About Us

Animation Company Director smiling in front of wall full of cartoons

Meet our director: Martyn Niman

My love for animation was sparked by watching classic Disney movies during my childhood and then discovering the Simpsons in my teenage years. I could really see myself and my family in the characters - I just fell in love with the medium and knew I wanted to make my own cartoons and tell stories. Over the years we have built up a strong track record of high quality animated content with stylistic originality and a brave vision for unique stories.

This was the second time we have used with King Bee for design and production work. The project was long and complex. They got the job done. They are a true joy to work with, real pros! I look forward to our next venture.

In 2017 we nominated King Bee Studio to create our 2D animated Music Video. We are extremely happy and proud with the final result! The final outcome is extremely professional and perfectly matches with the vision we described in our brief. Moreover, it was a real pleasure working with King Bee team. Along the whole process King Bee team demonstrated: a very pro-active approach, strong attention to details, high flexibility and an extremley friendly and positive attitude.
