I met Vikkal , the principal at Ataboy, years ago in NYC and i loved the team he put together and their approach on a tricky, small budget, small schedule, big expectation project we collaborated on. They started as many animation houses seem to, a few talented folks concentrating on design and 2d motion graphics, who find success and expand into 3d, live action, VFX, and niche tech like AR.
This is how Ataboy describes themselves:
“Ataboy is a design driven production company with a strong emphasis on visual storytelling.Based in NY and NZ, we are a collaboration of artists using a variety of techniques creating fresh content for brands worldwide.
With a strong foundation in design, we love exploring a variety of mediums. Our technique agnostic approach resonates with a diverse range of storytelling. Whether it’s 2D/ 3D/ stop motion or a combination of them all, we create worlds that are bespoke and handcrafted.”
