The pair have ambitious plans tailored towards children’s and family entertainment, and they are already working on their first pre-school CG animation targeting 4-7-year-olds, which is a co-creation with the king of kids’ television, Keith Chapman (Paw Patrol, Bob the Builder, Fifi and the Flowertots).

Tim Harper (Raa Raa the Noisy Lion, Andy Pandy, Roary the Racing Car) is on board to direct the company’s first 52 x 11′ series, which will be available for broadcasters to see at Mipcom, along with other shows already in development.

Kim Goody and Alan Coates have been working together for over 25 years and have built a strong reputation in the industry based on professional service, innovation and creativity. Their experience and attention to detail has won them many awards including Broadcast Awards, The London International Awards, Kinsale Shark Advertising Awards and The Conch Awards. They have also worked on over 100 popular film and television shows including Moshi Monsters: The Movie, Postman Pat and Little Charley Bear.

Together, they bring a wealth of broadcast and music experience to the company. Kim began her career as a star in children’s television shows, Play Away, Freetime and Number 73. She has performed in television dramas such as The Saint, The Bill and The Professionals, and presented ‘After the News’ with Fern Britton and Paul Ross.

Kim said: “Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to work alongside some of the best talent in the entertainment industry. Not only can Alan and I bring our joint knowledge and experiences of writing, sound, picture, music and production to the table, but we are proud to be working with such a credible and creative team including Keith Chapman, Tim Harper, and our own expert engineers at Soho Square Studios.”

Alan added: “We have been involved with production throughout our respective careers. As creatives, it seemed more and more obvious that we had a lot to offer and to retain some ownership of what we have always done, which is to create good ideas. Keith Chapman and Tim Harper never ceased to thrill and impress us with their work, and we are excited about bringing together such an outstanding team of industry greats with amazing vision and expertise.

“Throughout our 25 years of professional life together, Kim and I have built one of the finest Audio Post Production houses in London. In 2007, we rebranded due to our fantastic new location, and built six new Audio Post Production studios in Soho Square. We are extremely excited that another chapter and a new arm of Soho Square Studios is being born. Soho Square Productions is definitely one to look out for this Mipcom.”
