1973 Films is a UK-based production company founded by multiple Emmy and BAFTA honoured producer Tim Goodchild and director Louise Scott.

Hettie Makebelieve is a 52 x 7’ stop-motion animated series for 3 to 5 year-olds about a collection of toys who come to life and create amazing new worlds of adventure. 

The series will be produced in the UK by award winning stop-motion animation studio and model makers Mackinnon and Saunders whose work has contributed to Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Frankenweenie as well as TV series such as Bob the Builder, Postman Pat and The Clangers, among many more.

The project was also supported by Creative Europe during its production phase.

Tim Goodchild, Producer at 1973 Films, said:

"Creative Europe Desk UK gave us prompt and extremely helpful advice for both of our applications. The Creative Europe development grant has helped us to create new creative material and concept artwork, and has been a vital part of our strategy to convince broadcasters and other potential partners to support our project."
