About the animation business:
The prime cost of producing one minute of high-quality animation in Russia is only $ 10,000 – 100,000, depending on the type of animation. This means the full cycle: buying rights, pre-production and production. This is several times cheaper than the production of cartoons in any other country in the world. And at the same time we get high quality cartoons.
Russian cartoons are confidently winning the hearts of viewers all over the world, so 50% of Russian cartoons are bought by foreign content buyers. And animation is the main export component of the domestic content industry.
Unlike other types of content, animation can generate several types of income. The most important of them are: 1) Hire in cinema networks, Internet cinemas and on TV provides 30-50% of receipts. 2) Sale of licenses to use characters to stimulate sales and services – 50-80% of proceeds. From open sources, you can find out that some cartoons bring billions of dollars to their creators.
In addition, in the process of creating a cartoon, we create a universe that can be easily used to create a computer game, which can also become an additional major source of income.
Animation companies in Russia can receive government support for the production and promotion of cartoons up to 100% of the budget.
What we want and offer:
The production budget for the first season is $ 3.2 million (16 episodes X $ 200,000 per episode). We invite an investor who can partially or fully finance the production of an animated series at the initial stage of the project. We have a chance to get government support. Foreign companies are showing interest in the series, which can also invest in the project, so partial funding is possible.
We offer the investor a share of the profits generated from the rental, sale of the series and the sale of the rights to use the characters’ imagery. We are ready to discuss all the conditions.
And also we can sell the rights to produce this series in any territory. If necessary, we will provide creative support or creative control.
In addition, we have another film and animation projects for which we are looking for investors and sponsors. We are ready to discuss cooperation options.
