We are Five

5th August 2015

Five years old. Time has flown. From a ramshackle office down a backstreet in North London (with outside toilet and no heating) via a deskshare with The Neighbourhood, setting up home at The Sharp Project, to our home now at 22 Lever Street in Manchesters Northern Quarter. Our work continues to evolve and the variety always keeps us on our toes. Which is exactly how we like it. What are we up to now? This summer we're working with Channel 4 on a new pilot which we hope we can uncover later this year, have just finished a film with Alphapunk about a new startup, designing lots of nice stuff for a new CBBC show about making Dens, building a transformer bus, and of course just finished our first mini superhero film. We've also spent the past few months working on our positioning and some strategy stuff which you will start to see more of over the coming months. Thanks to everyone for the last five. Here's to the next.

Creating Content that Moves Motion Design, Animation and 3D

Our Process

No matter what kind of motion graphics or motion design piece we are working on we have a process that we like to follow. We've designed a way we think works well and thought we'd share this with you. It gives you a little insight to what it's like to with us at Mighty Giant.
