Global distributors and broadcasters eagerly wait the launch of the new animated TV series “The Peculiar Adventures of Willow B. Star” in MIPCOM, the world’s entertainment content market, this 5-8 October 2015 in Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France
NEW YORK – Sept. 30, 2015 – The only female head of an animation studio operating in NYC, Ariane Smith was inspired by Wes Anderson’s “Grand Budapest Hotel” and David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” in writing this ‘tween series titled “The Peculiar Adventures of Willow B. Star.”
Ariane Smith, a master storyteller, has always been inspired by David Lynch and the Twin Peaks music. She combines this with her admiration of the style shot, visualization and speed of Wes Anderson’s “Grand Budapest Hotel.” Portrayal of Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Willem DaFoe, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Jeff Goldblum and Ralph Fiennes certainly influenced the impact of the stylistic inspiration Ariane exudes in her heroine, Willow B. Star – a two dimensional character in a three dimensional presentation. This 2.5D structure is accentuated in juxtaposition with an eclectic style of humor and some sarcasm with sharp conversation.
The romantic surrounding of action and suspense from Alfred Hitchcock’s quirky shooting style is incorporated with the grandiosity of Agatha Christie’s mysteries and pervades the adventures of Willow B. Star.
Mark Simon, the director of this TV series says, “I always love Ariane’s writing. But this animated series is different, with a distinctive point of view and a great sense of humor. This show was hysterical and a lot of fun to work on.”
Will “The Peculiar Adventures of Willow B. Star”, with its unique set design, mystery, adventure and humor, be acclaimed by critics and viewers alike? Will it follow in the footsteps of “Grand Budapest Hotel” which garnered the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and the Academy Awards for Best Production Design, Best Original Score, Best Costume Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling?
The book will be simultaneously released with the initial airing of the TV series, and Ariane Smith is bringing the first of 26 episodes to Marché Internationale de Programmes Communications (MIPCOM), International Market of Communications Programmes in Cannes, France.
