About Blue Seat Studios:

Our mission is to teach big ideas through humor.  Why? Because it’s fun!

While we’re at it, we also want to make videos that make a difference.  

We believe that even the most serious subjects can be treated with humor and compassion.

We use hand-drawn animation to bring stories to viewers in a very down-to-earth and human way.  But what distinguishes us most is our focus on clear and engaging scripts. Making the world a better place doesn’t have to be boring or preachy, and we’re here to prove it.
