That's the business version. The simpler version is that we develop and produce animated Feature Films, TV-Series and On-Demand Content for children of all ages. And we have had a great time doing it ever since 2002, when the company was founded.

 

 

Magnus Jansson
Chief Executive Officer

Starting out nothing more than a Named Spawn, Magnus felt the tap of destiny but, alas, it turned out only to be a friend playing a prank. Devastated, he soon found himself on the streets of suburban Sweden and in a dog-eat-dog world. Luckily, it was only a day-trip, but the experience would come to change him forever.

He wanted to do something with his life. Something good. So he started the punk-rock band Stoned together with his friends and whirlwind adventure was underway. Five albums and several tours around the world later, the band hung up their instruments. It had been a fun ride, but they never really got all that groupie-action that they had been led to believe would magically manifest.

Today, Magnus is an award-winning writer-director at Assorted Nuts Animation Studios. His work on the online phenomenon "The Goob" earned him and his team the 2010 Streamy Award for ”Best Animation in a Web-Series”. A complete transmedia project - The Goob became a mobile hit in 2008 with Sony Ericsson, getting over five million mobile downloads in the first year, is an EMI Music recording artist, and the world's first animated video-blogger.

Magnus also likes writing bios about himself in the third person. One of his favorites pastimes, really.

Also known as Mister Estimator or Easy-Budget-Guy, on account of being able to budget anything in under 5 minutes, be it a simple modeling job or a multi-million dollar production.

With a degree in Media and Communications and a history as a musician and as a journalist as well, Erik wanted a new challenge. With his experience, he jumped on the chance to head up Assorted Nuts’ business as Chief Financial Officer.

After ten years, he is starting to get the hang of cash-flows and them other “documents with numbers in ‘em”. While juggling numbers with his left hand, Erik is, as all members of the studio, involved in the creative and producing aspects of the productions as well.
