They are currently collaborating on projects with clients including Avalon, BBC Studios & Milkshake as well as developing their own slate of animated properties with studios all around the world. They were one of the first animation studios in the UK to receive funding from the BFI’s Young Audiences Content Fund for their stop motion pre-school series The Hearios, and in 2020 they were the only animation studio in the UK to be awarded single project development funding from Creative Europe for their first animated feature – Lugi – The Brodgar Boy.
