Our Services

Character Design

An iterative process from initial style setting through to beautifully posed, expressive final artwork. Be it part of a wider production process or a stand alone deliverable, coming up with new characters is one of our favourite bits to do!

Animation Design

Concept development and style setting, everything from movement, expression, cameras, lighting, cinematography -designing all the nuances and subtleties as part of the pre-production stage.

Animation Production

Executing the design; from building scenes and characters in 3d to animatics with which we time out the action, before we do the full animation bit! Using our custom rigs to execute those idiosyncrasies and characterisations.

Animation Post Production

Where we ensure all those nuances from animation design and production flow through with final tweaks on camera movements, compositing, effects and lighting.

CG Illustration

Be it for billboards, in store or digital; character based pieces to live action compositing and everything in between. If you can think it up, we can build it in CG.

Series Concept Development

Collaborating not just on the visuals but considering the entire concept, the world, taking the make believe into the believable.
