  • It’s a wolf-eats-duck world. But it’s a world in which little boys can find extraordinary courage and – with a little help from a crazy bird and a dreamy duck (and none whatsoever from a fat, lethargic cat and two hooligan hunters) - can catch the wolf.

  • This much-loved tale has resonated deeply with over five generations of children, enchanted by its power and sense of fun. In this fantastical new version by prize-winning director Suzie Templeton, specially made to be screened theatrically in concert halls worldwide accompanied by live orchestras as well as to be seen internationally both on TV and DVD, is set to delight a whole new audience.

  • BreakThru Films’ innovative animated film version of Prokofiev’s classic work, set to a new recording by the world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra, was produced at the Oscar®-winning Se-ma-for Studios in Poland using stop-frame model animation (the technique popularised by Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations) and state-of-the-art digital technology.
