Distant Future Animation Studio took the time to understand what was needed from myself, the client, and also the needs of the project as a whole then produced excellent work that added an essential extra dimension that we couldn’t have done ourselves.

"Working with Distant Future has been a revelation. From the initial meeting to discuss concepts and ideas, they move quickly to storyboard and animation with a flexible adaptable attitude. The output has consistently exceeded our expectations and has significantly improved the marketing of our business."


"Having never worked on an animation before, Distant Future made the process very clear and easy to navigate.
From the outset they were keen to understand the brief. Our animation was co-produced with a team of lay people working with us on the research project and DF were patient, flexible and responsive to all their input. The face-to-face meetings helped to build a good working relationship. The product was delivered on time within budget and everyone was proud of what had been achieved. I have already recommended Distant Future to a colleague!"


"It’s by far the best animation we’ve ever had done by some distance, you’ve been a pleasure to work with. I really appreciate the time you took to get to know the product. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the business seeing it, the frames I’ve shown people so far have definitely had the “wow” reaction.
We’ll definitely be coming to you again; we have another project in early planning that we’ll definitely be in touch about!"
