Flying Pencil Logo

The original focus of Shadetree Studio, in 1978, was cel (hand-drawn) animation. When computer animation became accessible around 1990, it became the primary format for animation. Anyway, we come to computer animation from a long-time artistic/classic animation background, instead of from the technology side. We think that gives our animation a special look, quality and appearance. Our clients agree.

If you have a video or web project that could be enhanced by animation*
but think your budget won't allow it, Please contact us. We do everything from flying logos to full character animation. We'll offer something that will work for your budget.

*Animation can pretty much ALWAYS enhance a project.
