Animortal Studio is a purpose built animation studio for stop motion features, specifically ours. Animortal Studio rose from the ashes of an old speaker factory, in Bridgend, South Wales in the UK, initially with the purpose of producing the feature-length ‘Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires’.
In November 2014, the 24,000 sq/ft industrial complex undertook a rapid and fairly extreme transformation, as the Animortal crew set about planning out and creating their animation studio from the shell up.
With pre-production completed at an off-site location, and the shoot scheduled start looming, departments were swiftly set-up in order of requirement so as to enable the first production to get off the ground in the shortest possible time.
By January 2015, the Puppets Dept. and Art Dept. were both running at full steam as the first sets were being designed and built, and 27 animation stages began to fill in the vast open chasm of space that would become the Animortal Studio floor.
By the end of June 2015, puppets were ready, servers and networking were complete, and the first sets needed were dressed lit and ready to go, – Animortal Studio was ready to start shooting its first feature.

We are Animortal Studio, we hope you’re along for the ride.
