For Immediate Release
Everyone loves a compelling story.
As one of Canada’s few
geek… nerd…artist owned and managed animation studios we at Elliott Animation believe the best stories start and end with talent. That’s why we empower our team to create innovative and compulsively watchable family entertainment, which is another way of saying, we make awesome cartoons.
We love doing what we do. You might even say we’re nuts about it.
Our team thrives on our flexible and innovative yet pragmatic production pipeline, our positive studio vibe, and our creativity. We appreciate entrepreneurial spirit as much as talent and ability. Our clients appreciate our can-do attitude, our 30 years of industry experience, and our serious love of the craft.
Internationally regarded for our work, we combine world class talent with inspired execution, outside-the-box creativity, meticulous attention to craft, and a commitment to budget and deadlines to make every frame count.
Focusing on concept, direction, storyboard, layout, design and key animation, George Elliott and his artists have worked on more than 1000 2D & 3D animated series episodes, Direct-to-Video features, features and interactive properties. A partial project list includes: Total Drama Island, Ridonculous Race, Grojband, Stoked, Crash Canyon, Yin Yang Yo, Jimmy Two Shoes, Rollbots, My Babysitter’s A Vampire, Land Before Time V, VI, An American Tale III, Ferngully II, All Dogs Go to Heaven, The Secret of NIMH II, Rescue Heroes, Elliot Moose, The Roswell Conspiracies, Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys, The Pink Panther, Wing Commander, Robocop, Beetlejuice, The Family Dog, Eek the Cat, Ned's Newt, Bob & Margaret, George Shrinks, Committed, Marvin the Tap Dancing Horse, Extreme Ghostbusters, Umptee 3 TV, The Magic Adventures of Mumfie and Mummies Alive.
Elliott Animation has over 100 production workstations in-house and 5 postproduction compositing stations. We have a CG render farm, digital video decks, audio assembly and multiple non-linear editing systems.
Our significant investment in high-tech tools and electronic infrastructure helps us optimize the speed and cost effectiveness of 2D, Flash and 3D productions and put it all on the screen.
So give us a look. We think you will like what you see.
