For us, Panita means a dedication to great storytelling, on-budget productions and the ability to work seamlessly with global partners. Our mission is to find unique artistry, work with talent to develop their animated or live-action properties and get them up and running as international co-productions.
Oh, and to drink coffee, eat pastries and have fun! (Okay, maybe not so many pastries…)
“Gears vs. Spooks” is a 52x11 animated action/comedy for kids. Our heroes, Black Piper and Stanley Steam are on a mission to save their world from destruction. It’s a big job for two teens, but they’ve got the skills, the heart and some unique superpowers to master their adventure.
