Animation Has Changed...

Over the last 20 years the world of animation has changed from being artist creating the illusion of live with pencil and paper to an industry driven by hard and software.  The concept of making animation by hand, drawing frame by frame, has become rare in our world today.  Many schools have stopped teaching classical animation and many studios - due to the lack of classically trained animators - have abandoned the craft for the adoption of convenience and hotkeys.  Classical animation has become a rare in our world today.

As an artist-driven studio, we focus on traditional techniques and principles which never go out of style.  For our clients, this means being able to provide first class quality and care and a wider artistic range.  Being artist-driven has helped our clients win awards, create unique visual narratives and memorable productions which continue to entertain and educate audiences long after a release.
