Sav! The World Productions is a French production company, mainly active in the field of animation, formed in 1998 by writer-director Savin Yeatman-Eiffel. STW is also one of the rare Western companies to collaborate regularly with Japan, both artistically and financially.

STW is mainly known to the general public for its award-winning hit series Ōban Star-Racers (26 half-hours). Coproduced with Bandai and Disney, Oban aired in more than 100 countries worldwide including ABC Family & Toon Disney (US), NHK BS1 & Disney Channel (Japan), France 3 (Fr.), Super RTL (Germany), GMTV (UK), RAI2 (Italy) and Jetix/Disney XD. Nominated at the Bafta Awards, it won an Anime Land Award and a Grand Entertainment Prize at Polymanga. Iwasaki Taku and Yōko Kanno composed respectively the BGM and the credit songs.[1]

STW has also produced TV commercials and short films, exceptionally working on artistic development for third party companies (Zone of the Enders of Japanese studio Sunrise).[2]

After a hiatus of a few years the company currently develops new animated series including a sequel and a spinoff of Ōban Star-Racers;[3] as well as feature films projects: the historical epic The 2 Queens, developed under the helm of animation master Toshiyuki Inoue (Akira, Blood: The Last Vampire, Paprika, Giovanni's Island);[4] and the live-action adaptations of Gen Urobuchi's cult visual novel Saya no Uta [5] and of Argentinean playwright Claudio Tolcachir’s award-winning play The omission of the Coleman family (La omision de la familia Coleman).
