Yukfoo Animation signs animation studio Dwarf

DWARF_STILL2.jpgYukfoo Animation has announced the signing of legendary Japanese animation studio Dwarf to its roster of directors.

Dwarf, creators of the iconic Domo and Komaneko characters, are renowned worldwide for their charming character design and stopmotion animation work. Launched in 2003 by Tsuneo Goda, Dwarf has gone on to become the go-to studio for original kawaii characters.
Says Alan Dickson, Yukfoo founder: "It's a privilege to be able to bring such a unique offering to this part of the world. Both Yukfoo and Dwarf love designing and creating both characters and character animation, and we feel that Dwarf's stunning work perfectly compliments our own here at Yukfoo. It's truly a match made in animation nirvana."

Besides working on campaigns for market leaders such as Nissan, Target and ToysRUs, Dwarf has also released children's TV series, short and feature films, online content, books and their own merchandise line (including some very huggable plushies). They have also recently completed the beautiful and touching 'By Your Side' film for Project Zapuni which supports the children of Japan affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.

Dwarf is represented in New Zealand and Australia by Yukfoo Animation. Please contact Alan or Amy at info@yukfoo.net.
