Strange Beast is a full-service animation production studio based in London. Our work is led by our talented roster of directors, each bringing their own unique style and distinctive tone of voice.

We are proud to be part of the PASSION group – an independent production company formed in 1987.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are a studio that prides itself on making a safe, supportive space in which individuals can thrive in all areas of animation production. 

Since 2016, we have held a gender-balanced roster of directors & crew across our projects. In this spirit of inclusivity, we are committed to fostering better representation & support for BAME creatives within our studio and the wider animation community.

As part of this commitment, we are expanding our network of BAME talent to build a more inclusive work environment with diversity playing a more integrated role in our recruitment process at all levels.

​To provide more opportunities in underrepresented backgrounds and  communities, our directors & producers will create pathways, through mentoring, portfolio reviews and careers advice, into animation and the creative industries.

If we aren’t able to meet our own standards for diversity in our studio, we will examine the reasons and remedy them as part of our longer-term discussions and take extra steps to bring BAME creatives into our studio and our work.

Part of this ongoing commitment is to continuously learn, listen, adapt and ultimately improve as a company.
