About

Animations 
for everybody

Whether you are a company serious about video content or live streaming in need of animated graphics - or want to take your conference / concert to the next level with on stage visuals - or a film/TV production creating original works or versioning licenced content: Based on your existing logo and colors I create animated intros, texts and background graphics.

Editor-friendly

As a video editor myself I know that texts and animations rendered as video-files are not always flexible enough, that's why I can create animated Final Cut Pro X Titles or Premiere Pro Motion Graphic Templates. This way the animations are set but you can still change the texts in the future. Ideal both for experienced editors and new content creators looking to rapidly create videos.

Straightforward
to work with

After your initial contact by answering a few questions below, we set up a meeting to discuss your needs, the scope of the work, your budget, formats & delivery. For projects that can be completed in a couple of days, I require up front payment, to not delay the process. For bigger projects we can agree on 50% upfront payment and 50% before delivery. I'm always just an email / whatsapp call away.
