Neptuno Films was established in Terrassa (Barcelona) in 1991, and soon became a driving force in the world animation production industry. Since then Neptuno has experienced steady growth, building up of a library of animated characters with universal appeal, especially brands such as Connie the Cow, Dougie in Disguise, and Megaminimals. The company currently constitutes one of the largest fully-fledged studios in Europe with a distribution arm that manages its TV, video and merchandising rights portfolio. In The Global Animation Business report, with the participation of CARTOON, the European animation association, Neptuno Films ranked second among the most prolific European studios. The company was chosen as one of the top 10 international animation studios outside the United States by Animation Magazine.
The distribution division of the group operates internationally. It has established co-production and distribution agreements for series such as The Sea Princesses, a co-production between Southern Star and Flamma Films and Poppets Town, a co-production between Decode (DHX) and OTC (Sony). Neptuno’s distribution arm also markets existing programmes from its catalogue and secures international operations for its portfolio across all media, from television, video, licensing and publishing, to mobile and web rights.
