From live action feature documentaries to animation series and now podcasts, Rotating Planet is a multidisciplinary production company with a wide range of experience.
Committed to the power of distinctive storytelling, Rotating Planet produces and distributes an extensive library of award winning, internationally broadcast documentaries, TV series, and short films. Renowned for taking novel interests in complex ideas that straddle the line between human society and animal behaviour, Rotating Planet’s oeuvre stretches from the untouched corners of Antarctic animal habitats to the mind of the great poet, Irving Layton. Rotating Planet Productions shoots in extreme and remote environments, collaborating with leading experts and cinematographers, universities, leading research centers, community leaders, and more, in a variety of fields. We take pride in our use of 4K and 360° cinematography, virtual reality, and interactive mediums, animation, and innovative film techniques.
For more than two decades, the company’s producer and director Ari A. Cohen has been breaking barriers in social, cultural, historic and wildlife documentary filmmaking, with a humanitarian and environmentally-conscious focus. Rotating Planet Productions is made up of a diverse and passionate team of artists, based in the Mile End neighborhood of Montreal, Canada.
At Rotating Planet, something is always in the works.
After years of documentary filmmaking, our team started exploring the animation world in 2019. Zamzoom is our latest animation project. This imaginative and hilarious new animated series for kids follows the adventures of Zamzoom and Orbie - two space explorers on a wildlife adventure.
