Chris Lupton

Lead Motion Graphic Designer

As a keen animator, Chris’ desire to push boundaries and explore new techniques means he excels at adding visual flair, dynamic energy and creativity to any subject matter. With a curious mind and a natural ability to problem solve (at pace), not to mention an absurd sense of humour, Chris is a personable, dedicated and diligent member of the team.

Nick Thornthwaite

Head of Live Action

Nick has the driest sense of humour in the team and an unrivalled passion for sustainability which stems from his resourceful nature. Equally adept behind the camera filming as he is when creating dynamic video edits, Nick combines his extensive experience in animation, editing and camera work to create truly imaginative pieces of work that push boundaries.

Mia Moore


Mia’s inventive, creative abilities, combined with her calm, collected nature, allow her to bring client briefs to life through the art of animation. A stop motion and AFX specialist, not to mention an expert puppeteer, Mia has experience in various forms of animation, with a particular passion for character design and the natural world, which often feed into her work.

Richard Moir


Richard is a story telling expert, able to create compelling, engaging narrative from the sparsest of footage. With a considered, calm and reflective approach, Richard is equally at home cutting together serious presentation videos, bitesize social media content or high-energy promotional showreels using the diverse set of editing tricks he has stored up his creative sleeves.
