Beakus is a central-London animation studio creating unique series IP for children, lead by award-winning director and producer Steve Smith.
We launched two shows in 2017 – ‘Olobob Top’ (52 x 5-mins) which is nominated for Best Animated Pre-School Series at this years’ Kidscreen Awards, and is sold to 11 territories and counting; and ‘Yakka Dee!’ (20 x 5-mins) which is already greenlit for two further series.
‘Olobob Top’ encourages creative play for 2-5-year-olds through the adventures of three forest-dwelling characters and their friends, exploring shapes, colours and patterns. It epitomises our passion for great story, character, adventure and surprise!
We also animated the first series of CBeebies ‘Numtums’, but this year it’s all about a brand new 11-minute series project we’re developing and presenting to the world at Kidscreen 2018!
