Fan Film AnimationEdit
"The Lord of The Daleks" - 2007Edit
Anermay Studios entered the fan film scene with its clay animated serial "The Lord of the Daleks".
The four-part adventure received middling reviews for its oddly shaped models and off-the-wall voice acting.
The story was a simple one: the Daleks have invaded Earth, and Davros, their creator, wants the Doctor's help.
Although creator/animator Jon Gransden can no longer watch the story without blushing, he was certainly proud of it at the time. The production also raised over £100 for BBC's Children in Need charity.
"The Bermuda Triangle" - 2008Edit
In 2008 Anermay went into production of its second clay-animated "Doctor Who" adventure, the Ill-fated "The Bermuda Triangle". The project was eventually cancelled due to time constraints and a dispiriting turnout for the premiere of part one.
Christmas with the Enemy - 2008-2010Edit
In the Winter of 2008, Christopher Thomson of Teenz Inc. approached Anermay with a request for something which had never really been seen before: A 2D animated fan film, based on an unmade fan audio. The film would star two well-known "Who tube" Doctors.
"Christmas with the Enemy" went into production and was eventually completed after about three years (four if you include the writing phase) of work. You can view the finished production on YouTube.

"Incursion" - 2009Edit
After the success of the opening two parts of "Christmas with the Enemy", Anermay was approached by Trinity Productions' Thomas Rees-Kaye to create one episode adventure featuring The Cybermen.
The story was the first to be Anermay's first use of Animation Software 'Adobe Flash', as well as hand drawn character designs. The finished adventure is now available on Youtube.
