Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment Studios (ILBE Studios), formerly Iervolino Studios, is a creative animation studio based in Serbia which combines talent, imagination and passion to create story-driven short animated content for streaming platforms and global audiences, entertaining the young and those young at heart.
ILBE Studios is a subsidiary of Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment (ILBE), founded by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi. ILBE is a renowned international production company operating in the film and television industry, using the business model of Hollywood Majors. Some of their most well-known projects include the critically acclaimed live-action films, “Waiting for the Barbarians“, “The Poison Rose”, as well as the popular “Arctic Friends” animated series spin-off, and the global hit “Puffins”, with Johnny Depp in the role of Johnny Puff.
We follow the same creative vision with the goal of creating unique, high-quality, imaginative content for audiences worldwide while welcoming A-list Hollywood stars. The legendary actor, Johnny Depp, was the one who officially opened our Belgrade branch in 2021. Not only that, but he also lent his character and voice to Johnny Puff, one of the main protagonists in the animated series “Puffins Impossible", which is the first animated series to be produced in Serbia. It was created by ILBE Studios and produced by Archangel Digital Studios, and is now available to millions of people around the world.
Our creative teams consist of talented scriptwriters, storyboard artists, animators, illustrators, designers, modelers, editors, VFX and compositing artists, all working like a team of superheroes on creating exceptional animated content. We are proud of the fact that all phases of the creative process are carried out in Serbia - from ideation to realization, and ultimately, the worldwide distribution of our animated content.
