Distribution360 is going global with original cross-platform comedy content from Quebec-based Salambo Productions, and TAC.tv (known in French as tetesaclaques.tv).
The award-winning series of comedic animated shorts already has a successful run across multiple media platforms in French-speaking Canada and France. The series has now expanded to add English shorts to its slate, and Distribute360 will now handle international distribution for the program.
TAC.tv content is available as 181 x 3 minute shorts or 23 x 30 minute episodes. TAC clips are already available in Canada wirelessly, delivered to media enabled smartphones by carriers like Rogers and Telus.
The series features a cast of animated characters and inventive settings, sculpted from modeling clay. In post production, the creator, Michel Beaudet, superimposes his own moving eyes, mouth, and nose, creating unique characters with over-the-top personalities.
"Strong, multi-platform content is the driving force behind the continued success of TAC.tv," noted Stéphanie Röckmann-Portier, Managing Director/Head of Sales, Distribution360. "[W]e're excited to be working with them to further the brand's growth. The wild and weird world of TAC.tv will definitely keep audiences entertained with all of its crazy antics."
"The popularity of TAC.tv surpassed our initial expectations, and has amassed a large fan base that we're looking to expand," added Beaudet, producer of TAC.tv/Salambo Productions. "We look forward to working with Distribution360 to further distribute our content to new territories."
Distribution360, launched by two Canadian production companies, marblemedia and SEVEN24 Films, distributes content across all platforms in the digital media space, including TV, VOD, DVD, online and mobile. The company provides brand integration services when and where appropriate, and monetizes television and interactive content with a focus on kid's, drama and factual programming.
Based in Europe, Röckmann-Portier leads daily operations as Managing Director/Head of Sales, building on her previous roles as VP of Content Strategy & Acquisitions for online video service Joost, and VP of International Sales and Head of Factual Programming for Alliance Atlantis Communications Inc.
