about us

We design beautiful moving graphics, animation and visual effects that breathe life into abstract ideas for filmmakers, and clarify complex concepts for their audiences. We believe in design with context and have a passion for cinematic storytelling. We work regularly with projects based in London, LA and NYC, and can adapt our resources on a per project basis.

Client Testimonial

"The opening credits just blow my mind; the designers, Blue Spill are so good. The band had that slogan in the early days: ‘psychedelic violent crimes’... What does that even really mean? I just said do that, whatever that is, make me an opening sequence that’s psychedelic and violent and insane. We’ve worked together with Blue Spill on the last four of my movies, and we have great rapport, so I’ve had to tell them less and less and then they end up giving me more and more. The communication is almost psychic at this point, and I think they like working with me because I don’t give a lot of direction, just some imagery and some ideas and they’re free to do whatever they want, and it always gets better and better. We won an award for the titles at SXSW for Excellence in Design, and that made me very happy."
