ABOUT

Thirty years experience in animated advertising, journalism and education

We specialize in health and medical subjects as well as technical, app related and crowdsourcing explainer videos. All hand crafted original art, custom designed to suit your project exactly.

We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to a very wide variety of popular animation styles and techniques, including whiteboards, 2D animation, explainer videos, stop motion and claymation. We do not use templates or syndicated clip art libraries. We craft purpose built original art to match your needs precisely. Many companies contract our services and then sell our animations on for $10,000-$20,000 per minute. Yet, our rates are based upon $800 per completed minute of animated video, in any style, including voice overs, sound effects and original or royalty-free music.
