Monday 04 April 2011

We managed to raise £85K for Camden Arts Centre in my patented '24 Hour Auction' where all my friends were asked to empty out their 'art store cupboards' and donate towards the auction. Everyone’s generosity totally amazed me, with donations coming from Alexandre De Cunha, Amir Shariat, Stefan Ratibor and Gagosian, Rob Diament and Carl Freedman, Thomas Dane and Francois Chantala, Nicky Verber and Michael Dean. We were out in full support for our lovely Jenni Lomax at Camden Arts Centre.

Being Human UK – Toby Whithouse confirms

"Mitchell Isn't Coming Back"

The following 3 minute video definitely confirms that Aidan Turner is not coming back to reprise his role of Mitchell in Being Human. But there is a possibility Craig Roberts (from Becoming Human) will be coming on-board for season four.

Press play:

Mike the Knight

w/Russell Tovey & Alfie Field

by Tom in Oz 18-4-2011

Mike the Knight is a digital cartoon series that is in current production. The lead voice of Mike is supplied by 13 year old Alfie Field who has appeared in Dr Who amongst other UK shows. Additional voice talent includes Russell Tovey. The series of books was originally Canadian and aimed at preschoolers (mainly boys). As tweeted by Russell, recently he said he was still working on completing voiceover sessions via the CBeebie team.

Mike the Knight has been presold to various territories. The medieval preschool series has been snapped up by ABC Australia, SVT Sweden, DRTV Denmark and NRK in Norway, bringing the total number of presales to seven. The CGI series, co-produced with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio, will premiere on Treehouse in Canada this September, TF1 in France in October and CBeebies in the UK in November. The four new territories are due to launch the series shortly after. HIT Entertainment said: “It is testament to the strength of Mike the Knight that so many broadcasters have picked up the series before we’ve had an episode to show them.

Toy company Character Group has strengthened its “armour” with a deal to sell toys based on a new children's TV series. The Oldham-based group, through its trading subsidiary Character Options, has been appointed as the UK and Ireland licensee for Mike the Knight, which will be shown on BBC station CBeebies in the autumn. Character Options also holds the UK rights for HIT brands Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam. “Everyone at HIT is hugely excited about Mike the Knight and, with Character now on board, we are confident that they will conjure up a spellbinding product range for this adventurous new series."

Nelvana Enterprises owns the broadcast and home entertainment rights for Mike the Knight in Latin America and France, including broadcast rights for the United States. HIT Entertainment holds the CG series' rights in all other territories, globally. Character Options is the UK/Ireland master toy licensee.

"We are pleased to enrich our strong preschool schedule with Mike the Knight. This new series will add value and keep building our positive ratings for this young target," Yann Labasque, Director of Youth Programs, TF1, commented.

Mike the knight, in Mike the Knight, will encounter trolls, dragons, and all other sorts of magic and mysticism that goes with a day in the life of a medieval preschooler. Mike hopes to grow up big and strong like his father, the King, and so sets off every day with his companion dragons, Squirt and Sparkie. The boy's sister Evie is eager to help as well -- although her status as a wizard-in-training usually does more harm than help. Mike the Knight focuses on self-discovery, personal responsibility, and other keynotes integral to youth progress and adventure.
