Under the aegis of its founder – writer-director and series creator Savin Yeatman-Eiffel – Sav! The World Productions has produced high-quality commercials, short films and TV series since 1998 with a tight network of regular artistic collaborators, including Head of Production, Yukiko Hirose – a specialist of animation and special effects – and Art Director Loic Penon. It is one of the very rare Western companies to have developed over the years a genuine production and co-production expertise with Japan.

STW currently develops new animated series, including a sequel and a spinoff of Oban Star-Racers, as well as feature films: the historical epic The 2 Queens, in collaboration with animation master Toshiyuki Inoue (Akira; Blood, the Last Vampire; Paprika), and the live-action adaptations of Gen Urobuchi’s cult Japanese video game Saya No Uta and of Argentinean playwright Claudio Tolcachir’s award winning play The omission of the Coleman family.

Previous productions of STW include the award winning hit series Oban Star-Racers (26 half-hours), which aired successfully in more than 120 countries worldwide including ABC Family & Toon Disney (US), NHK BS2 & Disney Channel (Japan), France 3 (France), 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.

STW also produces 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.
