Team DroniX follows the fun-filled spy adventures of three young drone loving students at the elite tech school, Hawkings Academy. There you’ll find pilot Buck Roquette, designer Tom Chessmat, and engineer Vicky Risk – and when they combine their talents to build a drone like no other, DroniX takes flight! Competing against other student teams, they must fend off the evil intentions of some envious individuals among them.
Team DroniX is produced by Technicolor Animation Productions, who teamed up with French public broadcaster France Télévisions and Gloob Brazil, a children’s entertainment channel created by Globosat. Technicolor Animation Productions is also working with master toy partner and drone manufacturer Silverlit, with PGS handling global distribution, licensing and merchandising activities.
Sandrine Nguyen, one of the Creators & Producer from Technicolor Animation Productions, oversees development and production of the show.
We’re thrilled to have leading broadcasters on board for our original new series. Team DroniX is much more than a show about drones. It has interesting, diverse characters, an elaborate universe, and a story that is sure to captivate boys and girls alike. And with drones hotter than ever, we can’t wait for kids to be introduced to this exciting new series.”Sandrine Nguyen
Here’s what some of the other key players had to say about working on Team DroniX.
Team DroniX combines an original universe, adventures with complex themes, without forgetting action and comedy, through its engaging characters. An ambitious mix that explores new horizons of the children’s TV series.”Carine Néant, Creator & Writer from Technicolor Animation
We purposely looked for a classical 2D approach into the 3D technique through the mise-en-scène, to build a series that we consider as non-classical in other ways…”Franck Michel, Director from Technicolor Animation Productions
Beyond the theme of drones, which provides an opening, our motivation was to create characters evolving in a universe of intrigue, suspense, spying and infiltration – with a real sense of adventure and a touch of humor.”David Fauré, Creator for Team DroniX & Co-Director/Artistic Director
It’s been such a thrill bringing our heroes to life, imagining their joys and pains, building their friendships. And discovering their secrets is a wonderful human adventure with appealing characters, who exhibit the capabilities of an amazing drone, in both competitions and rescue missions!”Isabelle Dinh Van Chi, Creator & Creative Producer
We’re always looking for content that mixes adventure with other interesting elements, and Team DroniX is the perfect vehicle to offer boys and girls alike the chance to embark on thrilling adventures with Buck, Tim and Vicky – modern, diverse characters our audiences will care about and relate to – amidst the elaborate high-tech universe of drones.”Pierre Siracusa, Director of Animation at France Télévisions, in Animation Magazine
Drones are getting hotter than ever [and PGS looks forward to working on] defining a new kids’ franchise within the genre.”Guillaume Soutter, President of PGS’s Hong Kong-based office, in Variety
