Motion graphics

Whether you require character animation, a kinetic text piece, or scientifically accurate medical or engineering material, our motion graphic artists know how to bring it to life. We work in 2D and 3D in a wide range of styles, including infographics, product demos, technical explanations and brand stories.

Our animation work is meticulously planned so that the all important message doesn't get lost amongst eye candy or bells and whistles. Great animation is deceptively simple and we will make sure that we simplify, clarify and concentrate your message for maximum effect.

Visuals and storyboards

We will work closely with you develop your script before commencing storyboarding and visual treatments. The treatments are designed to hone the look and feel before our animators bring the concepts to life.



Voiceover and music

To set the tone and tempo of your animation we will develop a one off music bed for you. We work closely with the best commercial composers available to give your piece exactly the right flavour.

Having music composed for you personally offers many benefits over library music. Firstly you'll have the opportunity to listen and make adjustments on the fly to the music our composers are developing.

The approved piece can then be fitted precisely to the length of your animation and can even be engineered to exactly match the rhythms of your final edit. Once finished, you will own the global copyright, making worldwide distribution or web publication a doddle.

Realising your vision

Animation is about telling a story, so it's crucial that we understand your messages and business objectives clearly as we go through the process of interpreting them for the screen.

These projects are often about taking something complicated and hard to explain, and finding a way to represent it visually and accurately in a very short space of time in a way that engages and entertains, as well as informs. For some examples of our work check out the Motionworks gallery or contact us if you'd like to know more.

Kaye is an exceptional person to have on your side. As well as a lateral thinker, she blends great creativity with practical consideration to develop solutions that are inventive but also thought-through. Confident and extremely competent in client company, I look forward to continuing to work with Kaye in future and would have no hesitation in recommending her."

Environmental Policy

We recognise that our day to day operations inevitably impact on the environment in a number of ways and we work to reduce any potentially harmful effects of such activities whenever we can.

We have widely adopted a 'paperless' approach to business communications. Our web based IT systems substitute for paper messages and very often travel. We teleconference and video conference at every opportunity and we view conservation of resources and the environment as a basic business necessity.

Specifically, Drum will:

  • Operate a car sharing policy for all staff.
  • Encourage a cycle to work policy for all staff.
  • Ensure that our policies are implemented by all staff and help them understand the relevant aspects of the policy through guidelines, regular communications and action plans.
  • Promote the recycling of office materials and items purchased and use recycled materials wherever possible.
  • Minimise waste in operations and product development, and conserve resources through efficient use and planning.
  • Regard environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice as the minimum standards of environmental practice.
