” I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Charactershop for many years. They have supported CITV and it’s brand ethos with passion and creativity from bewildering brief to demanding delivery.

Not least in the success of our BAFTA winning Share a Story competition. Always respectful of our ideas yet ready to offer original solutions when required.”

CITV

Award-winning animation for television

Our core team met at the BBC, so broadcast was naturally where CharacterShop started out. Since we opened the studio in 2002, we’ve won a collection of awards for our work for children’s television. In fact, CBeebies and CITV remain two of our biggest clients today. But we do much more than this.

Demand for video content is growing

There’s no doubt about it, we live in visual times. Consequently, more and more businesses are choosing animation as a way to connect with new audiences. As CharacterShop constantly diversifies, our portfolio and client list gets even more characterful.

Our animators create serious films that spark conversations. Our explainer videos communicate complicated concepts in entertaining ways. We apply the magic of our characters to reinvigorate brands. And for toy companies, our animated adventures capture the imaginations of young YouTube fans.

Show-stopping ideas for your production

For live entertainment, we bring niche expertise and ideas galore to the leisure industry. We can give a cartoon character a role in everything from a kids club to a glittering on-stage performance. And if you give us free reign, we’ll deliver a whole season worth of entertainment opportunities.
