About us

WE LOVE CHARACTERS

Firefly Animation London are a group of passionate creatives offering a full range of animation, storytelling, characters, branding, design and other creative services. Our international studios were established in 2011 by Ant Steel with a focus on characters and animation for corporate companies and brands. We work with SME’s and large enterprises to develop their brand awareness and help them embrace this philosophy during all phases of company growth. We’ve been fortunate to work on some multinational brands including companies such as HP, Samsung, Coke and Unilever amongst others.

We are situated just 20 minutes out of London in the city of St Albans, where the country air is fresh and your wellies get muddy. Our shared passion for animation and children’s educational television has encouraged our own series production, alongside charity driven projects dealing with environmental and animal welfare causes.

One last thing, we absolutely love coffee. In fact, most of our ideas have been spawned from the tables of coffee shops! So if you fancy a chat over a cuppa…

OUR SKILLS

Design. Create. Animate.

Design

Design

Character design is the most important stage of development. This is what defines the personality, purpose and story. Good design is what ultimately defines good characters.

Create

Create

Creating in 3D, our character design sketches are closely translated into a sculptured 3D model, that then gets fully texture painted, articulated and any hairy parts needed!

Animate

Animate

Animation is our passion and love. We combine good humor, timing, and the simple fundamentals of traditional animation to our 3D characters. Let's bring it all to life!
