Elias the little rescue boat
The beloved Elias has got a 20-year history of multiple TV and film productions, and has aired in more than 120 countries around the world. Elias the Little Rescue Boat is aimed at 3-7 year olds and introduces us to a heroic team of rescue workers whose lives are dedicated to making the ocean a safe and happy place.
Since 2018 Elias is fully dedicated on solving the major problems his community faces from increasing marine pollution and the severe effects of climate change. Elias has taken on the challenge and has decided to make a change. He wants to educate children all over the world about ocean health, the solutions and how each one of us can contribute.

TIMES ARE CHANGING
The Music Factory
The Music Factory is a fantasy theatrical experience unlike anything seen on the musical scene, including a live symphony orchestra, dancers and interactive animation. It premiered with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra in Norway on 27 October 2017, and is now scheduled for tour in China early 2021.
The Music Factory is available for all orchestras and festivals with a desire to reach young audiences in innovative ways. The performance is based on the very best of our classical repertoire, includes newly written music, and is driven by fun references to modern day communication technology and children's culture.
Painting Stories is an educational animation series in development. It is based on the interaction between a drawn character visiting different museums, and the paintings within those museums, making short humorous stories introducing several of the painter's works.
The purpose is to amuse and surprise the children, and hopefully make them recognise the paintings when they see them again. We also hope to see them using their imagination, and create stories and images around what they see. One child said while looking at a white monochromatic picture: this is a slope up in the mountains just before a man slides across the canvas on his skis.
Animando is a production company started by Alf Knutsen and Sigurd Slåttebrekk. Its first IP creation was Elias that is distributed to more than 120 countries. We like to tell stories that are humourous, with a keen eye on high quality animation production. Our focus is to create more non-violent children's content, moving towards environmental awareness. In addition, Animando manages the licensing of all its productions and merchandise.
