In the new Swedish feature film Monky, a young boy finds a real live ape in his family’s backyard. The ape’s name is Monky and her arrival is the beginning of a fun and exciting adventure for the entire family. However, it does not take long before the family realises that she is no ordinary ape, and it was no coincidence that she showed up in their backyard…

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
