Luo Bao Bei is our exciting new 52 x 11 series for 5-8 year olds. The series centres on spirited, fun-loving 7 year old Luo Bao Bei as she explores everyday life with her friends, family and animal companions, having adventures and learning that even though we seem different on the outside, the emotions we all feel make us fundamentally the same.
Starting life as a popular cartoon spokesperson and community icon in Beijing, this show is created by Grace Tian. Majority funded by Magic Mall, it’s their first production outside of China and we’re very excited for the meaningful cultural exchange that our collaboration with talent in Beijing will bring as we develop and produce Luo Bao Bei as an animated series.
With funding support from the Welsh Government and UK Animation tax breaks, we’re very pleased to be providing many new jobs in Cardiff and contributing to the creative industries in such a significant and exciting way.
Production on Luo Bao Bei is now underway, with the series writers led by award-winning Head Writer David Ingham, and the storyboarding, rigging, layout, animation and post-production all happening here in the Cloth Cat studio. Blending Chinese heritage with a dash of British humour and charm, our terrific multi-talented team is working hard to bring this vision to life, ready for broadcast in 2017.
