About Us

We’re Arcus Animation Studios!

We are a 2D animation studio that creates broadcast animation, promotional videos, video installations, inhouse original content and develops new IP.

We’ve enjoyed producing work for the likes of CBBC and E4, partnered with local and national agencies and brought outdoor events to life with spectacular animation based art installations.

So if you’re after any sort of animated content, be it for Tv, the internet, music videos, games, apps or projections on the moon, or if you’d just like to learn more about us and what we do, then please get in touch.

Since completing our first miniseries starring CBBC presenter Iain Stirling and his pooch pal Hacker, we have provided a complete broadcast animation service. From script to screen, our television work includes a follow up series for the CBBC starring canine comic presenters Hacker and Dodge, licensing short films for the BBC’s ‘big screens’ nationwide, idents for E4 and several commercials for regional broadcast.

Promotions

The North East has an amazing tech startup community and we’ve created promotional videos for the best, of them along with explainers and motion graphic animations for company’s far and wide. Working directly with the client or through Agencies we get to know you and companies personality, in order to personify it.

Over the past five years, we’ve created a range of animation based video installations for events such as Enchanted Parks, Shimmer Exhibition and the festival of the North East.

 

Seen at festivals, events and exhibitions, our installations bring together innovative techniques, high quality animation and storytelling to bringing outdoor spaces to life; creating something memorable for kids, families and the whole community.
