We are thrilled that Revolting Rhymes has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Short Animated film category. It was a hugely exciting production and it's tremendous that our adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic book has been recognised by the Academy, having recently won a BAFTA award for animation at the Children's Awards, and a Crystal at Annecy among other awards. Directed by Jakob Schuh and Jan Lachauer, and co-directed by Bin-Han To, the film was animated at our Berlin studio and at Triggerfish Studios in Cape Town.

Meanwhile our latest film, The Highway Rat, premiered to acclaim on Christmas Day on BBC One; and we're delighted to announce that our latest production will be Zog for Christmas 2018.

Story. Character. Creation.

We love strong stories, witty invention and evergreen characters. Our film-making includes animated adaptations of The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child, Room on the Broom, Stick Man, The Highway Rat and Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes;  feature animation Chico & Rita, romantic comedy Wild Target and natural history documentary One Life.
