Animation Studio

Art of Movement

We predominantly produce CG animated kids-comedy for TV utilising a motion capture system as one of our primary production tools. This process allows for a performance-driven production method that is biased towards a director driven style. By utilising motion capture we rely on the use of experienced stage performers, and the process offers a fresh and spontaneous style of animation. The rationale of this production process is based on the ability to turn around multiple episodes fairly quickly once all the 3D assets are completed, while also retaining high production values. As a young studio we also believe that our success in the long term will be derived from our ability to procure talented young artists and performers. As part of our core values as a studio each of our senior production staff is committed to creating a culture of mentorship with their junior teams.

Our first animated project SILLY SEASONS is starting production in October 2014 and we’re hoping to green-light our second show in late 2015.
