Johnny Depp Officially Opened the Branch of Iervolino Studios in Belgrade
Serbia now has its first animated series entitled “Puffins Impossible”. The series, produced in Serbia, was created by the local Iervolino Studios and produced by Archangel Digital Studios with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia. On Tuesday 19 of October 2021, we celebrated our first year of operation with a full day of promotionally activity for “Puffins Impossible” with legendary special guest Johnny Depp, who voices the main role of Johnny Puff in the new series.
Legendary star Johnny Depp officially opened our studio in Belgrade. Thanks to Andrea Iervolino, CEO and founder, and Lady Monica Bacardi, honorary president of Iervolino Studios and Iervolino&Lady Bacardi Entertainment, we couldn’t have been more excited to have the star of so many of the movies we grew up with and the character we have been drawing and animating for the past year in our offices. Miloš Biković, owner of Archangel Digital Studio who persuaded Andrea to open the studio in Serbia, was also there for the celebration.
On this occasion, Johnny was able to see where his character Johnny Puff was drawn, animated and edited for the new series “Puffins Impossible.” He talked to the artists and employees in the studio; visited all sectors and addressed the colleagues in the studio in Novi Sad via zoom.
The studio in Belgrade was officially opened with the signing of the Johnny Puff figurine, which was specially created for this occasion by our famous animator Stevica Živkov, who now has the scarf that Depp was wearing during the studio visit.
Johnny left us with the message that everything we do and draw, should bring a smile to our faces every day. His admiration for our work motivates us all to continue to create even greater stories for the young and young at heart.
