Invention comes first at this studio, where individual talents combine to create extraordinary entertainment

Moonbot Studios began when friendships converged to form a place of outstanding individual talent. Partners Brandon Oldenburg, William Joyce and Lampton Enochs all had experience in different areas of the entertainment industry.

The three teamed up to tell the stories they wanted to in new and exciting ways, on their terms and with their friends. They did this while operating out of Louisiana, USA.

In fact, this shared passion for storytelling is essentially what continues to bind the latest team members together, now including art lead Joe Bluhm and artists Tyler Schatz and Christina Ellis.

As individuals and as a collective, they strive to present work in every available medium – even those yet to be fully realised commercially.

“It’s important to have every discipline covered by the best of the best, but a real passion for what we do is our team’s number one asset. It’s our major strength,” explains creative partner Oldenburg. Moonbot always keeps an eye out for exciting and innovative ways to deliver its projects.

“A great example is the way we’ve dabbled in augmented reality,” Oldenburg reveals. “Projects include the IMAG-N-O-TRON app for our Morris Lessmore picture book and the Diggs Nightcrawler videogame for the PlayStation Wonderbook.”
