Imagine a music video where...

YOU HAVE TOTAL CONTROL
No shooting stopped due to poor weather, no demanding actors,  no big team schedule issues that cause delays... In animation you just need a compact team delivering the exact image of what you want (or something even better).
ANYTHING CAN BE BROUGHT ON SCREEN
From underwater mermaids to colorful cities, flying dragons, or shiny lyrics moving around your screen. With animation, the only limit is your imagination!
YOU DON'T NEED JAPANESE TO GET AN ANIME STYLED VIDEO
Our Spanish team director lives in Japan and studied animation in Tokyo. So, you get a full English speaking team with totally trained Japanese (digital!) methods.
To see what we're capable of, just check our award-winning Return the Favor, animated short film.

The first Animated Music Video is ready:

This spring 2020 we created a music video for the Boleroglam team Daniel, me estás matando. And it is about a story based on androids!

It should be released this summer (possibly delayed again by the band, due to covid-19). Check our Instagram to see more of its development, or subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of its release.

 

(Mar) is an excellent worker and artist, she takes care of the project needs while respecting moral and artistic values.

Nacho Sotelo, Co-producer of Daniel, Me Estás Matando

You'll take full advantage from us if you want...

  • Something with Fantasy, Love, Adventure, Mystery, and/or Fun
  • Videos with a moral/advice message.
  • Digital process and remote work
  • Anime (Japanese) style with some European touch
  • Short story format with no/few words
  • Flexibility and good communication: we listen, reply fast, and we set expectations for what's next
  • Characters close to human and animal proportions

We are the right studio for you if we share our values...

1. All stories contain life-changing messages. Example: Trust in people's actions, not assumptions.

2. No use of filler content to prolong the story. Every scene leads to the best ending possible!

3. Stories don’t support gambling, smoking, drugs, homophobia, racism, or war.

4. We push into developing environmentally friendly creative processes. If we find a way to save the planet, we'll make it happen. 

5. High importance on publishing content that meets deadlines and set expectations.

How we work together

1
We make a video call and discuss the goals and features of your music video. Are we a good fit?!

Expect lots of questions here. We need to make sure we deliver the BEST product you can possibly imagine.
2
We settle an agreement to make clear all relevant expectations: deadlines, what will the studio provide, style references, when and how revisions work, payment method, details that "must happen" in the script, message and feeling the animation needs to communicate, etc.

This will all depend on your project needs of course! It is extremely customizable.
3
Once everything is clear and we received all content from you (song, lyrics...), we start working on preproduction.

We'll present a script, including concept art of the visuals we have in mind.
4
After the script is settled, you'll set the final character/style designs and the drafted animated storyboard. That is how you can actually see the characters in motion with the timing of your special song.

Soon after the storyboard and final style gets your thumbs up, we'll finish 1 cut so you can see how it all looks like put together in a "final rendered scene".
5
After lots of patience and love, the animated video is ready! Is this what you wanted?

A few days before the delivery date you'll see the final version. This will give us margin for revisions if needed.
6
After the second (and final) payment, we'll give you the final files, watermark free, and bonuses you may have requested such as thumbnail for Youtube,  stills for SNS and others.

Deliverables included

  • - File for the main distributing platform (Example: Youtube HD 1920x1080 at mp4)

  • - If the video is not delivered up to X date, 100% refund is given.
  • - 10h for revisions and changes.
