The world's first-ever dance routine creation app, DanceMaker.ME, has launched for the iPad on the iTunes App Store.
Created by March Entertainment and À la Carte Videos Inc, with funding by the Canada Media Fund, DanceMaker.ME lets users create and share their own dance performances while customizing every part of the process, including beautiful 3D avatars, costumes, stages and special effects.
Mia and Me, the hit children's show combining live action and CG animation, has been renewed for a second season.
A ratings phenomenon, Mia and Me's highly successful performance convinced the production partners to greenlight a second season with 26 new episodes.
Season two of Mia and Me will be a co-production between March Entertainment, Lucky Punch (a joint venture between m4e and Hahn Film) and Rainbow Srl. The new season is scheduled for delivery in 2014/2015.
Mattel has been named as a toy partner for Mia and Me, a live-action/CG animation hybrid fantasy series developed and co-produced by Lucky Punch, Rainbow, March Entertainment and ZDF, and jointly distributed worldwide by m4e and Rainbow.
In addition to Mattel, a major licensing program is already underway for the property with international partners including Panini, Unilever Germany, Belltex, Clementoni, Schmidt Spiele and Egmont. Consumer products will be available from summer 2012.
