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 mini series, 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, idents for E4 and several commercials for regional broadcast.

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 companies far and wide. Working directly with the client or through Agencies we get to know you and companies personality, in order to personify it.
