Lupus Films is a London based production company set up in 2002 by Camilla Deakin and Ruth Fielding to produce high quality films and TV series for children and families.
They specialise in animation, using a wide range of techniques from traditional hand-drawn to 2D digital and CGI, and also produce live-action drama and factual entertainment. Lupus Films’ productions have been shown in the UK on the BBC, Channel 4, Five, ITV, S4C, Disney and Cartoon Network and in over 150 territories worldwide.
In 2013 Lupus Films received a prestigious Vision Award from the BFI. The company’s first feature film developed as a result, Ethel & Ernest, had its premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, followed by a UK-wide cinema release in October 2016 and transmission on BBC One in December.
Lupus Films have recently completed a second season of successful pre-school show The Hive (78 x 7′) for Disney Junior and the MEDIA-supported animated half-hour special based on best-selling children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt for Channel 4. Transmitted on Christmas Eve, with a repeat on Christmas Day, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt was Channel 4’s most viewed programme in 2016, across all genres, making it the highest rated since their last special The Snowman and The Snowdog in 2012.
