About The Animation Chefs

We are four brothers who's mission it is to make a dent in the media-making universe.

Think of us as a blend of Bob RossTim Burton/Ray Harryhausen, and the Swedish Chef.

We have produced our own webshow about animation since 2009. We have had the opportunity to teach thousands of kids the joys of stop motion filmmaking on three continents. Animating Kids is currently used in over 500 sites in 12 countries and 16 states in the USA. 

With our experience and generous support from our crowd-funding supporters we have been able to spend the past three years developing...
