Embankment Launches Animation ‘Bollywoof’

Embankment has launched global pre-sales on the animated pic Bollywoof, directed by Frederic Du Chau (Racing Stripes), reuniting The Amazing Maurice producers Cantilever Media and Sky Cinema who are joining forces with Mikros Animation. UK’s Newscope Films co-produces alongside Good Story Productions and Parti Productions. The script was developed with the support of the BFI. “Bollywoof is Basil’s adventure – a very British Springer Spaniel lost in India, trying to find his human family. Chased by a fearsome dog catcher, Basil teams up with a street-wise, Bollywood-obsessed Street Dog forever living off his wits, and a feisty holy cow with a lot of attitude,” said Du Chau. “The movie’s story is epic – action-packed, emotional, funny, and stacked with vibrant locations – its core purpose is to have great fun and celebrate the importance of friendship, and the true value of emotional connection, whilst basking in the vitality and warmth of India. Artist Stephen Hanson’s intimate and joyful character design and visual development is inspirational.”
