UNTITLED SPICE DAO ORIGINAL ANIMATED LIMITED SERIES
To fulfill the DAO’s mandate to produce an original animated limited series and sell it to a streaming service we needed content that we owned 100% of the rights of. We held a Writing Competition and acquired three sci-fi properties that could be developed into any media.

Hiring Titmouse will help us create professional animation industry-standard art including designs for characters, costumes, settings, environments, machines and other props.
