ATARAXIA-STUDIO was born in 2008 and was set on fire in 2009. Then, as a zombie would do, the studio raised from the dead. It was created by Hector and Mario Campoy, two brothers who grew up watching zombie and gore movies, from “Night of the Living Dead” to “Bad Taste” or “Braindead”, “The Evil Dead” or “Army of Darkness”, and playing video games like “Resident Evil” or “Silent Hill”. Of course, we were marked by those bloody experiences.
So, probably as a therapy method, we decided to found the studio, whose name, ATARAXIA, was taken from the awesome movie “Lucky Number Slevin”, and refers to a condition characterized by freedom from worry. Since then, we have been creating zombies through movies, video games, SFX makeup, illustration and books.
And yeah, we are trying to do so with no worries.
