Masina Studios is a film production studio specialising in animation and VFX, creating films and resources to uphold identity, Language and culture
Masina (meaning Moon) was built around the values of identity and traditional storytelling - particularly fāgogo - the indigenous oratory style of Samoan storytelling which passes on tradition, knowledge, beliefs and values that are important to its culture.
Our vision is to revive and modernise the practice of fāgogo through animated film and visual effects, showcasing traditional myths and legends to preserve the history, customs, and art of their respective cultures.
Masina Studios Ltd. was established in 2020 by executive director India Taberner and personal assistant Tuifa'asisina Letelemalanuola Tuitofa Moe Penn
Our films are collaborative; we work with family and others within our Pacific communities to bring stories to life and preserve them as digital learning resources, as well as entertainment for a global audience.
