Gumball: The Titles

On the happy occasion of the recent BAFTA-win of “The Amazing world of Gumball” we thought we’d share with you the show’s opening titles, codirected by show-creator Ben Bocquelet and Soi’s Jakob Schuh. Having been involved in many aspects of the production since its earliest days, we felt particularly honored to be entrusted with this special little ingredient to “The Amazing World of Gumball”.

A sidenote on our own behalf: Work on the second season of “Gumball” will be starting soon, a collaboration between Cartoon Network Europe and us. Studio Soi, Ludwigsburg is currently recruiting flash animators / inbetweeners, who would like to join our team for this. The work on inbetweens is scheduled to start beginning of January 2012 and will last until end of October 2012. If you are interested, please contact our producer Ursula Ulmi: ursulaulmi[at]

Gumball wins a BAFTA.

Above you see the amazing Ben Bocquelet, Joanna Beresford and Mic Graves proudly accepting their BAFTA for “The Amazing World of Gumball” this last weekend. All here at Soi congratulate the three and their wonderful team for their herculian efforts and all their success! Thanks for letting us contribute the wonders you’ve concocted, studio soi applaudes you.

“Princess’ Painting” is going places!

Our shortfilm “Princess’ Painting”, directed by Klaus Morschheuser and Johannes Weiland, is being shown from West to East and is getting wonderful feedback: In Ottawa it was awarded as the Best Short Animation Made for Children, at the Chicago Film Fest it received the 1st Prize for an animated Television Production and at the famous Krok festival the film was awared “For creation of a story with nonintrusive morale”. Congratulation to the filmmakers and a hearty Thank You to all three juries!
