Iconic independant French animation studio and Emmy nominee, Millimages is celebrating its 30th birthday this year.

Internationally renowned for its quality products and creative savoir-faire, Millimages is looking to its most succesful IP – Molang – to bring the studio to new heights for this pivotal year. Molang’s exponential growth – be it on television screens worldwide or on social media – has already allowed for the studio to unlock new dimensions. Yet this year is already proving unlike any other. The appointment of a new General Manager – Marina Narishkin – is set to catapult the studio’s expansion in more ways than one. Marina has been brought on to continue to grow the Millimages brand in their 30th year. Her role will include overseeing the transformation of the studio’s business model through the diversification of Millimages’ productions, the development of new TV series and feature films and enhanced licensing activities and products.

After over 15 years at CPLG/Wildbrain (Fox, Lucasfilm, Dreamworks, Marvel, FFF, UEFA…) and five years as Head of Licensing at TF1, Marina is taking on her newest challenge: spearheading the growth of Millimages, with an end goal of making it a household name worldwide.

Marina Narishkin, General Manager of Millimages comments: “I was immediately intrigued by Millimages’ ambition and vision for the next few years, as well as the studio’s DNA which is defined by creativity, open-mindedness and cultural diversity. Now more than ever, the world is in need of quality entertainment with a cause. To take on Millimages as my next project is to embrace the values that I have always lived by. It’s also to take on the forces of technological innovation and the international market, all within a flagship of French animation."
