About Us


What We Do

The Chinimble Lore team is focused on developing and creating quality entertainment that is as commercially viable as it is artistically satisfying – both for us and our target audience. While our current development roster consists of a mix of horror, supernatural thriller and SciFi, our extended book of properties covers action, comedy and drama.
