HistoryEdit

Sharratt left his post as President & Execuitve Producer of Glass Ball Productions in 2000. After leaving, he founded Lix Animation Digital, which was intended as a rival to Glass Ball Productions. The company is named after LIX, a readability measure indicating the difficulty of reading a text.

By 2001, a deal was announced positioning Lix Animation Digital as Paramount Pictures' family entertainment arm via Viacom that would produce one to two films a year starting in 2003. As an independent animation studio, Lix retains creative control and Paramount exclusively distributes the films.

Lix's first film Greenuts was released on November 26, 2003. It has since then been solely focused on animated features. In 2006, Lix's second film Under the Blue Sea was released in theaters November 22, 2006. In 2007, Lix's third film Greenuts 2 was released in theaters November 21, 2007, it is a sequel to Greenuts.
