What do we do?

Our company was founded during the coronavirus outbreak by Eva Robinson, Josh McAvoy and Dónal Rainey.

We make kickass animated content for local brands. From big organisations to small businesses. We combine a wealth of production experience with a unique creative flair. Everything we make is bespoke and different but it's always awesome!

Aura Digital Studios is an independent, interdisciplinary animation studio based in Belfast!

Whoa, that was wordy! Let's break it down:

Independent

Every project centres around the needs of our clients which gives us the freedom to choose how we operate. Not only does this open up a world of creative possibilities, but it also allows us to work how we need to on a given project.

 

What does that mean for you?

It means we can produce content faster and more cost-effective than big companies who focus on work on an international scale.

Interdisciplinary

While most studios focus primarily on one type of animation production, we pride ourselves on our ability to produce content using a wider range of skills. We are capable of producing animated content in 2D & 3D, This also extends to hybrid content. This wider skillset gives us the tools we need to work smarter and therefore, achieve creative goals using the most efficient methods. Without compromising on quality or style.

Animation

When people think of animation they think of Disney's 'Snow White' or Pixar's 'Toy Story.' While this makes up a large portion of the industry, it's not the only use case for animation. We at Aura Digital use our ability as animators to bring brands to life. We elevate flat, motionless logos into vibrant, exciting motion graphics. We create characters to appeal to your customers/clients. We generate visually stimulating digital content to get you more clicks on social media. And produce unique branded explainer videos to get your message across.

Aura Digital Studios will help bring your brand to the next level!
