We’re really pleased to announce a partnership between ourselves and Jellyfish Pictures, to bring brand new children’s animation Stan & Gran to life.
Stan & Gran is based on an original concept by Jollywise MD Jon Mason, following unlikely hero Stan and his musclebound grandmother – not to mention LARA, Stan’s trusty AI-powered binoculars – on adventures and mishaps around their coastal hometown. Jollywise and Jellyfish have joined forces to transform Stan into 3D animation, with Jellyfish as the main production and distribution partner.
"We're delighted to be partnering with Jollywise on this fantastic new adventure series for pre-schoolers. The talent and creative vision behind the show is second-to-none - we can't wait for out award winning creative and animation team to bring this highly original series to life!" - Phil Dobree, Jellyfish Pictures CEO
The concept is accompanied by stunning illustration and design work from in-house illustrator/artist extraordinaire Daz Butcher.
“I spent a lot of time my gran as a kid,” says Jon Mason, who will remain at the creative helm of the project, supplying a full digital strategy and brand extension plan. “She was fearless and amazing, and now my kids spend a lot of time with theirs. Stan & Gran is a love letter to that special relationship.”
Stan & Gran is set to be presented at Kidscreen Miami later this month, with 3D modelling, a complete bible, and a script composed by Myles McCleod and Evgenia Golubeva.
