Studio

g

The studio is set up in Helsinki and Mikkeli, Finland. At the minute we’re about 10-15 people, combining end-to-end skills for animation production. We are able to go from original idea to delivery in-house. It takes a tightly knit team with overlapping skill sets, keeping production fun, flexible and efficient. That said, we also work with writers, artists, studios and game companies from around the world.  During 2017, we will be growing our pre-production and story artist teams.  Our studio is located close to a primary school and a kindergarten, who collaborate with us on informative research and testing.  We’re proud of having a unique environment for creating kids content - a friendly and silly place with people passionate about animation.

Productions

Everyone knows someone with a special laugh – and Gigglebug has one of the greatest laughs ever. It‘s his gift, his innate ability and the key to transforming attitudes, which ultimately shakes loose every gummed-up situation he runs across.  Gigglebug is a 360-degree brand which has been launched by successful apps in 2013. Whether it is Gigglebug TV-series, Gigglebug apps, Gigglebug books or Gigglebug music, we ask ourselves: Does this experience make kids smile? Is it character driven? What is the unique strength of this platform? By answering these questions, we give ourselves tools for creating a long lasting pre-school favourite. See more at consumer site: www.gigglebug.tv

Our next production

We are currently piloting a brand new animated comedy for 6-9 year olds.  It is looking outrageous, abominable and occasionally unstoppable. Hilarious characters and beautiful designs. We just can’t wait to spill our more news on this one!

Development slate

We have a number of new and exciting projects in development.  All the new brands carry our own flavour of silliness, positivity and purpose. We will be present at industry events sharing more details on these gems!
