Your Bath based Animation Studio
We are an animation agency specialising in producing playful, inventive content that engages viewers and delivers results.
Based in Bath, but working with clients worldwide, we create content for brands big and small, including visitor attractions, education, technology and lifestyle. Providing the full service from concept to final delivery.
We produce animation, live action video, graphic design and illustration. Our broad skill set allows us to tell stories and visualise concepts in a way that works for you and your brand.
Extremely versatile and budget friendly. 2D animation can tell sometimes difficult stories with humorous character animation, or make dry concepts exciting with fluid info-graphics. You can provide us with graphics to work with, or we can design the look from scratch.
Whether you need a clean and clear explainer video or dynamic motion graphics, 3D animation allows your ideas to become a tactile reality.
Your story requires the best of both worlds. You need to be able to speak directly to your audience with video, but also want to explain difficult to visualise concepts with animation. These films are great for documentaries, promotional videos and educational tools for museums and places of learning.
Web graphics, GIFs, info graphics, illustration and even company portraits, we can help your brand communicate with humour and colour. Please note: if you commission an animation we can also make the stills print ready to be used for marketing and promotional purposes.
Animated Magic is an established animation agency based in the beautiful city of Bath. We are specialists in creating engaging films that combine warmth and humour with technical wizardry.

Our aim is to create films that help to grow your business, sell your products, increase your client base and strengthen your brand. We want your audience to be amazed and engaged by what you do. Let us help you tell your story.
The company was founded in 2012 by creative director Luke Maitland. Whilst training as a teacher Luke discovered that his best lessons were when he created videos and audio content, telling stories and educating through them. Luke spent the next 10 years training then working in the industry, learning how to animate and create immersive content for a wide range of applications.
Luke's experience ranges from creating films that help to visualise multimillion-pound developments in order to gain funding, too explaining complex ideas for universities, museums and entrepreneurs. With an increasingly high profile, Luke's work is known for its warmth, humour and ability to make complex or difficult ideas accessible.
Animated Magic also works with a selected group of trusted professionals, bringing in specialist expertise when needed. Working in this way allows us to tailor projects to your needs, delivering high quality that meets all budgets and deadlines.
The price range for a 2-5 minute animation is typically between £1,500 - £6,000
Some of the factors determining the price range are:
Script - We can work with you to create a script from scratch, or - if you have a script - we'll take that concept forward and visualise how the message can be told.
Style - Detailed drawn scenes or simple animated infographics? Will the film combine 3D and 2D animation? Get in touch - we can talk through what would work best for you.
Length - The length of the film is an important factor regarding price, but not always the most important one. A one minute film with complex character animation could cost the same as a simpler 5 minute animated infographic. Contact us to talk you through your options.
Voiceover - Voiceover artist fees can vary widely, typically they are between £150 - £500 for a sub 5 minute film. If there is someone in your organisation who you would like to be the voice of your film, we'll record the voiceover - giving your film a personal touch, while saving money.
Alternatives to full animations, are to commission Gifs and short (sub 30 second) social media friendly films. These can cost as little as £250.
