One of Australia’s leading design, visual effects and animation companies, Animal Logic is known around the world for its stunning work on major films including Babe, The Matrix, Moulin Rouge, Legend of the Guardians and Australia’s first digital animated feature, Happy Feet.
The company is currently in production on The Great Gatsby, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, and LEGO: The Piece of Resistance.
Animal Logic also produces award-winning work for a diverse, international clientele with an increased focus on opportunities in emerging markets – particularly China and other countries in Asia.
Over 71 per cent of sales are export focused, with international sales growing 56 per cent over the past year. The company reports that access to wider international markets has diversified production schedule risk by reducing reliance on one geographic or economic location.
Established in 1991, Animal Logic now has studios in Sydney and a production office in Los Angeles, and is one of the country’s largest employers of digital artists. A core team of software engineers also researches and develops the latest production pipeline software tools.
Demonstrating innovation in exporting, the company has developed a Creative Review Tool which bridges the distance to international clients located anywhere in the world and provides them with a real time review capability via the internet.
The Australian Export Award judges assessed Animal Logic as a clear winner because the company has demonstrated success in a difficult market and has established a clear development pathway from providing basic service work to more ambitious projects with clear export potential.
Developing and producing a slate of commercial feature films stamped with visual and technical innovation has become a hallmark of the studio’s work, the judges said. In just over twenty years, Animal Logic has built up an extremely impressive and high profile international track record.
