WE SEE A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THE WONDER IN LIFE. A WORLD WHERE GOOD AND POSITIVITY ARE SEEN IN THE DARKEST OF PLACES, AND AWE AND INSPIRATION BECOME PART OF PEOPLE'S WORLD-VIEW.

Cumulo Pictures wants to help create a world where we do not see the negativity and terror out there, but the wonder, the exploration, and the ways we can positively impact the world and each other within ourselves. We hope to change people’s world-view and perspective to see the world as a brighter place that's within their power to change for the better. We will do that through wondrous animation and new worlds that we invite people into. Worlds that captivate and spark the imagination of our audience.

Cumulo Pictures' stories are character-centric and protagonist led - we see the world through their eyes and, in doing so, learn more about our own. We achieve this through an integrity of the creative concept, empowering the artist on both sides of the production process - the writer and director, alongside the illustrators and the animators. Our ideas, our concepts, our worlds, our artwork, are distinct and honest. Integrity of creativity and ideas is maintained by treating our films as art. Our views on a more positive, productive, and open world are reflected in how we treat our audiences, our suppliers, and each other.

Cumulus: A story of love, clouds, and a grumpy bird

Cumulus is a short animated film about finding the wonder in the world. Our protagonist, Penwyn, is an adventourius young girl, whose safe and worried dad, Bryder, has trouble keeping a handle on her. We follow Penwyn as she breaks away to find her own adventure, discovering a grumpy and disheveled Blue Footed Booby on the way, who goes by the title, Mister Booby. Stressed about his own coming-of-age family, Penwyn follows Mister Booby, in the hope she can help him, all the way to the world in the clouds. Finding herself lost in this world in the sky is just the adventure she craves. But as she and Mister Booby learn about each other, they realise someothing else - they learn how their loved ones really feel.

We recently ran a funding campaign to help make cumulus a reality. Find out more here, and watch the video below.

Cumulus is about people understanding one another. it’s about appreciating the people around you, the people who love you, and seeing things from their perspective. It’s in doing this that we may learn about each other rather than lash out, and build meaningful relationships rather than meaningless fighting. At it's heart, Cumulus is about the capActiy of love we have for each other, and the power we have in our choices to act on that.
