Below are a selection of examples we feel bring a clear aesthetic to serious subject matter . In each we have used simple characters to tell emotive stories. Environmental elements are treated in a bold and graphical way, while shadow and light give each scene depth and context. Reduced frame rates and textured grading bring a hand made look to the animation.

Scene & Movement

A selection of Cub Studio shots that use light, parallax and flowing camera transitions create a sense of depth. Colours are bold and simple and subtle use of gradients or colour textures signify light sources and shadow.


Our simple (often silhouetted) characters allow for an increased 'cast' size while retaining very expressive and emotive movements. In many cases this allows for subtle humour.


Even dry, iconographic elements and graphs can retain real personality.
