Arcanamation is a full-scale animation studio with the creative and production capabilities to create high-quality branded entertainment with a focus on original content. Their feature-length computer-generated films transcend age, gender and cultural boundaries, delivering new characters, immersive storyworlds and compelling stories to a global audience.

Using the newest technologies available as well as a streamlined production process that we control every step of the way, Arcanamation is able to provide an excellent product at a price that other companies simply cannot produce.  Developing and owning the story (intellectual property) and then producing the content without rights fees, additional producing fees, legal fees or even business affairs helps to lower the cost of production by as much as 40%.  Since we are also producing our story that we have developed since day one, the production process continues to stretch each dollar in production value allowing for an even better quality.

Arcanamation is a newly formed company that will oversee the production of each animated feature film.  Each feature film is housed within an incorporated company for labor tax credits, investment opportunities and for liability.  Arcanamation will be a hands-on production company for each of the films in the slate, providing management, guidance, equipment and facilities.

Arcana seeks to be a leader in producing animated features, and entertainment content, for all platforms including film, television, direct-to-home and digital media, based on comic book characters, providing new merchandising vehicles across all retail product lines. By combining our commercialization strategy with our extensive storytelling, packaging, and corporate management abilities, we seek to build a strategically diversified and profitable character-based entertainment business.

Arcana wants to ‘rinse and repeat’ the success of Pixies with the best of the best from their 250 properties by creating animated feature films that are built at a budget to be a smart and recoupable financial investment.

Arcana has the experience of animated production, a top notch team to execute a plan and is a Canadian company that receives tax credit benefits for content production as well as research and development.
