About Us

Plug-in Media is a x5 BAFTA winning production studio with a reputation for producing work of the highest quality. We make games and animation for an enviable international client list consisting of the biggest names in children’s entertainment both across the UK and in the USA. Our busy studio has a positive and cheerful atmosphere. Everyone works hard, but we like to have fun whilst we’re doing it. We’re not saving lives, we’re just making the best children’s media in the world - and there’s no point in being too serious about that!   

Blue Zoo is a leading animation studio in the UK, with a world-class reputation as the go-to place for creating bold, fun and characterful animation. Established in London in 2000, the studio has grown to become the largest dedicated CG animation studio in the UK, picking up a shelf full of BAFTAs along the way. 

Both studios are coming together to launch an exciting new animation hub for the South of England, based in Brighton, and production begins this summer on a 2D animated pre-school action comedy series, with other projects waiting in the pipeline. Production will operate under a new hybrid model that combines both remote and in-studio working. We are committed to creating and nurturing an inclusive studio that promotes and values diversity and invites everyone to ‘bring their whole selves’ to work. We believe that companies that truly embrace and value diversity, and create an environment where everyone from any background can do their best work, are better companies.  Furthermore, we believe that a healthy balance in our lives - whatever our situation - is key to supporting the wellbeing of our staff. We offer flexible working to support this.

Fundamentally we want to build a studio that is full of amazingly talented, happy staff, making work they are proud of, which in turn makes a small contribution to a happier world.
