About

Founded in 2008, TROUBLEMAKERS is an animation studio and production company based in the heart of Paris. Our producers and directors are united by a common desire to challenge assumptions. To challenge the status quo, question each preconceived idea, question creative briefs again and again. We believe that it is by doing this that together we will be able to find the best possible ideas. Ideas that will be remembered in time. Ideas that transforms behaviour and gives rise to honest and truthful films.

In recent years we have produced numerous award winning 2D and 3D animated campaigns for clients such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Orange, WWF, CCTV and Amnesty International. This experience has encouraged us to develop longer formats. We are currently in development on several animated series.
