The studio

Script to screen award-winning studio

 

Headquartered in a stand-alone 5 story building in Bangkok’s upscale Thonglor district, with our 6th floor positioned in Mumbai’s animation heartland, our homes have bragging rights to being one of the top most animation facilities. From storytelling to design, modeling to texturing, camera layout to animation & lighting, effects to color grading, our 250+ family is a melting pot of experience from North America, Europe and Asia, with as many nationalities as we have disciplines.

 

M2 is an English speaking studio, operated with North American standards & Scandinavian sensibilities. We take the upper hand by fitting ourselves out with top-tier talent, state of the art equipment, modern data security, staff amenities and an informal international atmosphere. When we add in healthy doses of food, culture, and tropical beaches, it’s an easy task to attract top talent from around the globe.

The Talent

Artists, Technicians and Tacticians

Our collective of Artists, Technicians and Tacticians form a firm alliance to represent the three foundations on which quality can thrive.

Each supports the others as our technical teams provide precision tools for our creatives to finesse their work, our management teams collaborate to plan achievable milestones, and our leadership teams give forum to allow people input and ownership of their contributions.

The Approach

From 20 years of constantly outdoing ourselves on each project, we have distilled the essence of quality into three simple ingredients:

Choices

Creative choices need to be made at every step, so we put great weight in choosing the appropriate aesthetics for the maximum appeal.

Know-how

Understanding the impact that each decision has for every step of production allows us sharp planning to avoid stalled production flow.

Fanatical Devotion To Meticulous Detail

Care and attention is visible on screen to all viewers – discerning or otherwise – therefore every object on screen demands we attend to its purpose and value.

TECHNOLOGY

A Lean Artist-oriented Pipeline

Technology serves to support Creativity.

Our Pipeline & Development Teams spend each day working on a faster,
sharper and more agile experience for our creatives & clients.

We are 100% Shotgun integrated in all processes,
Software agnostic, and flexible to assign naming conventions
& file structures as needed per project.

Redshift (GPU render) & Vray/Arnold (CPU render) + Cloud rendering.

High level of security & controlled access to storage.

 

Cloud based solutions bring consistency to production work, regardless of which M2 geo-location people are in, or whether their workstation sits in the studio or in their living room.

To Sum It Up

Not just another paint-by-numbers operation, M2 Animation is a rare coupling of Eastern & Western sensibility, creativity and performance, able to deliver with equal strength on three major fronts:

Conceptual Pre-production

(Story, Art, Design, Storyboard, Edit)

Animation Production

(Model, Rig, Texture, Layout, Animation)

Final Output

(Lighting, FX, Render, Composite, Post, Audio, Packaging)

South East Asia meets Europe meets North America to bring world-class quality with affordability.
