Marathon man to Iceland toonster

Bremond has produced more than 2,000 television programs

STOCKHOLM — Olivier Bremond, co-founder of major European TV production company Marathon Intl., has joined the board of directors of Icelandic production outfit CAOZ Animation.

Bremond sold his majority share in Marathon to Bridgepoint earlier in the year and settled in Reykjavik with his family.

He has produced more than 2,000 television programs, including “St. Tropez,” the longest-running TV series in Europe, and hundreds of documentaries.

Marathon has been a world leader in production of animated TV series with titles including “Totally Spies.”

Reykjavik-based CAOZ was founded in 2001 and produces 3-D animated films, TV series and commercials.

In 2002, the company produced festival and DVD hit “The Lost Little Caterpillar,” helmed by Gunnar Karlsson. It will release Karlsson’s new animated film, “Anna and the Moods,” early next year.
