About us

Power Animals United is a group of talented people with passion to create stories with meaning, heart – and a few giggles.

We are four owners—two sisters and their husbands brought together in love for each other and the work with do in kids and family media. We work with each other and independently with our clients and partners sharing our 360º experience and talents and vision for business, design, and stories with “heart”.

Areas of consulting & experience include licensing, co-productions & financing, concept development+bibles, writing, script doctoring, English casting + voice direction (from low-budgets to Hollywood celebrity talent), distribution (internationally and with strong bridges to Russia/CIS), internationalization and formats, and more recently around YouTube content and promotional strategies. Our strongest experience is in pre-school content, family feature films, education and gaming apps.

We have especially big desire to work more with nature and education.
