ART DEPARTMENT SERVICES

WHAT WE DO
Our tool belt is packed with award-winning design services for perfecting the creative side of your film or project.

We can help you through Script development stages with Storyboards and Concept Art, then take it further with Production Design and VFX supervision on set, or just add the explosive finishing touches with CGI and post production comps.

The Art Department is under the direction of our in-house designer Elizabeth E. Schuch, who specializes in pre-visualization for 3D, and works closely with the VFX department in the design and development stages.

STORYBOARDS

FROM DRAMATIC SCENES TO OUTER SPACE, AND FROM INSIDE THE BODY TO INSIDE HISTORICAL EVENTS, WE CAN VISUALIZE ANYTHING YOUR IMAGINATION CAN STIR UP. 

We work with you to find just the right style for your project, taking your timeframe, budget, artistic needs and presentational format into account.

Specializing in pre-visualization for 3D, we're known for using unique, hand-drawn storyboard in addition to photo-real.
