But, what does this mean for the future of Doodles Animation? Very exciting things, I promise…
What Does This Mean For Doodles Animation?
Basically, this marks a brand new chapter for Doodles as they continue to expand the franchise.
On one hand, we can now expect more captivating narrative storytelling, world-building, and character development! The Golden Wolf animation studios will breathe life into the Doodles NFTs!
On the other hand, it will open new doors for Golden Wolf. In detail, they’ll be exploring work beyond the confines of animation, such as experience design, product, fashion, and music. Clearly, this partnership is a win-win situation.
I couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with @ingi_erlingsson and the mega talented team at @_Goldenwolf_ We have already created some truly beautiful work together but what’s to come will be on another level. The future is colorful 🌈 https://t.co/jABi1UkeYQ

Moreover, Golden Wolf Founder Ingie Erlingsson will join Doodles as CCO (Chief Content Officer) while continuing to oversee Golden Wolf’s operations. However, he will play an active role in building the unique Doodles animation and design studio, taking the brand to the next level!
Partnership With PSYOP
Alongside this exciting work, Doodles will leverage Golden Wolf’s partnership with world-renowned digital marketing studio Psyop, to ‘reinvent storytelling and empower artists’. They called the venture ‘Active Ingredient’. And we love how it sounds…
What is Psyop? It is a company born to ‘Persuade, Change and Influence’ audiences. And their mission lies in producing iconic visual storytelling across all platforms and mediums. Moreover, their goal is to blur the lines between advertising and entertainment using unexplored methods.
The long-term goal of the joint venture is to create a dynamic AND AFFORDABLE 360-degree animation production ecosystem that lets creators tell stories in innovative ways that open doors to a new era of filmmaking.
Listen up, Artist and Record Producer Pharrel Williams, the Chief Brand Officer of Doodles, is also a member of the board at Psyop… So, naturally, we must expect some unique Doodles animation music videos. I am getting SnoopDogg flashbacks…
I’m thrilled for the whole @_goldenwolf_ team and look forward to seeing the doors that this will open for them in the future & I’m excited to start building alongside @poopie @burnttoast @evankeast @jholguin @pharrell @alfiemotion and the rest of the @doodles team

Fear not, Golden Wolf will not abandon any of its independent animation projects. The company will continue to create engaging content for its cross-industries clients. From entertainment and advertising to gaming and more, Golden Wolf does it all!
The Final Verdict on Doodles Animation
Anyone can tell you that this is an Alpha move in the Web3 world. With everyone in the industry blindly copying their predecessors, we need more original initiatives to spice things up in the space!
I don’t even need to think about it to make up my mind. Ultimately, this venture will prove beneficial and lucrative on so many levels, from upgrading and enhancing the Doodles animation ecosystem to providing top-tier content for investors and owners.
What does the future hold for this solid Web3 company? And finally, can we expect to see fascinating new content, more gaming experiences, and exclusive IRL events?
We can’t wait to see how this unfolds!
