SANAM is a new Dublin-based production company that creates enriching and exciting content for young children. We are dedicated to making content and building brands that will promote positive mental health and make a difference in children’s lives. At SANAM, we know that the best way to connect with kids – is to make them smile.
The name SANAM is derived from two Irish sayings, San Am (in the moment) and SAnam (of the
soul). We know how to combine wellbeing-practices with children’s media – without losing any fun!
Our ethos is simple: Enrich, excite and make them laugh!
With the support of Screen Ireland, we are currently developing our first CG animated TV series.

adventure to bring simple mental health practices to children. www.buddybugzz.com
