Accorder Music Publishing is rapidly becoming the first choice music publisher for Russian animators with the signing of two more leading companies – Wizart Animation and Aeroplane Productions. These join the Riki Group, one of the largest children’s media companies in Russia, which appointed Accorder in 2012. Wizart has produced the beautiful animated feature The Snow Queen which was released at the end of 2012. A sequel is expected in 2014. Aeroplane produce The Fixies (104 x 6), a series about little creatures that secretly mend gadgets which is being sold worldwide.

The Russian animation industry is one of the longest established in the world. Last year it celebrated 100 years since the first Russian animated film - Beautiful Leukanida by Wladyslaw Starewicz. In recent years the industry has started to look outwards, producing content that appeals far beyond Eastern Europe.
