After first specializing in TV series and short formats, STW currently develops feature films, animated projects as well as "live action" ones. Among these: the historical adventure saga The 2 Queens for which STW put together a team of top European and Japanese artists helmed by animation master Toshiyuki Inoue (Akira; Blood, the Last Vampire; Paprika; Giovanni's Island), and a horror film based on a cult Japanese video game.
Previous productions of STW include the award winning hit series Oban Star-Racers (26 half-hours), which aired successfully
in more than 100 countries worldwide including ABC Family & Toon Disney (US),
NHK BS2 (Japan), France 3 (Fr.), Super RTL (Germany), GMTV (UK), RAI2 (Italy)
and Jetix/Disney XD; won an Animeland Award and a Polymanga Award; and was nominated at the BAFTA Awards.
The result of a long development process and two and
a half years of intensive production in Tokyo and Paris,
Oban Star-Racers sets itself apart from other series
by the quality of its 2D/3D animation and its attention
to detail – carefully crafted designs, rich characters
and story – which are similar to those usually
found only in feature films.
Oban also marks a unique artistic collaboration between
Japan and Europe. STW’s artistic team have lived
and worked in Tokyo for more than 2 years, in perfect
osmosis with their Japanese partners.
STW also produced short films such as the award-winning Oban
Star-Racers pilot film: Molly, Star-Racer (winner of
a LEAF AWARD, nominated for Best Editing at the Imagina
Awards) or the animated short film Squat, selected
at more than 20 major international festivals (Annecy, Anima
Mundi, NYUFR, VIFVF etc.)
Outside of its own creations, STW produces for various clients (such as Publicis/Nestlé in Asia) concept designs and animated TV commercials.
