AngeleFine sees the ‘Lights’

Coming-of-age toonpic written by Bisch, Spraggins

ANNECY

U.S. screenwriters Kevin Bisch (“Hitch,” “Avon Man”) and Justin Spraggins have delivered a screenplay for “Lights,” an animated family laffer set up as a French-U.S. co-production by Paris-based AngeleFine Prods. and its L.A. arm, Fine Prods.

“Lights” turns on Ray, a young light bulb who escapes his factory, takes to the road, finds love and believes all the time his destiny is to light up the world. That illusion suffers severe reality checks, but he finally finds his place in the world, Spraggins said.

AngeleFine is a production-animation-post-production company set up by Pierre Buffin of BUF, France’s leading vfx specialist, and producer India Osborne (“From Paris With Love,” “Taken”).

Per Osborne, “Lights” will probably be made in CGI and is budgeted in the low-to-mid double-digit million dollar range, depending on talent.

BUF, which supplied visual effects on “Thor” and Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows,” is opening facilities in Canada and Belgium and Osborne aims to bring in Canadian or Belgian co-production partners on “Lights,” tapping into the countries’ tax breaks. BUF will be animation vendor.

Osborne, Bisch and Spraggins presented “Lights” to distribs at Gaul’s Annecy Animation Film Festival on Thursday.

Bisch is repped by WME’s Adriana Alberghetti. CAA’s John Levin is helping package “Lights.”

Attorney for Spraggins, a writer-producer who founded Spotdock, a mobile device social media company, is Alex Kohner at Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein & Kohner.
