We are an animation studio founded by film makers who believe that every creative project starts with a good idea.

 

Though we have deep roots in the traditional craft of animation we are interested in embracing the ever-changing way in which animation is created, consumed, and shared. Aside from films and commercials, we have worked on interactive projects, VR, 3D, 2D and motion graphics. From our studio in London we have the resources to take a job from concept, right the way through to the final stages of production, crafting ideas with an eye on the bespoke technical and creative solutions that each job requires.

 

Our creative process is always led by a single voice, with the support of the team behind it. We believe every project requires a different approach and thats whats great about having a team with such a diverse range of styles and skills. 

 

Our online videos have over 20 million combined views to date. We have received various awards, including 7 Vimeo Staff Picks, a BAFTA nomination for best short film, and awards from the LA Music Video Festival and ADC Young Guns. We have been featured in publications including The Verge, Buzzfeed, Variety, The BBC, GQ, and Engadget, and worked with such clients as Nickelodeon, Ubisoft, Dyson, Freeview, Virgin, HSBC, and Axe. If you’d like to know more about any of our projects please visit our work page and dig into the story behind each one.
