Luque to head sales at Milimetros

Toon house slate includes 'Magic Cube,' 'Hemoglobin'

BARCELONA — Mar Luque, the former general co-ordinator of Spanish sales consortium Latido, has been appointed head of sales and co-productions at Spanish toon house Milimetros.

Madrid-based company, headed by CEO Antonio Zurera, provides pre-production and animation services on features, TV specials, TV pilots and series. Recent toon pics include “Asterix in Amerika,” “Jungledyret Hugo” and “Pippi Longstocking.”

Luque is currently focusing on international sales for “The Magic Cube” and “Hemoglobin.”

“‘Hemoglobin’ turns on a family of Andalusian vampires living in Ger-many who get a job offer to return to their roots in Spain,” Luque told Daily Variety. “During its trip to Spain, the family encounters a Martian who’s trying to save the world by destroying its great monuments and setting up theme parks.”

“Cube” is the sequel to toon pic hit “Dragon Hill,” which was sold to 27 countries. Helmed by Angel Izquierdo from Antonio Zurera’s screenplay, “Cube” is co-produced by Poland’s Polsat Group, Barton Films and Disney Channel Espana.

To be released theatrically next week in Spain, “Cube” has been picked up by Basque pubcaster ETB, Spanish nationwide pubcaster TVE, France’s TF1 for video and Cinecinema for satellite and pay-per-view, Germany’s Disney Channel and Super RTL, Italy’s Mediaset and Poland’s Dziki Film.

Future projects include an animation skein and feature co-production, both based on “Don Quixote,” with animal characters and new elements such as a psychiatrist for the Spanish wannabe knight.

“To grow, Spanish animation needs the same support that fiction feature enjoy in Spain from broadcasters. We’ve got extraordinarily creative production houses working at international standards, but they need more backing,” Luque said.
