We are funded ! 

THANK YOU so much this is amazing.

But we can’t stop yet.

The initial 10,000€ was the minimum we needed to make this trailer a reality.

To improve the quality of our trailer with better audio, better image and animation movement we need more funding.

By pledging today you will help us deliver the absolute best version of our teaser and MAYBE, we might even be able to produce the pilot.

So please, make a pledge today !

Absolutely Fabulous meets Family Guy. 

Studio R is an animated series that evolves around the misadventures of Romy, a young eccentric stylist and champagne addict reminding us of a young Patsy Stone from the AbFab series. 

Each episode describes the absurd and challenging obstacles the studio faces while preparing the new collection of the brand from day one to the final show. 

The 13 x 13 mn episodes uncover, through the elaboration of the collection for the season’s finale fashion show, the stories and different aspects of the characters’ personality. 

 Studio R is a comedy about fashion in Paris, but mostly it tells the story of a united, unique and neurotic family. 

I’m Nour Bramly, creator and co-writer of Studio R. Ludivine Camus is my co-writer, we met when I moved from Rio de Janeiro to Paris as a teenager and have been friends since then. I worked for over a decade for Marc Jacobs in Paris, as his studio coordinator.

The idea for the show came to me during my years inside the studio in Paris and behind the scenes of our fashion shows. I started collecting anecdotes and making a photo album with polaroids of our production team in the most random situations.

Last year, I shared my idea of making it all into a cartoon so Ludi became co-writer adding her share of silly adventures and Studio R was born.

Allan Sieber joined the team as our cartoonist, giving a face to our adorable, well not so adorable but amazing characters. He is based in Rio de Janeiro, and has worked for over 20 years as a cartoonist, animation creator and artist.

Now, are you ready? Take a peek at our storyboard for the animated trailer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The episodes evolve with the pace of a music video, the thoughts of the characters being illustrated by various references, the images are fast, the dialogs are often cut by movies, commercials or music videos. 

Romy:  

Tall and skinny, with endless legs, her hair color varies from one episode to another and according to her mood. Romy is very short sighted, her face is hidden behind dark thick glasses, her body full of bruises. She is the typical cool Parisian girl, but born in Brazil, always threatening to move there during her many personal crisis. 

 Romy is the stylist of the Studio R, she is a mess, she chain smokes, shows up drunk at work, where Benjamin her assistant and oldest friend rescues her every morning, greeting her with her famous special wake up kit. This kit includes: toothbrushes, champagne, pizza, vitamins, etc... all swallowed at once in a big gulp, ending with a giant burp. 

Rod: 

Romy’s twin, also tall, skinny and with endless legs, Rod has black scruffy hair and as the rest of the family, he also needs giant glasses. Rod is covered in tattoos, he wears black tight jumpsuits and carries an axe. He shouts “Porra!” (Brazilian slang) whenever he faces a problem, without having a clue of its meaning. While Romy beeps when she curses, “Porra” is always subtitled with absurd different words. Unlike his sister, Rod fears going back to Brazil. 

 Rod is the research and image coordinator of the Studio, he is a geek and a loner who spends most of his time behind his screen, away from the real world. He loves his cats more than anything in the world. 

 Shakirat: 

 Shakirat is a mouse, but everyone thinks she is a rat because of her name. She mostly hangs out undressed but is obsessed with wedding gowns. She dreams of being a ballerina, and seems very cute despite a naughty personality. 

 Extremely self-centered, she hates to be mistaken for a rat, finds herself very special, loves to party and is a total nymphomaniac as well as a severe alcoholic. Shakirat is Romy’s best friend and has been secretly in love with Ben, the assistant, since kinder garden. 

She claims to be the R’s muse, but in fact only brings chaos to their lives. 

R:  

Aka Robert, is a tall elegant man, he wears only white but for a colored scarf. His face is also half hidden by the family’s trade mark heavy dark glasses. Robert is disconnected from reality, living in his own world, he is the essence of an artist, sometimes making him forget about the existence of his entourage. 

His thoughts are depicted by long out of space scenes. He is very enthusiastic and optimistic, and despite being mostly distracted he remains the boss. R is a monomaniac designing the same collection over and over.

You now have the chance of helping us bring to life a super awesome animated series by funding our teaser! Yay!

As you may know, animation is very expensive, so the idea here is to produce a 90 sec teaser in order to convince a network to develop and make a permanent spot for us.

It is very difficult to sell a cartoon without at least a small feature to give the viewers a glimpse at our live visual indentity.

If we exceed our goal, well, AWESOME ! We will have better quality and maybe be able to create a half or full episode of Studio R mad adventures.

Thank you so much for reading us, and helping our dream come true.

Risks and challenges

Our campaign will last for 30 days, if we reach our estimated goal, we will immediately start producing our teaser which will take an estimate 60 day time.

We will be sharing updates and progress with our supporters on this page.

Combined with our creativity and enthusiasm, your funding will provide us with prototypes for the charaters, background development, audio and music creation and of course an animated trailer.

By raising our €10k goal we will be able to launch this surreal cartoon and introduce Romy and Shakirat to the world.

I assure you, they are very excited and so are we.
