From Prensario Internacional:

Kidscreen 2020: el foco es en los niños, no en las plataformas

La segunda jornada de Kidscreen Summit continúa hoy, 11 de febrero en el Intercontinental con una significativa participación internacional y ritmo de negocios. El buen momento del sector se comprueba con importante volumen de reuniones en todas las áreas del hotel, más allá de que algunos participantes insisten con la idea de que hay menos gente este año por el coronavirus.

Es cierto que la delegación de China, al igual que otras asiáticas que venían regularmente, cancelaron su visita; y es esperable que algunos otros también lo hayan hecho por precaución. Pero en términos generales los grandes tomadores de decisión están en Miami.

‘El foco debe estar puesto en los niños no en las plataformas. Debemos volver a pensar en ellos a la hora de producir y programar, y no tanto en los vehículos que distribuirán ese contenido’, resaltó Marie McCann, senior director, CBS Kids (Canadá) en un panel con otros pubcasters como BBC, ABC (Australia), NRK (Noruega) y PBS (USA).

‘Lo más importante para un generador de contenidos es que estos se encuentren con la audiencia sin importar la plataforma. Nuestras pantallas conviven, convergen y sinergizan. Hoy es importante estar en todos lados, y la promoción juega un rol central’, fue otro de los conceptos en ese panel.

Coincidió con ellos Tatiana Rodríguez, SVP de Nickelodeon Latin America, quien agregó: ‘El encendido general ha caído un 10% aproximadamente en América Latina, pero la TV sigue siendo el motor principal para el lanzamiento de producto y un actor clave en el mix de medios. Lanzamos nuevas plataformas como TrendyByNick con siete verticales, y se vienen más en breve’, apuntó.

La crisis de YouTube Kids sigue dando que hablar. Algunos productores globales han perdido una fuente de ingreso estimada en USD 30.000-40.000 mensuales. Sin embargo, el AVOD más grande del mundo anunció al mismo tiempo un fondo de USD 100 millones para ayudar a los productores a generar contenido ‘reflexivo y original’. Según un documento revelado por Kidscreen, busca contenido que muestre el ‘espíritu de YouTube’ para niños de 3 a 8 años.

‘Es tiempo de buscar nuevos modelos de negocio, basados en la asociatividad. Es cada vez más complejo llegar solos a los grandes OTTs, por tanto es necesario ir con proyectos sólidos, bien trabajados’, describió Carlos Biern, presidente de animación del grupo Toonz (India).

Latinoamérica es un buen caso con La Liga de la Animación (Premios Quirino, Animation! INCAA y Pixelatl), de la que ya ha surgido Dos Pajaritos de Palermo Estudio (Uruguay) y Can Can Club (Argentina) presentados en MIFA-Annecy y Pixelatl, o Los Amigos, el nuevo estudio conjunto anunciado por Red Animation (Perú), PunkRobot (Chile) y Hype (Brasil) que generará y producirá en 2D y CGI en tiempo real en los tres países. El primer proyecto es la serie preescolar Guitar & Drum para Disney Latin America.

¿Tendencias? El terror es un género que está ganando terreno entre los niños. ‘Entre lo 6 y 9 años un 10% de ellos está interesado en historias de terror; entre los 10 y los 13, un 40%; y en niños de más de 13 años, un 80%. En la mayoría de los casos el género es introducido por los padres’, apuntó Monica Dreger, VP, Head of Global Consumer Insights, Mattel.

Se ven en Kidscreen nuevos proyectos animados que combinan técnicas clásicas con modernas. Es el caso de la animación 3D en tiempo real: se trabaja en 3D con técnicas de Unity o Unreal, que provienen de la industria del videojuego. Así surgió la primera serie de este tipo en Francia: Edmond & Lucy (53x011) de Miam! Animation (Francia), que abrirá el 2 de marzo un estudio de 80m2 con 20 empleados en el corazón de París para comenzar a producirla. Se espera que la serie estrene en France Télévisions en 1Q 2022.

Los polos tradicionales se fortalecen, y otros nuevos aparecen. Se nota una fuerte presencia de Canadá y Corea (con los dos principales spots en el Meeting Point A), pero también de Brasil y Japón. Se siguen potenciando Costa Rica y El Caribe con Jamaica y Trinidad y Tobago, y aparecen nuevos fondos de financiamiento en España, donde se está discutiendo el incremento de las ayudas nacionales y regionales esperando anunciarlas finalmente este año, y Malasia, que confirmó el Digital Content Ecosystem Policy (DCEP) para el que destinará USD 5 millones en 2020 con foco en capacitación, desarrollo, marketing y promoción.

From Kidscreen:

Everything you missed at Kidscreen Summit

Three big themes emerged from this year's event in Miami: What’s going on with streaming, what is the future of franchises, and how to foster talent?

All anyone could talk about at this year’s Kidscreen Summit were three things: What’s going to happen with streaming this year? What is the future of franchises? And who is going to make the next best show/how can we make them come work for us?

Panelists and attendees grappled with these topics throughout the event, and while no one really knows the answers, if anyone was going to be able to figure it out, it would be the movers and shakers who showed up to the InterContinental in Miami this past week. Now as the event draws to a close, this is what we’ve heard them saying.

What does streaming look like in 2020?

With Disney+ and Apple TV+ both launching late last year, and HBO Max and NBCUniversal’s Peacock on the way in 2020, streaming is not only a big conversation, it’s the conversation. Others are also throwing their hat into the ring as CBS All Access started picking up kids content for the first time, Viacom’s Pluto TV continued to expand across territories and BBC iPlayer is expanding its window to keep content longer.

For plenty of panelists, finding numbers in the streamers remains a challenge, though plenty are trying to find new ways of getting those coveted data insights. Anna Moorefield, the VP of global distribution sales at the Jim Henson Company talked about the virtues of Amazon Prime Direct in KSS’s Hacking the SVOD panel. Jim Henson began uploading its back catalogue on the user-generated platform specifically because it was able to provide deeper digital data than other platforms. “We get a revenue report every month, which includes a customer engagement ranking in specific territories, mostly their key storefronts. It tells you how your content is performing relative to other content that is uploaded onto Amazon Prime Video Direct,” says Moorefield. In turn, the Muppet makers are able to use that information when they approach new markets or begin efforts to revitalize older programming.

And while there may be a disconnect between the for-profit streamers and the public broadcasters, the Redefining Pubcasting in an OTT Universe panel made it clear that the pair have to find a way to work together moving forward. The streamers are where the kids are, and since pubcasting is created in the public interest, “the most important thing as the public broadcaster is to get the content in front of the kids and we know they watch every day at all times of the day on different platforms,” said CBC Kids’ senior director Marie McCann.

What is the future of franchises?

And with all of those platforms, a lot of producers (and the platforms themselves) are banking on big name franchises to stand-out among a deluge of content. (This includes, but is not limited to, Netflix’s Chronicles of Narnia original series, Nickelodeon Star Trek for an aged-down audiences and Apple TV+ kick-off with Snoopy in Space, Sesame Workshop and Ghostwriter reboot). But will well-worn titles draw in audiences? Or will shiny new toys look better?

Perhaps it’s moot: In the panel, What Keeps You Up at Night, president of eOne family & brands Olivier Dumont said the who isn’t as relevant, as the how many. Working with a single platform or broadcaster and creating a strong partnership is the best way to build a brand. This deeper partnership provides producers an opportunity to roll with the punches as the landscape changes. “If it’s a true partnership then you can succeed together and you can find the good solution for everyone,” says Dumont.

Yet, a single partner or platform approach may cause issues down the line as today’s streamers and broadcasters are asking for more rights than ever, and it’s causing issues when certain rights are under-utilized. CAKE’s Ed Galton recommended that producers try to work in renegotiating opportunities in early stages contracts so that producers can ensure no aspect of their shows’ rights are being neglected so that franchises can continue to be built upon.

On the broadcaster side, Cartoon Network’s VP of content acquisitions and co-productions Adina Pitt agreed that broadcasters are asking for more rights but that’s because—at her network at least—they’re actively looking to built deep franchises. Yet this approach has an associated cost, and it means broadcasters are picking up less, but investing more into what they do pick up, she says. As she, and other broadcasters see it, if they’re going to be in a partnership for a long time, the network needs some assurance.

And, for a bit of countering opinion, in the Franchise Debate: Are Kids Sick of the Same old IPs? (pictured), Sixteen South’s creative director Colin Williams reminded broadcasters and distributors that plenty of IPs have the opportunity to become franchises…but they need the support of broadcasters to do so. Frequency and promotion are needed, and sometimes, not provided for new ideas, at least in the eyes of producers. This “discoverability” conundrum was echoed across a few panels, and there’s real concern among producers that kids simply don’t know how to find the shows that are being made. “It’s not enough to make a good show,” Matthew Berkowitz, CCO at Atomic Cartoon reminded audiences in the Hacking the SVOD panel. “People need to know how to find it.” And with this shift toward streaming, no one has quite cracked that code yet.

Who are the next generation of creators and how do we foster their growth?

Ultimately, no new franchise can be built without building up the next generation of creators. That topic kept coming up again and again, particularly at the Groundwork for Growth: Setting New Creators Up to Succeed panel.

As there is often a disconnect between the writing and animation side in the industry, creator and executive producer at Nickelodeon, Niki Lopez, recommended pairing artists with writers earlier in their careers so they can better understand the industry holistically. EP and creator at Laughing Wild, Chris Nee, said it’s easy to be intimidated by the business side of the industry when you’re a creative and just starting out, so it’s important to educate and empower yourself so you can be your own advocate. Ask for advice, and ask plenty of questions, she said. But, on her other planel, Showrunners: Not Just for Grown-Ups Anymore, she reminded procuders and creators in the room that it is the responsibility of the top talent to foster good, welcoming environments. Leaders should be going out for meals, throwing parties and celebrating the people they work with. We live in a world where the screen can be the center of a person’s universe, but we still need a community to be our best work selves.

That’s it for Kidscreen Summit 2020! We’ll see you all next year back in Miami next year.

From Prensario Internacional:

Kidscreen 2020: sinergizar en la convergencia

En un clima de buenas expectativas de futuro para la mayoría de los asistentes, Kidscreen Summit finalizó con éxito e impresiones muy positivas. La primera de ellas tiene que ver con el balance costo-calidad, y la segunda con el acceso a las tendencias globales.

A pesar de que el fee de ingreso es alto (unos USD 1900), la presencia de ejecutivos de primera línea lo convierte en un evento central para la industria. ‘A fin de cuentas, termina siendo muy redituable para todos nosotros estar aquí’, coincidieron algunos participantes.

Productores y distribuidores tienen aquí la posibilidad de reunirse con estos jugadores, entre los que están los grandes grupos de medios, plataformas digitales, coproductores, inversores. Y del lado comprador, es un buen momento del año para analizar proyectos en etapas iniciales, pero también para cerrar acuerdos que vienen en negociación.

Kidscreen Summit permite vislumbrar de antemano las tendencias globales, que se irán desarrollando a lo largo de 2020. Y es además un buen evento para fabricantes de juguetes, empresas de licensing, servicios tecnológicos, marcas y anunciantes, además de productores musicales. Todos convergen en armonía: se necesitan los unos a los otros.

Se ha notado en esta edición una baja en la participación estimada en un 10% frente al año pasado. Las razones son varias: por un lado el miedo al coronavirus (con la cancelación de la participación de la delegación de China); y por otro las fusiones y compras en la industria que reducen el número de ejecutivos en los mercados internacionales.

Más allá de la merma en la participación, ésta no afectó el encuentro ni mucho menos el volumen de negocios. Todos los sectores del Intercontinental han sido tomados por ejecutivos. El ritmo fue vibrante con movimiento constante de una a otra área del hotel.

Por otro lado se reactivaron los rumores de que el evento pueda mudarse de ciudad el año próximo, aunque participantes regulares señalaron que es una temática que se repite cada año. Sonaron ciudades como Nueva York, descartada inicialmente por las bajas temperaturas y malas experiencias anteriores, y Los Ángeles, aunque la mayoría cree que Miami es la que cubre mejor las expectativas.

Como se ha venido destacando en este mismo espacio, hay un fuerte foco en contenido preescolar, tanto de los grandes como pequeños creadores. Muchos de ellos están ya monetizando el contenido en YouTube y en Miami buscaron ir al siguiente paso: Perro Chocolo es un fenómeno online con 2 billones de views en el canal de YouTube, donde tiene 4 millones de suscriptores. Es un éxito en México, el US Hispano, Perú y Chile, y ya tenemos canciones y juguetes. Queremos desarrollar ahora la serie preescolar de televisión’, explicaron Patricio Gamonal, productor ejecutivo de Atiempo (Chile).

Los cambios en la industria han roto la linealidad de los negocios: un IP exitoso en TV derivaba en una serie de negocios ancilares. Pero ahora también es al revés: una producción que surge en una plataforma digital, busca ir a la TV para cerrar el círculo. Es un buen resumen que lejos de la desaparición, estamos frente a una retroalimentación cada vez más necesaria de medios.

¿Qué buscaron los players en Kidscreen? Daniela Vieira, Netflix Latin America: ‘Proyectos originales de animación en América Latina’. Guillermo Sierra, HITN (USA): ‘Contenido interactivo para nuestra app Edye’. Sophie Sandoval, Televisa (México): ‘IPs que permitan una explotación 360, sinergizando con nuestro equipo de licencias’. Tatiana Rodríguez, Nickelodeon: ‘Formatos scripted en todos los géneros’. Pedro Mota Carmo, Dreamia (Portugal): ‘Contenido preescolar para Canal Panda y kids/teens para Biggs’. Suhas Kadav, Cosmos (Singapur): ‘Alianzas de coproducción en las Américas’.

Con el lanzamiento confirmado en marzo para América Latina, Pluto TV está robusteciendo su oferta de contenido infanto-juvenil. Eduardo Arias busca contenidos para paquetizar en futuras señales que lanzará en la región luego de marzo.

Al igual que en la industria de series, hay en la animación un fortalecimiento de los AVODs con más ofertas para la audiencia. ‘Vemos una gran necesidad de contenidos por parte de las plataformas, una audiencia más ávida que nunca y dinero fresco de la publicidad. Es cuestión de ponernos de acuerdo, es un buen momento de la industria’, completó un importante productor europeo.
