Production: Zou Seasons 1&2

Format: 104 × 11′
Target: 3-6 y.o.

I translated Seasons 1 & 2 of this award winning series adapted from the books featuring Michel Gay’s lovely little zebra, Zou.

For this specific project (commissioned by Cyber Group Studios for Disney UK), I am working both into English and into French, which can present obvious challenges, in particular with regards to juggling languages! It was very exciting as I was involved both at pre-production and production levels – from bibles and notes of intent to pitches, treatments and scripts. A wonderful adventure!

Translations/Adaptations undertaken for “Zou”:

  • Series Bible (French > English)
  • Pitches and Storylines (French into English)
  • Treatments (French into English)
  • Scripts (English into French; French into English)
