2012 has been a very busy year for us! In April Mair Perkins set up the animation company Mair Perkins Ltd. (keeping the freelance business name) after establishing a successful business as a freelancer. It was a natural progression as the business grew and we began sharing studio space in Katapult’s offices but we pride ourselves on still using the same small team of local creative workers on our animation projects.
We owe our happy and successful year to our clients, the support from the University of Derby Enterprise Centre and business associates and collaborators (Haynes Music Production, QuimbyCo Animation and Motion Graphics, FD2D magazine , Cubic Mushroom , Joke De Winter Web Design , David James Ross , Katherine Cory Design and Chris Seddon Photography to name a few.)
This year we created 17 animations and had the pleasure of working with lovely clients ranging from a local University and East Midlands video production companies to the The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers and the Singapore based business TSU Professionals. We’ve even worked with big names like Vodafone, Microsoft 365 and Eon (though we can’t show that one!) and some social enterprises and charities.
As you probably won’t have time to watch all our animation work , we hope you enjoy the show reel. The music was composed and produced especially for the showreel by our business associate, the east midlands based music composer and producer Ben Haynes
In case you’re interested in seeing some older animation work by Mair Perkins, here is the showreel she produced in 2009 after finishing her degree in BA (Hons) Visual Communication Animation
