Whether you require character animation, a kinetic text piece, or scientifically accurate medical or engineering material, our motion graphic artists know how to bring it to life. We work in 2D and 3D in a wide range of styles, including infographics, product demos, technical explanations and brand stories.
Our animation work is meticulously planned so that the all important message doesn't get lost amongst eye candy or bells and whistles. Great animation is deceptively simple and we will make sure that we simplify, clarify and concentrate your message for maximum effect.
We will work closely with you develop your script before commencing storyboarding and visual treatments. The treatments are designed to hone the look and feel before our animators bring the concepts to life.
To set the tone and tempo of your animation we will develop a one off music bed for you. We work closely with the best commercial composers available to give your piece exactly the right flavour.
Having music composed for you personally offers many benefits over library music. Firstly you'll have the opportunity to listen and make adjustments on the fly to the music our composers are developing.
The approved piece can then be fitted precisely to the length of your animation and can even be engineered to exactly match the rhythms of your final edit. Once finished, you will own the global copyright, making worldwide distribution or web publication a doddle.
Animation is about telling a story, so it's crucial that we understand your messages and business objectives clearly as we go through the process of interpreting them for the screen.
These projects are often about taking something complicated and hard to explain, and finding a way to represent it visually and accurately in a very short space of time in a way that engages and entertains, as well as informs.
