Beakus is an independent animation production studio based in London. We create broadcast animation for clients such as CBeebies (‘Numtums’, 25 x 5-mins, 2012) and Nickelodeon, but also develop our own children’s series. We’re delighted to bring ‘Toggle’ to Kidscreen, a 2D animated series of 52 x 5-mins currently in development. With a pre-buy offer from CBeebies, UK tax relief, four-book publishing deal, and worldwide distributor on-board, we expect to be in production in mid-2014.
We have a full-length pilot episode voiced by Stephen Mangan (‘Episodes’, ‘Green Wing’), with music composed by Emmy-award-winning David Schweitzer (‘The Cat in the Hat’). The showrunner is Beakus’ experienced BAFTA-winning director/producer Steve Smith, and our co-creator is two times Roald Dahl Funny Prize nominated author-illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson. Steve would love to meet broadcast partners at Kidscreen who are looking for a strikingly original pre-school show about creativity, fun and friendship!
