Our services.

Concept Development

Considering the entire concept, the world and the characters within it, be it IP or campaign led; we can work with you to get the most 'character and story' out of your concept

Design & Pre-Production

The first steps in style setting and animation design; everything from movement, flow, cameras, lighting, cinematography -designing all the nuances and subtleties as part of the pre-production stage. As design develops, so too does the edit - storyboards, animatics, VO, music and SFX - we do them all.


For print, digital or OOH campaigns; we can do character based pieces to live action compositing and everything in between. If you can think it up, we can make it. Head over to our Advertising and Comms page to see what we've created or get in touch to find out more.

Character Design

An iterative process that's all about working with you, from initial style setting through to beautifully posed, expressive characters. 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!


Video Production; from building scenes and characters to animating and any live action shoot (or both!). Did you know we use our custom built rigs to execute those lovely idiosyncrasies and characterisations?

Post Production

Compositing, grading and VFX, get in touch if you'd like to see what our post production team can do. A service in its own right; not just part of our animation process!

We're always looking to connect with new freelancers!
