ANIMATED SERIES „PUFFINS“ IS THE MOST WATCHED TITLE ON APPLE TV

Short animated series „Puffins“, produced by Iervolino Entertainment and in whose creation participated also the employees from the local Iervolino Studios, has reached the first place in viewership, only one week after its release on Apple TV.   

I’m extremely glad to see that our ideas and creative approach to important social matters, such as race and gender equality, as well as environment protection, have encountered great reception among viewers. I believe that even such complex issues can be made attractive to the youngest audience, as raising awareness about hot topics is exactly our goal, apart from offering good-quality entertainment“, said Andrea Iervolino, the director and owner of the production company Iervolino Entertainment, which started doing business in Serbia this year.     

Animated series „Puffins“ follows adventures of five Arctic birds, helpers of the cunning walrus named Otto, while the main role was entrusted to Johnny Depp, whose voice, looks and certain personality traits helped creating the character of Johnny Puff. The series deals with the topics of equality and ecology in a fun and avant-garde manner, in order to draw the public attention to the current challenges our planet is facing every day. 

This series of 250 five-minute episodes represents a spin-off of the animated film „Arctic Dogs“, which also won the hearts of viewers all over the world and especially in the USA, where it is ranked as the third most watched title on Netflix. „Puffins“ are available on Apple TV and Amazon Prime digital platforms.

THE ART OF STORYBOARD – A PLACE WHERE FILM AND COMICS MEET

At the Great Hall of the Student Cultural Centre, a panel discussion on the topic Storyboard – a graphically visualized “Story” about the future screen adaptation of a certain script, was held within the broader project of the author Marija Ristić, art historian. The Storyboard project is educational and consists of a video presentation of selected works by foreign and domestic authors, represented in films, animated films and commercials, as well as of the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to storyboard in Serbia, presented in the Happy Gallery of SCC, which helps affirm this discipline within contemporary art. 

At the panel, during which the audience had the opportunity to hear direct experiences in working with storyboards or their application in the pre-production phase of a film, the participants were Rastko Ćirić, Professor at the Faculty of Applied Arts, Peter Nalli, Director of Animation and Visual Effects at Iervolino Entertainment, Dragutin Vukelić, Illustrator at Iervolino Studios, as well as illustrators and storyboard artists Borivoje Grbić, Radomir Izgarević i Bojan Debenak, while the moderator was the author of the project itself, Marija Ristić.  

Storyboard is the most noticeable spot where comics and film come together, but, unlike them, it does not require complete storytelling and does not address the audience directly, but the film crew. It is also extremely important for producers, cameramen and all members of the author’s team. However, this exhibition also raises some new questions as it demystifies the process of making the film. The storyboard, viewed as one of the stages of pre-production and exhibited in this way, shows that it can also exist as a separate art form”, Marija Ristić stated and added that, in addition to cooperation with educational institutions and art academies, and students who are studying there, the support of large production companies is very important for such initiatives.  

This was recognized by the newly established company for the production of short animated films, Iervolino Studios, which operates in Serbia as a branch of the international production Iervolino Entertainment, and whose representatives shared their experience and expertise with those present.   

“I don’t think I’ve been to an exhibition of this type since Disneyland, when I had the opportunity to see exclusively the works of local storyboard artists, which says a lot about its quality. We are pleased to support artists, their projects and initiatives, because with the development of technology, computers are faster, and location is not nearly as important as artists. People who create content on that state-of-the-art equipment are crucial”, Peter Nalli, director of animation and visual effects at Iervolino Entertainment, stated. “During our work with people in Serbia so far and exchange of experiences, we realized that this is a country of really great artistic talents and potentials. Some of them are already working at Iervolino Studios, but our doors are always open for new creators with new ideas, who are not even aware of what they can do. “

IERVOLINO ENTERTAINMENT IS THE FIRST BY VIEWERSHIP ON STREAMING PLATFORMS

A little over a month ago, the production company Iervolino Entertainment opened its first studio in Serbia for the production of short animated content in Novi Sad.

The story follows the polar fox Swifty, who finally got her dream job – she will deliver packages around the North Pole, together with her inseparable friends, a polar bear named PB and the red fox Jade. The only obstacle on the way to the title of “Best Arctic Delivery Man” is represented by the cunning walrus Otto von Walrus and his mischievous assistants – Puffins, who make the work of these unusual couriers more difficult every day…

The first 30 employees have already started working in the Novi Sad studio, while the evaluation and employment of new staff is still ongoing, as well as the plans to open the next studio in Belgrade. This project is also specific because all phases of the creative process will take place here, and the finished product will be the intellectual property of the state of Serbia. In the initial phase, all content produced in our country will be based on the world-famous animated film Arctic Justice, which was the third most watched film on Netflix in America. 

The production of this short animated series is signed by Andrea Iervolino and Monica Bacardi, and in cooperation with the companies Paradox Studios and WWPS, which also own digital rights to distribute content.

“I am very proud of this collaboration and the success we have achieved on digital platforms. Our studio is currently focused on the development and production of exceptional short content, adapted to mobile and streaming services. Moreover, I am convinced that in the next ten years, as much as 98% of all content will be short-format and consumed on mobile devices”, Andrea Iervolino, director and founder of the production company Iervolino Entertainment, said. His satisfaction is shared by Luca Matrundola, co-founder and CEO of WWPS, who pointed out that they will work together to ensure that future products experience the same success.

JOHNNY DEPP DID IT AGAIN – WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS IS AMONG FIVE MOST WATCHED FILMS IN THE US

After opening the studio in Serbia for the production of short animated content for the international market distribution, as well as signing the contract with Johnny Depp, the production company Iervolino Entertainment continues the trend of successful achievements and breaking records. 

Another collaboration between this famous Hollywood actor and the Italian production, the joint film Waiting for the Barbarians, reached the fifth place on the list of the most watched films in the US on the Apple TV platform, only three days since its global premiere.  

The film is based on the famous novel of the same name, by the South African Nobel prize winner John Maxwell Coetzee, who also wrote the screenplay, while the Colombian Ciro Guerra was the director. Alongside Johnny Depp, the main roles are played by Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson. 

“This is a really pleasant surprise for all of us, as Apple TV is one of the world’s most popular video streaming platforms,” ​​said Andrea Iervolino, director and founder of the production company Iervolino Entertainment. He adds that this only confirms the importance of digital platforms in today’s cinematography, after the previous success of their animated film Arctic Dogs, as the third most-watched film on Netflix in the US.  

The plot takes place on the borders of an imaginary oriental empire, and focuses on the eternal question of the relationship between the natives and the conquerors, “advanced civilization” and “barbarians”. The controversial Colonel Joll (Johnny Depp) suddenly arrives in the seemingly peaceful border area of ​​the empire, under the leadership of an elderly Magistrate interpreted by Mark Rylance. By his brutality towards nearby natives, the Colonel provokes in the Magistrate suspicion and the spirit of rebellion against the regime to which he also belongs.   

After its first premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival, Waiting for the Barbarians is now available to the general public starting from August 7 on digital streaming platforms, while many critics and fans on social media have already declared it to be “Johnny Depp’s comeback film”.
