Features of animated production in Russia.
In order to get decent dividends, the investor must understand that investing in an animated series must be long-term.
Investing in Russian animation is much more profitable than producing animation in any other country. Because in Russia, with very low budgets, you can shoot films and animations of a very high level.
For example, the average production budget for one episode of The Simpsons animated series is $ 1.8 million. The average production budget for one episode of the Russian animated series is $ 0.2 million.
Nevertheless, Russian animation conquers the world. And at a cost 10 times lower than in Europe and America, Russian animation enjoys international success. Half of Russian cartoons are sent to the international market in more than 100 countries of the world. Russian animated series collect billions of views on online platforms and successfully go on television.
Russia is rich in talents capable of generating original ideas and creating interesting and unusual content. This gives great chances to receive worldwide recognition and great financial dividends.
TV channels and online platforms are experiencing an acute shortage of premium content. There are more online platforms and television channels than the amount of content produced annually. To reduce the lack of content, some television channels and online platforms have to create content themselves and collaborate with independent producers. Animation plays a special role in this area because very little animation is created. 20-30 times less than movies and TV shows. And we can earn satisfying the needs of the market for content.
Viewers usually watch a movie once. But viewers can watch the same cartoon many times, and children – endlessly. In addition, parents are interested in having their children watch good cartoons and provide parents with the opportunity to do their own thing. And in Russian animation there is usually a teaching component. Therefore, parents are interested in having children watch Russian cartoons. This creates a permanent and stable source of income for animation studios.
When a child sees, for example, a toy or a T-shirt or a drink depicting a favorite animated character, he pronounces the magic word “give”. Nothing is sorry for the children, and parents buy everything that their child wants. This creates revenue for animation studios and product manufacturers who buy licenses for using cartoon characters to promote their products.
Animation production “adapted to survival.” The quarantine did not affect the production process in any way, since the employees of the animation studio can work remotely. Moreover, according to press reports, it became known that the animators helped colleagues from the film industry who were unemployed during quarantine. Therefore, investment in animation is safe.
