Brand Licensing for Animation

Why Brand Licensing?

With animation properties offering a more evergreen, unique proposition vs the larger movie franchises, it's no surprise that more and more licensees and retailers are turning to animation to extend their product ranges.

The industry is worth $280bn and is breaking records every year with Masha and the Bear holding a new Guiness World Record as the most watched animated movie on Youtube with over three billion hits. Brand Licensing enables both independent and large animation houses to grow their audiences as well as generate new revenue streams as they capitalise on an eager fan base.
