli Hyatt fronted the successful lobbying campaign that persuaded the government to launch a new tax credit for animation productions. And while the animation sector in general has had a difficult year, Blue Zoo seems to have bucked the trend, making a raft of kids shows including Get Squiggling, Alphablocks, Tree Fu Tom and Olive the Ostrich. The prospects look good too, say Hyatt and finance director Daniel Isman, because of the new tax incentives. “Because we are more competitive on price, we expect to work a lot more on international projects.” Blue Zoo also works across commercials and corporate production, and starts developing its first films this year.
