Since 2010 StudioLumière produces the in-house animated content of Lunanime productions, but also operates as a servicing studio for other clients. The studio works with a team of experienced animators, directors, writers and producers who work closely together.
Recently Karolien Raeymaekers joined the studio’s staff as Head of Animation. She studied Animation Film at KASK Ghent, and graduated with flying colors. She is both animator and illustrator. Her graduation movie ‘Oma’ (2014) was nominated and awarded by many notable festivals. She also successfully supervised the preschool series ‘Ollie’.
Creative history of Lunanime and StudioLumière
Lunanime has been producing animated films since 2008. With an ever growing portfolio, the studio has a notable list of award winning shorts such as Bloeistraat 11 (Nienke Deutz), #21XOXO (Sine Özbilge), Mosaic (Imge Özbilge), Gloria (Iza Cracco), The Education (Klaartje Schrijvers), Jazzed (Anton Setola), The Tie (An Vrombaut), Rapsodie en Rose (Bram Mondy), Tank (Raoul Servais),…
Lunanime also coproduced several animated feature films, like ‘A Cat in Paris’, directed by Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, which was honoured with an Oscar nomination in the category ‘Best Animated Feature’ in 2012. In 2015 ‘Phantom Boy’ followed, a feature film from the same directors, produced by Folimage and mainly animated in StudioLumière. Since then the studio and Lunanime worked as an executive producer on several high standing projects such as Funan (Denis Do), Josep (Aurel), L’Operation Père Noël (Alain Gagnol), La Sirène (Sepideh Farsi) …
Lunanime is currently investing in the development of different strong own IP properties of which ‘Ollie’ was the very first title, as well as our very first own TV-series. In 2020, the studio and Lunanime proudly released this preschool TV-series created by Anton Setola and co-produced by Ink-and-Light and Storyline Studio. Besides a successful TV launch, Ollie has strong licensing potential. In 2021 the DVD, books, and merchandise will be published.
In the same spirit LumièreStudio and Lunanime will develop and create more amazing animations with strong storytelling and captivating characters in the future.
