“From conception of the idea through to execution of the final video, they were brilliantly professional, creative and I felt like we were in very capable hands. We’re so chuffed with the final result!”

Briony Phillips | Rocketmakers

“Shy Guys created beautiful videos that made our whistleblowing research accessible to a much wider audience. They delivered a high quality product within designated time frames and were very professional throughout the process.”

  • How much does 2D animation cost?

    If only things were that simple! There are a few things we need to know to work out the cost of your animation. Check out our pricing page for more information, or please get in touch if you’d like a quote.

  • How is 2D animation made?

    Glad you asked! Although every project is unique, you can check out our process guide to see how we typically go about creating each 2D project that comes through our doors.

  • Which 2D animation styles do you cater for?

    Everything we create is fully unique, and we aren’t tied to any particular styles. We work with you to create something that suits your particular project. The only thing we don’t do is whiteboard videos, because…well, life’s too short.
