Hello there,

In 2020 I set up Filfla Studio as an independent art house studio based in Malta specialising in storytelling through the medium of digital art and 2D animation. 

Since then I worked with a number of talents to develop animated shorts going to win international film festivals. I also produced a graphic novel - distributed in Malta, Berlin and London as well as collaborating in producing animated backgrounds for theatre productions. 

I am responsible for the pre-production process and securing funding for the projects. If fundings are secure I then proceed to contact a number of talents to work on the projects. I have so far collaborated and worked with scrip writers, sound artists, 2D and 3D artists, graphic novelists and more.

Once the project is concluded I go ahead and plan their distribution. 

If you have a project in mind, wish to collaborate or a talent looking for freelance opportunities feel free to contact me on or  for more details.

Thank you


Fabrizio Ellul

Animation is done in the frame-by-frame tradition using different techniques, including rotoscoping. All animation is in 2D and digitally drawn and coloured.
