Our digital studio hosts our team of illustrators, motion graphics animators and digital designers. We offer character design, storyboards, illustration and animatics. Our team has a wealth of experience in motion-graphics and explainer animations, all produced on site.
Model Making Workshop
Our model shop is at the heart of our studio, servicing both studio spaces. The shop enables us to sculpt, weld, mould, fabricate and paint puppets and sets. Not only does our workshop avoid costly and time consuming off-site builds, our model team can also liaise with producers and the animation team throughout production, ensuring a seamless workflow.
