Ian Kelly is a 12-year-old kid with a kind of imagination that goes "cut" in the night. He thinks that his life is a stage and that he is the director! With his Spielberg-like imagination, he often tends to get himself into many strange situations! But somehow he manages to walk away frome each "set" with a sense of acomplishment, or a detention!
Being Ian is created by Ian James Corlett, a voiceover legend, animation writer, and co-creator of YTV's Yvon of the Yukon. Loosely based on Ian's real life growing up in a suburb of Vancouver it is designed by internationally acclaimed independent filmmaker Marv Newland, whose work includes Bambi Meets Godzilla. Studio B is an award-winning animation studio that has produced original series such as Yvon of the Yukon, What About Mimi? and D'Myna Leagues, which currently air in over 22 countries around the world.
