We are a small team of enthusiastic Italian designers with a great passion for cartoon animation.

In the past we have worked with renowned authors such as Emanuele Luzzati (twice Oscar nominated for his animated shorts) and Guillermo Mordillo…

After the great experience of designing exhibitions and books with Quentin Blake, we came up with the idea of bringing the unique story of CLOWN to life through animation.
Yes! We are going to make a short film of CLOWN!!

Quentin thinks, “It’s a terrific idea!”
So we believe it is worth doing whatever we can to make it happen. Making a short film of such a wonderful book is an incredible challenge, but we are highly motivated and very enthusiastic about it.
It’s such an inspiring story, and thanks to the universal language of animation and music, we have the unique chance to reach out to children from ages 0 to 99 all around the world. And we are even more excited to have a mentor as generous, wise, and friendly as Quentin Blake.

Over the past few years we have been working really hard to put this unique project into motion, and now we are finally doing it.
As a small independent Italian design studio, we believed that financing it through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter would have been the best way to guarantee complete creative freedom and faithfulness to Quentin Blake’s original work.
Unfortunately, word did not spread as far as we would have liked and so we have not managed to get enough backers to reach our ultimate goal. We did receive, however, enthusiastic support and feedback from all around the world, and so we believe the project should go on with the same energy and commitment, regardless.
