FILM NATION: Animation. Yamination.

April has seen some exciting developments at Infinite Wisdom. Sequel talks with a major UK film company, casting talks across the pond and the launch of the iWISDOM NEWSLETTER, exclusive to our investor network.

We hope to be able to share more on these developments in the coming months but for now we’re bringing you someone else’s good news with a fantastic success story from the region.

Multi-award-winning stop-motion animators YAMINATION STUDIOS has won one of three awards from the ‘Ignition’ Futures Fund from SKY ARTS. Just like Infinite Wisdom, the Birmingham based animation house has its humble beginnings in the heart of the Black Country, in nearby Wolverhampton. Founded by talented animator DREW ROPER, the company’s name comes from a local colloquialism (‘Yam-Yam’) combined with his love of everything animated.

With bold ambitions and an intense love for AARDMAN, Infinite Wisdom thinks Yamination Studios and Drew Roper are definitely ones to watch. Keep your eyes peeled for their Sky Arts debut later in the year.
