What are we creating now?

Our studio's forte is comic and animation, the latter being our main focus right now.

The team
Although we do have some favourite collaborators/supporters, the studio director, Mar, takes the director role and gathers a team and support necessary to complete every project.

So, even if we use "we" through the entire website, people may vary. We just put together the most skilled and passionate at each step.

We do have feature film length stories in mind, but for now we are creating short stories in the format of Animated Music Videos. Do you want to see some good music with a nice story? Are you a musician or know someone in need of good quality visuals?

Then check our commissions page.

Mar is also the author of Windy Lightning comic, within the Believe in Fake Magic saga. The comic production has paused while we do animation, but we plan to continue this story in the future! This is NOT the end.

Studio Director

Hi! This is Mar.

After studying animation in Tokyo, I worked in a managerial marketing position while starting my own media company "Maru Exposito" on the side!

This year I just jumped part-time so I have more time to craft anime projects and share the adventure on YOUTUBE. You can expect videos where I deliver heartwarming messages and prove to myself and others you can be an artist in a demanding industry and enjoy life ;)

YouTube (animation, live streams, interviews)
LinkedIN (resume and articles about animation)

Instagram (real-life stories, motivational stories, illustration posts)
Facebook (a mix of all the above, unfrequent)

Patreon (support the studio and get exclusive treasures!)

To reach me directly, message me on any of the social media links above ;)

Studio values

1. All stories contain life-changing messages. Example: Trust in people's actions, not assumptions.

2. No use of filler content to prolong the story. Every scene leads to the best ending possible!

3. Stories don’t support gambling, smoking, drugs, homophobia, racism, or war.

4. We push into developing environmentally friendly creative processes. If we find a way to save the planet, we'll make it happen. 

5. High importance on publishing content that meets deadlines and set expectations.

Still a bit puzzled? Check more about our values in our Windy Lightning comic website.
