Accorder Gets the Blues

Multi-BAFTA winner Blue Zoo, the leading UK animation house behind some of the best of the new wave of kids’ animation, has appointed Accorder Music as its worldwide music publisher. Since the creative powerhouse was founded over ten years ago Blue Zoo has forged strong links with all the leading broadcasters and earned a reputation for producing some of the most innovative work for commercials, TV series and branding around (picking up three BAFTAs along the way no less). Blue Zoo are on a winning streak at the moment with three shows airing in the UK: Tree Fu Tom (the top CBeebies show), Olive the Ostrich for Nick Jnr and Alphablocks for CBeebies.  The company was co-founded by Oli Hyatt, Chair of UK Animation and a key figure in the successful campaign to persuade Government to bring tax breaks to the UK animation industry.
