BODEGA Animation Signs Tiny Industries

Creators of The Tiny Chef Show join BODEGA's roster of directors

BODEGA Animation Signs Tiny Industries

BODEGA Animation has added Tiny Industries to its roster. Tiny Industries specialises in character driven storytelling across multiple distribution platforms.  

Tiny Industries is the noted creator of The Tiny Chef Show. The Tiny Chef is described as Julia Child meets Mr. Rogers. The charismatic six-inch tall chef presides in his rustic kitchen as he cooks and sings. The Tiny Chef currently enjoys a large following on YouTube and Instagram, and Tiny Industries has recently partnered with Kristen Bell, Ron Howard, and Brian Grazer to develop content for Imagine Entertainment.

The Tiny Industries team is comprised of three co-creators Rachel Larsen, Adam Reid and Ozlem Akturk. Reid is a co-founder of BODEGA and is also one of BODEGA’s live action roster directors. His feature debut Hello Lonesome was nominated for a Film Independent Spirit Award. Larsen is a leading stop motion animator of feature films and television with contributions to Isle of Dogs, Coraline, Paranorman, and Tumble Leaf. Cinematographer Ozlem Akturk brings feature film experience from Frankenweenie and Isle of Dogs, and a particular skill with stop motion photography.

Speaking for the trio, Reid noted, "BODEGA Animation is a perfect fit for Tiny Industries. BODEGA understands how thinking tiny can lead to a huge impact creatively. We can’t wait to craft miniature worlds with them, featuring unforgettable characters and engaging stories.”

Bill Hewes, BODEGA Animation EP commented: "Tiny Industries and The Tiny Chef are a great addition to our animation division. We can now offer the character, imagination, and skills unique to Tiny Industries on non-chef related projects.”
