About
People Moving Pixels

People Moving Pixels was established in 2017 by Director and Oscar nominee Stefan Fjeldmark and Producer Linni Rita Gad.

PMP brings stories to visual life. Both 3D and 2D animation.

PMP was founded with the purpose of creating a work space for talents within the industry, some already established and others who could grow with us.

Making great stories is hard work - but fun too. And this is what we do at PMP. We have high ambitions. We expect a lot from ourselves and all employees, but we also offer a rare opportunity of being part of a very talented team and creating a very high standard content for TV series - that we are all proud of being part off.

People Moving Pixels launched with the production of 52 episodes of Talking Tom and Friends Season 4 & 5 . But that’s just the beginning - More projects will come.
