Five Places

Suppose I should do this one first. I've done thousands of posts on this company already, but uni's making me do another one....

This is a place I'd be more than happy to work at, its a really nice company with friendly people working there. The studio consists of five people, the two main people in the company are Claire grey and Jon Turner and the other three are freelance; Sam Jones, Craig Knowles and Dave Ridges. There based in Manchester.
In terms of work, they do lots of animation in flash...mainly a flash animation based studio really, but also do 3D work, using 3D Max.

Anyway...here's there show reel, again

Another place I'd be more than happy to work at. When we went there seem'd like there was a lot of people working there and from hearing about ste getting a job there and matt doing freelance work, it seems like they...well...employ freelancers and full time people there! You know, getting people in when they have a high amount of work to do etc
When we were there for that brief we did back in 2nd year, we talked to Jon Humphreys (Creative Director) and Sarah Baker (Studio Director)...

Heres what it says on their Vimeo...

'We work with clients across advertising, design, broadcast, architecture and beyond' 
Pretty Wide range of stuff going on in the neighbourhood! Heres their Showreel....

This is a place I found out about a while back (when looking for companies for this type of exercise in the second year)
What appeiled to me was the variation of work they do, on there website they list their services;

Concept Artwork
Character Design
2D/3D Illustration
Photorealistic Rendering
2D/3D Animation
Interactive Design
Interactive Asset Creation.

They have a 'recent' project nominated for a BAFTA and EMMY award

Their clients include;
Lloyds TSB

Same sort of stuff happening here at milkytea,  full time people working at their studio in Liverpool and at the same time also hiring freelancers for specific projects. here's their BLOG and their 2010 showreel...

they have some nice work, a guy called Sean is the creative director as well as Tina (no second names given)
Here's what they say about themselves on their WEBSITE,

'a creative CG Animation company with a passion for narrative, imagery and visual style.'

It's all 3D stuff at the pond...heres their christmas animation...

It specializes in animation for television, games and the film industry. It 'big player' is Richard Drumm (what are the odds!) It has some nice pieces of work which are all 3D animated.
