Intelligent TV giving kids a voice
Pickled Possum Productions makes innovative and fresh children's TV for New Zealand youth aged zero to twelve years.
The preschool programming is carefully crafted for the most special audience of zero to five year olds. Each programme has an early childhood specialist advisor to ensure programmes are age and developmentally appropriate.
For the older school age audience, Sticky TV has an experienced team of producers, directors, writers, presenters, consultants and technical crew who make the show the popular 5 day a week show it is. The interactive website offers thousands of viewers a month the opportunity to drive the content of the show. A questionnaire is devised so that the producers can hear the youth audience's preferences and ideas, giving them a voice to drive the show forward.
Every programme from Pickled Possum Productions focuses on the 3 main languages of Aotearoa, and consultants work with presenters to make this a seamless integration. For the first time on mainstream TV, sign language is being integrated into the animation shows.
