Cardiff Animation Festival

Cardiff Animation Festival

It was great once again to be one of the sponsors of the Cardiff Animation Festival.

Twt Productions is very dependent on the animation talent of Welsh companies and individuals for many of our projects so it’s important to us that we are able to support the sector where and when possible. There is a wealth of talent here in Wales and without festivals like this where there’s an opportunity for people to meet friends and colleagues, make contacts, hear from masters in their field and enjoy being part of the sector, is all important.

Tasty treats

Five years after working on the Welsh adaptation of Shane the Chef for Ho Ho Rights, we were delighted to be asked to consult on a suite of live action short form YouTube content for the Shane the Chef Chanel.


The channel is jam packed with recipes and great foodie clips from the series.

For the shorts, food fun and tasks were the order of the day when we filmed with fours super-star kids at Qu studios in Bristol. More content will be added weekly.

The Urdd’s  Fund For All – Summer Camps

Twt Productions is delighted to have been able to donate to the Urdd’s Fund For All – Summer Camps 2023-24. The fund was set up to collect donations from businesses and individuals to fund holidays in one of the Urdd’s camps for children from difficult financial backgrounds.

It’s a worthwhile cause and one we’re delighted to have been able to support.

We’re casting!

Annibendod is a series about the comedic trials and tribulations of a very messy child called Anni. Anni is our main character but she’s supported in her fun escapades by a gang of friends. We will be casting for Anni and her friends.

Anni also has an animated hamster called Bochau.

This is a comedy series with the emphasis on visual comedy. Adults will act alongside the children.

Filming will commence on May 29th, which is the Whitsunday holiday week – the week of the Urdd Eisteddfod. These dates will not change so consider carefully before applying if your child intends to take part in the Eisteddfod or you have organised a holiday.

Welcome Back!

Two series that Siwan has exec’d for other production companies will be returning to Cyw in 2024.

Produced by Telesgôp, Fferm Fach is a series about food and where it comes from. Huge congratulations to Will Samuel and the team for securing series 3  & 4.

Phil Higginson and Manon Jones’ Yellow Barrels’ first foray into kids TV has proved a success. Series 2 of their mixed-media puppet series, Dreigiau Cadi, filmed on the picturesque Abergynolwyn Railway is now underway.

Blociau Lliw, Aardman Animation’s colorful and attractive series will begin broadcasting on Cyw at 7am from October 2023.

As well as learning about colours, the series is full of wonderful songs. Lucky for us, our cast aren’t just talented voice actors but they’re fantastic singers. They are: Mared Williams, Gareth Elis, Gwawr Loader, Clare Hingott, Lily Beau and a recent WCMD graduate, Aled Gomer. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented team. A huge thank you to Music Director Dyfan Jones for directing and mixing the songs.

For this series, actor and director Geraint Morgan joined the team, stepping from the other side of the microphone to voice direct the series.

The scripts were brilliantly adapted by Dafydd Emyr and Caryl Parry Jones

The programs were recorded and mixed at Cranc Audio and the editor was Dewi Evans.

Colour Blocks – Blociau Lliw

This month is all about colours!

Twt Productions has recently started on a Welsh language version of the super-popular CBeebies show, Colour Blocks. There’s a pretty fast turnaround on this one, so we’ll be kicking off  later this week by recording some of the series’ songs this week with talented MD Dyfan Jones before moving on to recording the dialogue at Cranc Audio.

Blociau Lliw will air on S4C’s pre-school block, Cyw in October.


Following a tender process, we’re very pleased to be one of the companies selected to be part of S4C’s Cartoon Dubbing Framework, which will see us dubbing cartoons for S4C for the next 4 years. We can’t wait!
