UK Creativity – Talent-driven and World Beating

Why is the UK attracting children’s companies and investment from overseas and what does it mean for the UK industry and talent?

As overseas companies set up operations and studios in the UK to develop IP and expand local co-production opportunities, at the same time as international businesses invest in UK indies, CMC explores why and why now? We will look at the UK’s reputation in animation, IP development, scriptwriting and creative content, and the opportunities and challenges presented when working in the UK.

While we celebrate UK creative drive and animation expertise, and what attracts international partners to the UK, we also consider whether UK systems of incentives and support adequately bolster the UK animation sector.
