Who we are

Studio Zmei is an animation and storytelling studio, created in 2015.

One of its main goals is to help develop the Bulgarian animation industry, by creating jobs on exciting international projects and also applying that experience to its own original IP.

The Studio was initially founded because of The Golden Apple project – the first animated series based on Bulgarian folklore.

In 2018, Studio Zmei began work on our first international collaboration – I, Elvis Riboldi – an animated series, co-produced between Spain and France, for which we created more than 90 minutes of animation. The show is aired in 130 territories worldwide on Cartoon Network and Disney Channel.

Since then, we have continued to grow and develop, producing animation for France, Russia and the US – some of which you can see in our gallery.

In 2021, Studio Zmei continues working on new exciting international animation projects, as well as several original productions and co-productions.
