Janimation, Inc. is a production studio based in Dallas, Texas. It was co-founded in 1993 by CEO and Chief Creative Director, Stephen Gaconnier. The company is largely known for its work on Animation and Visual effects. Notably Cinematics for video games.
Steve Gaconnier and Jana Oleksinski co-founded Janimation in 1993. Throughout the late 1990s, Janimation received press for work done on animation in commercials for Universal Studios Florida. In 1998 Janimation produced its first HD cartoon short film, titled Life, which was directed by Steve Gaconnier.
In 2000, Gaconnier became the sole owner of Janimation by purchasing Oleksinski’s stake in the company.
For Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, Janimation’s work on the movie’s sea monster represented the company’s first contribution to a feature film. The sea monster artwork was featured on the cover of both Production Reality and Post magazines and appeared in Avid’s Softimage advertising at that time. The movie critic, Roger Ebert, gave his opinions on the special effects of the sea monster in his review of the movie.
In 2008, Janimation moved from its Exposition Ave. office into its new and expanded 22,000 sq. ft. studio on East Side Avenue, just north of Fair Park and east of Deep Ellum in Dallas. The studio consists of a 1250 sq. ft. sound stage with a 16-feet tall cyclorama. The studio also contains editorial, audio, and color correction production suites. The current office space was renovated from a run-down warehouse into a world class production facility.
