Jellyfish Pictures at 20 – Come Celebrate with Us

It’s Jellyfish Pictures’ 20th Birthday. The event of the year, you might say. The last 20 years has seen Jellyfish Pictures take the animation and VFX industry by storm. What started out as a three man-band in 2001, has now become a globally recognised studio with multiple critically acclaimed awards, a global roster of talent, a pioneering technology infrastructure and a state of the art facility.

Since we are voyaging into a new decade of operation, we are spending the year looking back at our journey and ahead to the future with celebrations taking place across the whole year.

What you can expect to see over the course of the year:

Each month you will be hearing from Phil Dobree, Founder and CEO on his musings as he reminisces on his Jellyfish journey, the things he’s learned and his most memorable times. Below is the first of many, with Phil looking back over the milestone projects from the last 20 years.


It’s been a privilege to work on all the projects that have made their way into our studio, but there are some that have changed and shaped the company forever. Each month we’re going to take a look back at the shows that shaped Jellyfish and talk to the crew, who let us in on some behind the scenes titbits and secrets.

As well as looking back at projects, we are going to hear from a whole host of talent, walking down memory lane and reminiscing about their best times had as part of the Jellyfish family, with some tips and tricks thrown in for budding artists.

As much a culture and creativity runs through our veins, technology is deeply ingrained in our DNA. Keep your eyes peeled for our technology video series with CTO, Jeremy Smith and our technology partners that have made us the powerhouse we are today. Prepare to hear a lot about the cloud, virtual technologies and how to become an agile forward thinking studio.

We’ll also be hosting a series of live events each month, dedicated to specific topic, from tech to recruitment, to entrepreneurialism to creating your own original content, we’ll have it all. These events are limited to 50 tickets so make sure you keep an eye out on our social channels not to miss the invite.

And that’s not all! We will have a load of written journal pieces, including thought leadership pieces, interviews with clients and friends of Jellyfish, a nod to our associations, a walk down memory lane with our talent, and the films that inspired our talent to enter the industry.

We will be sharing everything on our social media, so be sure to follow us to not miss out on any of these events and insider pieces. While you wait for our next bit of Jellyfish at 20 content – why not take a look at our Birthday reel below celebrating the last 20 years.
