We work with all the leading tools in the media production industry, including 3DS Max, Maya, Motion Builder, Z-Brush and the Adobe Creative Suite.

Our bespoke interactive software is produced using a mixture of technologies including Unity, VVVV, Flash, .Net, PHP, HTML 5 and countless other software tools from show controllers to mechanical interface drivers.

The company is organised into skilled teams: Production, Design, Film & Video, CGI, Software Development and Technical Delivery. However, we have one specialism – delivering high quality projects. Our individual core disciplines rarely stay isolated for long and our multi-skilled teams strive to deliver each type of work to the same high standard.

DESIGN

Design is at the heart of everything we do. From the spatial design of a visitor experience through to the graphic design of a user interface, our designers are key to every project we deliver. They work in 2D and 3D, and have been trusted with world famous brand identities like Coca-Cola, Ericsson and Volvo.

FILM & VIDEO

We have our own in-house camera unit and studio, lighting equipment, sound recording and green-screen. We also have dedicated, broadcast quality edit suites. We’ve shot small talking head videos with a minimal crew, and large multi-camera studio shoots with huge motion control camera rigs and a cast and crew of hundreds.

CGI

We have a render farm with over 300 nodes producing high quality images at very high resolutions, as is necessary for multi-screen/projection projects. Additionally, our permanent motion capture studio allows us to create realistic character animation on site. This allows us to create realistic character animation for any project that might require it. The CGI team regularly collaborate with the Film team to create amazing Visual FX shots.
