We are the right studio for you if we share our values...
1. All stories contain life-changing messages. Example: Don't miss a chance to show your love for the people you care about.
2. No use of filler content to prolong the story. However long the story is, all scenes evolve towards the decided ending!
3. Stories don’t support gambling, smoking, drugs, homophobia, racism, or war.
4. We push into developing environmentally-friendly creative processes. We are conscious of our business decisions.
5. High importance on publishing content that meets deadlines and set expectations.
"(Mar) is an excellent worker and artist, she takes care of the project needs while respecting moral and artistic values."

Music video example commission
We make a video call or chat 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.
We settle an agreement to make clear all relevant expectations: deadlines, what will the studio provide, when and how revisions work, payment method, details that "must happen" in the script, message and feeling the animation needs to communicate, etc. This is all extremely customizable on your project.
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.
When the script is clear, 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.
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.
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 social media, and others.
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.
Revisions in 4 parts of the process: Script, Storyboard, Design, pre-Final video.
The team required to produce what we agreed.

On-screen lyrics in different languages (Japanese included!)
