Mexico City, Mexico, April 30th, 2010
Agent Macaw: Shaken and Stirred, the third feature film produced by Ánima Estudios – leader in animated entertainment in Latin America, with more than 2800 minutes produced to date – was awarded the Diosa de Plata for Best Animated Movie.
The prize was awarded by the Mexican Association of Film Journalists (PECIME), and was accepted by the film’s director Andrés Couturier on behalf of the producers, himself and the staff of Ánima Estudios. He commented that he was very excited, and said that Mexico has everything needed to make world class movies.
Agent Macaw: Shaken and Stirred opened in February 2009, and is the story of Tambo Macaw, an agent bird at the Animal Central Intelligence (CIA), who for years has dreamed about being the most famous agent.
This film was supported by FIDECINE (Investing Fund for Film Incentives) and it features the voices of Jaime Camil (Tambo Macaw), Silvia Pinal (Mamá Osa) and Dulce Maria (Dr. Molly Cocatu)
In addition, this film featured the prestigious film director Carlos Carrera as a creative advisor, and cartoonist Trino, who brought his acid wit to the creation of dialogues.
After winning this prize, Agent Macaw: Shaken and Stirred continues to be shown in different countries, as has been the case with Wizards and Giants and Imaginum, films that, seven years after their opening, have been sold in more than a hundred countries.
Ánima Estudios continues to develop other projects such as Kung Fu Magoo, in co-production with Classic Media and Santo Domingo Films; Gaturro, in co-production with Illusion Estudios; and the El Chavo animated series. All these projects will strengthen Ánima’s position as a world class studio.
