We are world class animation specialists. A collective of sublimely talented directors, producers, artists and technicians who create short-form content with our partners in the advertising, music and entertainment industries.
We love blending innovative new technology with classical cinematic craft, always focussing on the fundamentals of character, storytelling and emotion.
Our mission, is to make films that move people. Be it a chuckle, a tear, a wry smile, or just a little queasy. In each and every project we endeavour to undertake something new, something different, something unique. A contribution to culture, no matter how modest.
BAFTA winning directors Mikey Please and Dan Ojari make up Parabella. Specialising in tactile, intricately crafted animation, they create work that feels both cutting edge and handmade. Masters of building incredibly atmospheric landscapes for their characters to inhabit, their work has a magical, toy box quality that is uniquely their own.
