Set up in 2002 by Ruth Fielding and Camilla Deakin, Lupus Films specialises in animation, drama and entertainment shows for children. One highlight from the last year for the company was seeing The Pinky & Perky Show launch on CBBC to record ratings in November last year. 2008 also saw the company launch the animation website with Channel 4 and Aardman. “However one low was Channel 4 commissioning editor of arts and performance Jan Younghusband’s leaving Channel 4 at the end of July and so the animation schemes we look after on behalf of Channel 4 have ceased to exist,” says joint md Ruth Fielding. The company is starting production with new pre-school animated series The Hive for GMTV in the UK.
“Our plan is to make strategic alliances with other companies who have complementary skills and aims to us. For example Picture Production Company, who we’re working on The Hive with, have facilities and a licensing and merchandising division which compliments Lupus’ expertise in production,” says Fielding.
