Creative Director

Sixteen South Studios

Sixteen South is focussed on the creation and production of the highest quality television with heart for kids in every country across the world.  Our shows are among the highest rating on all the major television networks and SVODs - you can see our work on Disney, PBS, Hulu, Nickelodeon and on public broadcasters in most countries across the world.

We create and produce quality content with heart for children all over the world.

We believe in the power of story to entertain, amaze and to influence the next generation and we take our responsibility of storytellers to children very seriously knowing that our stories are seen by uncountable numbers of kids across the world.

We want our work to be watched by every child in every home in every country.

We believe in creating the highest quality work in every aspect and work in all mediums - 2D and 3D animation, puppetry and live action. Everything that we do has a tangible and handmade feel because we like the audience to see our fingerprints in our work. We never cut corners and we refuse to compromise.

We Believe In The Power Of Good

We know that television is a strong influential force on children. We tell stories of hope because we have proven that positive stories can change attitudes and young lives for the better.

We believe in the influence of positive characters in children’s television and we create endearing characters who are strong female leads and great boy role models. We believe in diversity and that all children everywhere should be able to see and hear themselves 0n screen - when children watch our shows, we want them to feel like they’re looking into a mirror.

We produce shows that reinforce the fact that everyone is equal, everyone has value and everyone is important. We will not get involved in shows that encourage anarchy, violence or any kind of inequality.

We’ve won over 50 international awards for our work including two EMMY® nominations, the BAFTA Independent Children’s Production Company of the Year, the Prix Jeunesse, three IFTAs and a host of other awards for our work and business achievements.  We are wholly owned and independent.

Our shows include Lily's Driftwood Bay, WildWoods, Claude, Pinkalicious and Peteriffic, Sesame Tree, Big and Small, Pajanimals and Odo.
