Seekers

Producer: Submarine. Status: In Development. Kind: 3D Animated Feature and TV Series. Genre: Sci-Fi/Action/Adventure/Comedy

After years of being locked up in ‘Juvie’, these teens saw a way out, and took it with both hands / claws / weird alien stumpy things. And now they’re free, they’re determined to stay that way. Their masterplan? Break into the authorities’ HQ, and destroy their personal files! A clean slate!

Simple right? Yeah, good one.

They don’t know where HQ is! Its location is a secret…and could be anywhere in the Galaxy! Which is where their quest begins. And with the Juvie Guards hot on their heels, it’s anything but easy. But they soon realise that the challenge is way bigger than they ever imagined:

- The whole Galaxy is like one big prison! Split by a million-mile long FORCEFIELDS, almost impossible to break through.

- The authorities are total crooks! Gangster FAMILIES that control everything and everyone.

- And…they’re TEENS! Still figuring out not only how the world works, but themselves too!

Current Project: Documentary

Oasis: Saving the Baghdad Zoo

Producer: Submarine. In co-production with Sandpaper Films. Director: Roger Ross Williams. Kind: Feature Documentary. Status: In Development

Oasis is the unbelievable story of how, in the middle of the fiercest war the world had seen in years, a motley group of volunteers set about to save the animals in Baghdad Zoo, where lions and camels, bears, an ocelot, exotic birds, monkeys, pigs, a wolf, and other animals had been left alone without food, listless, confused, and hungry in the middle of a war. For the fearless men and women in our story, overnight the battle changed from fighting people to fighting for the lives of the zoo animals.
