Animation by Freelance Animator Keith Mann


Here is a small selection of the many animated sequences that I have produced over the years. If you like these and would like to see more samples of my work then please have a look at my showreels. I have been creating models and animations for 3 decades so I have a large selection of assets at my disposal and a lot of experience of everything that goes into producing high quality, creative and eye catching sequences. If you need an animation producing, all you need to do is give me a description and I will let you know what is involved. You may only need a short one off sequence to use in a company video, or a whole video made completely using CGI, I can render low resolution to ultra-high definition 4K, all you need is a rough idea of what you want to achieve and I will take your brief and turn it into a stunning, attention grabbing piece of animation!

Products

Products are often the main reason for a company video; I can make your product look more slick, glossy and impressive than real life. Once your product is built it can be manipulated in a way that is difficult to do with live action photography.

Characters

A character is often wanted to demonstrate an idea, tell a story or just to add a bit of entertainment, I have built many characters and do all the animations by traditional key-framing, not motion capture.

Environments

Every animation usually has some type of background in which a subject is placed. I have plenty of assets and can quickly construct different surroundings for this purpose or I can create a specific required environment.

Graphics, logos and maps

During a presentation you will often need bar charts, graphs, maps and of course company logos. Here are some examples of the many types of graphics that I have often been asked to produce.
