About

Olu & FRIENDS

OLU & Friends is a new children’s cartoon series about an Alligator and his jubilant group of friends. Olu, literally means King. From the OLU & Friends series, children will learn from Olu and his friends, a fun, entertaining and engaging way to constantly carry themselves with pride and to show others compassion and kindness.

Olu & His STORY

Our main character Olu is a child alligator learning to carry himself with pride and dignity with the help of his mother and father. Throughout the show, Olu & Friends encounter numerous adventures and overcome a multitude of obstacles, all while learning to become Kings and Queens at heart.

Olu & YOU

Olu & Friends is about instilling in our young children’s impressionable minds that they all are Kings and Queens at heart, no matter what their situations and surroundings might be. Targeted at kids aged 3-8, it is not your typical educational children’s cartoon; it is one that can help to teach young kids the tools they need to build good character, encourage strength and develop courage.

Olu & ABROAD

The funds we intend to generate here on kickstarter will help us complete the final phase of the project which includes animation and post production.  If you are unable to donate through Kickstarter but still want to support Olu & Friends, our solution to this problem is to make a donation through PayPal (via inwaystudios@gmail.com). Dont worry, the incentives on our Kickstarter page will still apply! If you have questions, please contact us directly. THANK YOU! 

Risks and challenges

We've already done a lot of the work to bring Olu & Friends to your living room. Nonetheless, a project like this involves some risks. We believe that with our backgrounds and years of combined experience, we can do the work necessary to face whatever challenges come our way.

A few concerns that we may run into are technical difficulties with computer equipment, delays in the pipe line, or not being able to reach our goal. We have faced many obstacles throughout this entire process and have learned, just like Olu & his Friends, the best way to overcome a challenge is to plan, prepare, and execute. Olu & Friends is a great story that we are extremely excited for you to be apart of!
