About

Co-Founded by David Calcano and Linda Otero, both Venezuelan immigrants with a big dream, their vision for the studio was simple:

Create timeless stories that become a meaningful part of people’s lives.

Fantoons is able to deliver inspiring cross-media content throughout the globe, always creating a story in-tune with the audience’s heartbeat and obtaining results beyond our client’s expectations. The studio is proud to work with Universal, Warner, Westbrook, Publicis, Disney, Nestlé, as well as artists like Rush, Iron Maiden, The Beach Boys, Frank Zappa, WAR and many more.

The studio gathered some of the best talent in the industry to craft diverse stories built around a fresh point of view that keeps surprising viewers from every corner of the earth. But Fantoons doesn’t stop there, their design discipline is integrated throughout every production stage: characters, colors, art and movement follow a shape language in-line with story, brand and visual appeal of everyone of their stories.

After creating dozens of books, music videos, documentaries and commercials, the studio’s workflow evolved into a distributed imagination factory where story development drives the entire production. The studio treats every piece with an immeasurable passion that fills every frame with excitement and color.

Every story is treated like its own animated world, with a unique style befitting the theme. Artists and crew work together in-tune with the project’s artistic themes, following our unique production methodology.

Fantoons creative have received acclaim from Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Univision, CNN, Sirius XM, PROG Magazine, and other notable press outlets. As well as, multiple awards including a Webby for Rush’s “The Spirit of Radio” music video.

“This studio started out of the love of animation and music. Every brushstroke is geared to bring stories to life that celebrate diverse walks of life with relatable, and unique points of view. We continue to expand our reach towards brands, streamers, TV networks, gaming publishers and beyond” —David Calcano
