How We Work


The first step of every project actually has nothing to do with animation. We chat, we research, and we listen to ensure that we know exactly what your needs are.


Now that we know what you're looking for, we can start working on what it looks like. This is where pencils meet paper, or in our case, pens meet Cintiqs.


Once everyone's excited about the look, we start working on story beats and timing through storyboarding and animatics.


This is the most labor intensive aspect of the whole process. Thankfully, putting in all that work during the previous stages takes out any guesswork so we can get to work.

Final Delivery

We cheer, we high five, and we get some much needed rest after we deliver your beautiful, new animation!
