The Breakdown

I love watching Animation. Visual Effects. Motion Graphics. Art. I know you do too.

This post is all about the process beyond the public window, the stuff we do. There’s a mix of motion graphics and visual effects, branding, commercials and feature film work, some from individuals up to huge facilities. There’s something for everyone.

To all you artists out there, you are very good, thank you for creating such beautiful work and sharing the development with us too.

p.s. If you know of any more worthy breakdown examples, please post them in the comments and I’ll add them to this post, the more the merrier!
