ABOUT PARANOVELLA



Founded by media veteran Tim Nye (Sonic Net, AllTrue, Thread Waxing Space, Sunshine Theater, Nyehaus) and creative director James Raskin (Indelible Media), Paranovella Studios looks to the past to create the future of content for multi-platform distribution.

Paranovella Studios brings together the graphic novel, animation and old-time radio programming in an elegant media convergence.

One of the most surprising by-products of the digital revolution has been the return to radio-style programming. Podcasts have injected new life into this stunning, anachronistic art form – underscoring our appetite for its storytelling abilities…

Enter raucous upstart Paranovella Studios, harnessing the narrative podcasts’ potential while invoking the hyper-realism of the graphic novel. Paranovella embraces the graphic novel’s capacity to visualize thoughts and actions simultaneously, suspending time in ways that are inhibited by the linear structure of cinema. Paranovella has created a unique ‘short-hand’ animation style that sheds ‘unnecessary’ visual information while preserving the dramatic potency of the marriage of audio and graphic imagery.
