AGILE FILMS WON'T PANIC

Agile Films have signed design and animation gurus Panic Studio to their roster.

The Latvian-based studio brings a range of skills to the roster, offering all the animation services a client could want - from creative direction and story development to character design and, of course, 2D and 3D animation.

Known for their teamwork (they claim they 'haven't had a punch up' over a project yet... which is promising), the studio love using distinctive colour and a funky sensibility to bring stories to life.

In fact, we'll let them introduce their logo in their own, characteristic way.



Panic's eye-catching style leaves a vivid impression on audiences, making them a smart choice for anyone who wants their brand to stand out from the crowd.

The studio have proven themselves effective across a number of media, including illustration projects and social media content. This instructional film for lifestyle app Ignilife uses charming, clean animation to show characters facing and overcoming daily challenges to their health.



Commercially, Panic have made a name for themselves producing ads and other content for prominent brands across Europe. Airlines, cloud computing apps, and even historic railways - they've done it all.

Their work for airBaltic, advertising 'cherry prices' - which mean discounted flights and other perks - shows off the studio's excellent CGI and 3D animation skills. There's a nicely judged sense of humour running throughout the brief spots, suggesting we've only seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what the Panic team can do.



Panic Studio's reel is now live at Agile Films, so head over and take a look. For more information on them or anyone else on the roster, get in touch with Fliss Hutcheson at fliss@agilefilms.com or give them a ring at 020 7000 2887.
