Over the last 10 years we have worked with many different forms of animation, for a varied list of clients, creating content for Theatre, Film, TV and online.
Clients have included Sainsburys, Granta, CSC Media (and Lego), Channel Four, and more.
We’ve produced extensive theatrical animated content for companies including Make Do and Mend, Love and Will, and The Mycellium.
We’ve also been developing our own IP projects, and have several projects in development for the future.
Our first in-house film ‘Jolly Girl’ was completed in October 2019 and has now begun its run on the festival and competition circuit.
We have an animation aesthetic that is more traditional than contemporary, preferring the simple skills of film making allied to a rich organic subject, strong emphasis on lighting, composition and we prefer reality always above emulation.
If we can make it happen in camera, why “fix it in post”?
We believe story is the most vital thing of all.
Skatedog maintain several studios in London dedicated to stop motion film making, model making and practical effects.
We’ve become particularly adept at motion control for animation and VFX and have multiple professional options for motion control for cameras, puppets and sets- allowing for motion control beyond the usual boundaries- if you can imagine it, we can probably make it happen.
Skatedog Studios feature a large shooting space, separate workshop and art and modelling environments, with the capacity to teach student animators or support clients’ projects.
