LIL CRITTER WORKSHOP LAUNCHES IN UK

Based in Bristol, LCW’s new studio will focus on developing the company’s intellectual property, working with creative talent, studios and co-production partners in the UK and across Europe.

Led by LCW co-founder and executive producer Walid Omar, the studio will seek to recruit both senior development and creative staff, as well as work with freelance writers and intellectual property owners to work in collaboration with its team based in Malaysia.

Acclaimed Malaysian Animation House Lil Critter Workshop (LCW) expands its global footprint by establishing an animation studio in the UK. Based in Bristol, LCW’s new studio will focus on developing the company’s intellectual property, working with creative talent, studios and co-production partners in the UK and across Europe.

Led by LCW co-founder and executive producer Walid Omar, the studio will seek to recruit both senior development and creative staff, as well as work with freelance writers and intellectual property owners to work in collaboration with its team based in Malaysia.

says Walid Omar “The UK is the natural home for our extended business. Not only did I grow up there and spend much of my formative career there, but the UK has a vast array of creative talent that we want to work with to build our original IP roster. We also want to collaborate with other UK studios as a production partner. We hope that our fusion of talent and ideas combined with British voices will allow us to create and tell stories that are full of energy, bold and fun.

LCW shows, including Hogie the Globehopper and Buck & Buddy have sold to major global broadcasters and platforms including Netflix, CITV, Cartoon Network and Discovery Kids. The company also has a roster of dynamic projects in development that include comedies, anime, and high-energy adventures. LCW’s Last Show Billy Fei and cloud trials is a 22 x 26′ action-adventure series for kids ages 6 and up, which is co-developed with Scribble Studios and recently received a grant from Epic Games. Canadian producer/distributor Bejuba! Entertainment is also on board as an international distributor.
