About GemGfx Animation Studios

Greetings everyone!

Thank you for visiting the GemGfx Animation Studio's Patreon page. We are a very small studio based in Trinidad and Tobago, and we are in the business of telling diverse and engaging stories that we hope will inspire and encourage people. We are a husband and wife team and we are passionate about storytelling.

I taught myself 2D animation in order to animate our stories and Dixie Ann is teaching herself 3D modelling. We began our storytelling journey back in 2013 and since then we have created a few cool stories that we are working on sharing with everyone. After the events of 2020, including the pandemic, we realized that people were going to need something to encourage and inspire them to overcome the challenges that we are facing. So we began work on what would be our third IP, Jumbie.


We are currently working on Jumbie
Jumbie is the story of a young woman from Trinidad and Tobago who decides to use her misfortune to fight the evils that plague her country. We released the trailer on February 15th 2021 and it quickly went VIRAL. The response to Jumbie has been so overwhelming that we are in the process of seeking corporate sponsorship to put together the series. We plan on having three seasons at 12 episodes each. 

In the meantime, we will be continuing our work on Jumbie. Our first goal is a proof of concept pilot episode. If you would like to support us in this effort come join us on this journey.

Have a look at our other titles. 

Our first project was Celflux. 


Then we created The God of The Wilderness

We were sceptical, but we decided to open up this Patreon page to help us connect with the people who have expressed an interest in supporting us on this journey. We are a studio with limited resources but we believe that if you have a burning desire to create you find a way to make it happen. So we do what we can with what we have. With your support, we will be able to do a lot more. Thanks in advance if you decide to support. It would mean a lot to us.

There's a theory first proposed by a visionary named Kevin Kelly

"To be a successful creator you don’t need millions. You don’t need millions of dollars or millions of customers, millions of clients or millions of fans. To make a living as a craftsperson, photographer, musician, designer, author, animator, app maker, entrepreneur, or inventor you need only thousands of true fans."

So we would like to make this our first and most important goal. To connect with the people with whom our stories resonate.
