Patrol/helicopter animation – Secure Satcom Systems


The second animated sequence we produced for Secure Satcom Systems (part of the Astrium group). This sequence shows that having secure, continuous connectivity allows decisions to be made with all the relevant information to hand. They establish a secure, stable satellite broadband connection from a moving helicopter, and also get around the major issue of

UAV helicopter animation – Secure Satcom Systems


We produced a short animated sequence highlighting some innovations from Secure Satcom Systems (part of the Astrium group). Not only can they establish a secure, stable satellite broadband connection from a moving helicopter, but they also get around the major issue of whirling pieces of metal scattering the signal, by pulsing the signal to pass

Creating Life – the new field of Synthetic Biology


We were commissioned to produce a series of animations to help explore the abstract world of synthetic biology, allowing the concepts of designing and programming bacteria to perform a particular task, in this case creating a colour change when exposed to a parasite – brilliant for testing water sources in remote locations, with a clear

ESA’s Solar Orbiter, Reloaded


An update of the Solar Orbiter mission animation, to reflect the new configuration as it competes with other high profile ESA missions for the final commissioning decision.  Go go gadget orbiter!!! Supplied with an updated CAD file and a list of changes to materials and instrument configurations, we were able to re-make the animation in

Royal Society Summer Exhibition


We recently had two animations aired at the Royal Society’s Summer Exhibition. The Royal Society is the national academy of science of the UK, and this event allowed the general public to meet the minds behind some of the UK’s most exciting scientific advances.  We produced two videos for the University of Cambridge‘s Department of
