Millimages celebrates 30 years and arrival of new general manager

Marina Narishkin joins French animation studio as it eyes expansion in its milestone year.

The French animation studio behind the popular Molang brand, Millimages is marking its 30th anniversary in June 2021, with the arrival of a new general manager giving it a further boost.

Marina Narishkin (pictured above) has been charged with spearheading growth at Millimages, with an end goal of making it a household name worldwide.

Marina – who joins the Paris-based company from TF1, where she spent five years as head of licensing – previously spent over 15 years with WildBrain CPLG, working with clients including Fox, LucasFilm and DreamWorks among others.

Her role at Millimages will include overseeing the transformation of the studio’s business model through the diversification of its productions, the development of new TV series and feature films and enhanced licensing activities and products.

Molang will continue to be a focus, with the company having recently successfully launched ecommerce website

In addition, Millimages will be looking to revive certain IP in its library including Louie & Yoko, Mouk, Corneil & Bernie and 64 Zoo Lane. It will also intensify development on over 15 new projects (TV series and feature films).

“Now more than ever, the world is in need of quality entertainment with a cause,” Marina commented. “To take on Millimages as my next project is to embrace the values that I have always lived by.

“There’s no need to revolutionise Millimages, which has already proved itself ahead of the times for some time now. My goal is to help evolve the studio’s already existing factors of success, by mobilising all of the multi-cultural forces within the studio and by developing strategic new partnerships worldwide, in order to make Millimages shine brighter than ever before.”

Roch Lener, founder and ceo of Millimages, added: “Our industry is going through drastic changes. Nevertheless, one of Millimages’ defining characteristics, in addition to creativity, is its ability to adapt in times of adversity. The arrival of Marina Narishkin as general manager is proof of that adaptability – reinforcing the Millimages team now more than ever.”
