At Just Anim8 our passion is storytelling. Just Anim8 is a new animation production studio and workshops provider currently developing quirky, vibrant and engaging animated stories for younger viewers. As a social enterprise, we give back to local communities by doing school outreach programmes using animation to develop schoolchildren’s storytelling skills. We currently have two animated TV shows in early development: ‘Flo’s World’ and ‘Stella Steam’.
‘Flo’s World’ is an 11-minute series aimed at 4 – 7 year olds, and is about the wacky adventures of two friends; Flo, a feisty, inquisitive schoolgirl, and Winston, a grouchy, grumbling seashell, as they hop between the real world and the weird and wonderful Flo’s World. They encounter naughty dinosaurs, giant marbles, pirate-parrots, shape-shifting Afro hair, and coconuts who want to make their own TV ad about chocolate, all the while making sure they hop back home in time for school!
‘Stella Steam’ is a 30-minute series aimed at 8 – 12 year olds, focussing on Stella, a 14 year-old inventor who lives in a world crying out for marvellous inventions. Stella’s abilities catch the attention of a host of characters, and she must use all of her skills to outwit those who would use them for nefarious purposes. The series not only sets out to fascinate children with action, fantasy and fun inventions, but also to challenge gender stereotypes, promote self confidence and problem-solving, and foster interest in the STEAM subjects (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and how they work together.
