A new Barcelona based production house representing a range of directors and illustrators to create projects that are more than just the norm.
BOL is a full-service animation and illustration production house made up of a hand-picked roster of international directors and illustrators. Their unique strengths and diverse voices cover a broad spectrum of narratives, styles, and techniques, to develop short-form commissioned and original content across all screens and media.
The new company is led by Marcello Buselli – CEO & EP – and Ibran Trassierra – EP – two of the founders of animation studios, Device, All in Pixel, and Amigo Total. They are incorporating their current in-house team of producers and creatives with BOL, to offer a wider range of content possibilities.

Bringing in over 10 years of experience in the production industry, both Marcello and Ibran have produced animation for some of the world’s most established brands such as Google, Spotify, and American Express.
“Merging our knowledge and resources with some of our favorite artists felt like a natural progression for us. We are now excited to create more unique original and commissioned content with BOL’s infrastructure” Marcello Buselli.
