Pasadena, California – From feature films to applications, the team at Duncan Studio continues to provide high-quality animation while also expanding into new ventures. In late 2012, the studio successfully launched its first iPad app, My Beastly ABCs, while also working on projects such as Despicable Me Minion Mayhem (Universal Studios) and Barneys New York: Electric Holiday (Disney). As the company continues its work in the animation industry at large, the talented team at Duncan Studio is busy planning its next app production, which they hope will reach even more animation fans.
Established in 2007, Duncan Studio is the realization of Ken Duncan’s vision of having his own animation studio. With a focus on outstanding character performances, projects animated by Duncan Studio have earned a 2011 Annie Award for Best Animated Special Production, a nomination for the 2012 Annie Award for Best Animated Special Production (winner to be announced February 3rd), a 2012 THEA Award for Ingenious Use of Technology, and a 2010 VES Award for Outstanding Animation in an Animated Motion Picture.
With the release of My Beastly ABCs in December, Duncan Studio was able to reach a new audience by providing families worldwide with an interactive storybook app that contains captivating animation and striking artwork. The app has received glowing reviews from around the world and USA Today named it one of 2012’s top ten apps for children.
The positive reaction is very rewarding for owner Ken Duncan. “We’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of great projects but the overwhelmingly positive reaction people are having to My Beastly ABCs is a thrill. We have other apps in development, and this reaction makes us even more eager to put them in the public’s hands.”
