Now in their 22nd year, Blue Zoo has grown to become one of the UK’s leading animation studios. With a passion for creating eye-catching and lovingly crafted character led animation, bursting with creativity and charm. From critically acclaimed short films and effective advertising campaigns through to much loved children’s TV favorites.
The studio has made it their mission to build a positive working environment, filled with talented, happy artists crafting content they are truly proud of, and with sustainability set firmly in their DNA, Blue Zoo became the first UK based animation studio to be awarded B-Corp certification, meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials.
As well as winning a host of animation awards, Blue Zoo has twice won the BAFTA for Independent Production Company of The Year and is a proud winner of the 2019 Best Places to Work in TV survey by Broadcast and Best Companies Group.
Blue Zoo works tirelessly to push the animation industry forward, having established AnimationUK in 2008, which went on to successfully campaign for the introduction of animation tax reliefs, for which co-founder Oli Hyatt received an MBE. The studio continues to work closely with ACCESS:VFX, ScreenSkills, NextGen Skills Academy, Animated Women and many festivals, universities, colleges and schools to ensure a thriving, inclusive future for the whole industry.
