Eye/Present taps Minecraft pair

Fledgling UK production outfit Eye/Present is developing an animated series with a comedy duo famous on the web for their YouTube videos made using Minecraft.

Xephos & Honeydew (52×11′) will feature characters voiced by Lewis Brindley and Simon Lane, whose online channel Yogscast was the first in the UK to reach one billion views.

Eye/Present will now seek pre-buys, coproducers and distributors to finalise the budget for the animated series.

The company, set up towards the end of last year, is a joint venture between London-based production outfit Squint/Opera and consultancy firm Serious Lunch, which was launched by Genevieve Dexter in 2010.

The two companies previously worked together to fund the CBeebies series Messy Goes to Okido.

“To have two comedy characters that already command such a huge fan base before we even go to series or film is a rare find for us,” said Dexter.

“We have been telling ad-libbed stories with our characters via the medium of Minecraft for four years now and are delighted that they will now star in a fully animated series from Eye Present. The time is right,” said Brindley.
