GSW Animation Limited is one of Jamaica’s premier animation studios that specializes in the business of providing first rate animation services for studios and other clients locally and internationally as well as the development of indigenous intellectual property. After opening our doors in February 2012, GSW has invested heavily in the three pinnacles of world class animation content; human capital, hardware and software technology.

In terms of software, GSW utilizes the Toon Boom suite of animation production applications including Harmony and Storyboard Pro. The Harmony platform affords GSW the ability to leverage Toon Boom’s enterprise production capabilities to successfully bid on and partner with other studios worldwide on high profile production work. Boasting a staff of well trained and highly skilled illustrators and animators; most of whom hold Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees (Visual Communication and Illustration) from Jamaica’s prestigious Edna Manley School for the Visual and performing Arts, GSW takes pride in ensuring that we have the best talent delivering quality services to world class standards.

But our commitment to quality and high standards does not stop there. GSW has been and continues to be involved in a number of initiatives in Jamaica and across the Caribbean to bolster the strong network of professionals and content creators that form backbone of the industry’s future. Among these initiatives are;

  • Establishment of Jamaica’s first Toon Boom Authorized Training Centre (ATC)
  • Training and Development programs sponsored by the World Bank and Jamaica’s Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining
  • Provision, with Toon Boom, of the curriculum and instructors for the University of the West Indies’ first cohort animation students
  • The Kingstoon Animation Festival in Kingston, Jamaica in
  • Regional development initiatives sponsored by the IADB and the Government of Canada

We are meticulous in our attention to detail. The management has over 75 years of combined experience in the areas of information technology, music and film production and finance.
