Annecy: Canada’s Tangent Teams With Arcadia, Araña and Pachacamac On ‘Ozzy’ EXCLUSIVE

3D animated feature project, sold by Dreamcatchers, also backed by conglom Atresmedia and Disney Channel

Canadian toon house Tangent Animation is joining forces with Spain’s Arcadia Motion Pictures, Capitan Araña and Pachacamac to co-produce 3D animated feature “Run Ozzy Run.”

Atresmedia, the DeAPlaneta-controlled Spanish media conglom, and Disney Channel are also on board, taking Spanish broadcasting TV rights on the film.

Madrid-based sales, financing and production combo Dreamcatchers handles “Run Ozzy Run” worldwide rights. Dreamcathers’ Marina Fuentes presented “Run Ozzy Run” on Wednesday at a Annecy MIFA market Focus on Spain showcase of top animation projects.

The 3D pic tells the story of Ozzy, a lovable family pet, placed in a luxury kennel while his family heads on to a once in a lifetime trip to Japan. Unbeknownst to the family and Ozzy, the kennel is a front of an evil toy sweatshop empire, producers of the very toys Ozzy plays with at home.

Ozzy is forced to work at the sweatshop and has to gather the courage and belief in himself to attempt to escape.

Penned by Juan Ramon Ruiz de Somavia and directed by Alberto Rodriguez, “Run Ozzy Run” suggests a fun and fresh twist on the classic prison break movie, where Ozzy will work with his new-found friends and use his unique speed to devise a complicated and hilarious escape plan.

Slated for release by next year’s second quarter, “Ozzy’s” design and concept work has already begun in Spain.

“Working with such a great team of professionals is amazing. Spain has an incredible pool of animation talent and together with Canada we believe this film will be a success: It’s a reasonable $10 million budget, a fun script and great fun for the whole family,” said Fuentes.

“We are excited to be working on this fantastic show that will likely spin into additional Ozzy adventures,” added Tangent Animation’s Jeff Bell.

Tangent Animation is a subsid company of Manitoba-based outfit Buffalo Gal Pictures, a regular partner on international co-productions with Spain, including Claudia Llosa’s Berlin festival 2014 competition player “Aloft,” co-produced with Arcadia, a film that Dreamcatchers sold to Sony Pictures Classics.

Launched 2012, Dreamcatchers is an Spanish umbrella created by Ibon Cormenzana’s Barcelona-based Arcadia Motion Pictures, producer-distributor Jose Maria Morales’ Wanda Films and sales agent Marina Fuentes to produce, finance and sell each year three-to-five English-language films by compelling helmers with A-list cast.
