Your Philadelphia Animation Studio and Video Partner

A Philadelphia Animation Company 

Gregor and Phil, the founders of Motifmotion, grew up in the Philly suburbs. That’s why we started our video and animation studio in Philadelphia. In 2016, after freelancing for six years, we opened our doors in Old City, near the Ben Franklin Bridge.

As a dedicated Philadelphia animation studio, we serve clients in Delaware County, across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and around the world. But, our heart is always in Philadelphia. We always integrate the city’s spirit into our work, and we love collaborating with local organizations.

The Animation Production Process

At Motifmotion, we make the animation and video production process fun, team-focused, and detailed. Whether you need us to handle everything or just a part of your project, we’re here for you.

Philadelphia Video Production

Many of our clients are based in Philly. They range from universities and nonprofits to large companies and healthcare organizations. They all appreciate Philadelphia’s unique energy and are bonded by their love hoagies, Gritty, and Philly sports — and ofcourse, their desire to work with a Philadelphia animation studio.  We’ve made various types of videos for them, including:

  • Explainer Videos
  • Educational Series
  • eLearning Modules
  • Liveaction Videos
  • Promotional Videos
  • Animated Ads
  • Mini-Documentaries
  • Product Demos

    PECO Case Study – “Self-Service Series”

    The Problem – PECO, Philadelphia’s leading electric and gas company, knew that customers found it difficult to navigate their services especially over the phone and on black and white documents.

    The Solution – They asked us to create a series teaching customers about using self-service platforms. Ultimately, this made PECO’s self-service platforms simpler to understand, and therefore more accessible.

    PBS Case Study – “Your Democracy”

    The Problem – Many young Americans lack a deep understanding of how the government works. Given Philadelphia’s historical significance, WHYY wanted to address this with an impactful series. 

    The Solution – Hand in hand with WHYY producers, we simplified the U.S. Constitution, government, and rights for middle and high school students. Today, our work can be seen on WHYY’s website, on Youtube, and many other destinations. Ultimately, this project helped WHYY win a Mid-Atlantic Emmy! 

    Benefits of a Philadelphia Animation Company

    It’s true — being physically distant from your animation studio vendor isn’t a deal breaker. You could (for instance) reach out to a studio in New York City or L.A. But proximity has its perks. If you need live action video support, great service, fair prices, and a team who gets your audience, choosing a local Philadelphia animation company is a smart choice!

    FAQ – Animation and Video Services in Philadelphia

    What services do you offer?2024-01-18T20:59:49+00:00

    We specialize in a range of services including animation, video production, motion graphics, and post-production editing. We also deliver illustration and graphic design projects – usually, but not always related to our videos! Our team is equipped to handle projects of various sizes and complexities.

    Why should we choose a Philadelphia-based studio?2024-01-18T20:58:14+00:00

    East coast based? Choosing a local(ish) studio is a no brainer for live action video production. It can also encourage better communication, a deeper understanding of the local market and audience, and more competitive pricing. True, proximity is less important for animation than it is for live video, but even here, being neighbors certainly doesn’t hurt!  

    How do you ensure understanding of our target audience?2024-01-18T20:54:46+00:00

    We prioritize close collaboration with our clients to deeply understand your needs, objectives, and target audience. We work with you to grasp the essence of your message, the intricacies of your industry, and the competitive landscape you’re operating in. This partnership allows us to create content that not only resonates with your audience, but also stands out in your specific market.

    Can you handle projects from clients outside of Philadelphia?2024-01-18T20:54:18+00:00

    Absolutely. While we are Philadelphia animation studio with a strong understanding of the local market, we are fully equipped and experienced in handling productions from clients nationwide and internationally. Indeed, we’ve worked with clients and artists from all over the world. 

    What is your pricing structure?2024-01-18T20:53:14+00:00

    Ah, the age old question!

    The blessing of animation is that it’s an extremely flexible medium. This is great for our clients in the long run, because it allows Motifmotion to deliver productions at range of different price points—adjusting production levels accordingly. That’s the good news!

    On the other hand, animation’s flexibility can make providing early quotes a bit more difficult. Not to worry – we know exactly what questions to ask you. Reach out. We’ll ask a few key questions and get you a quote in no time.

    How do you ensure quality and creativity in your projects?2024-01-18T20:44:36+00:00

    First things first — no amount of technical skill can match the power of skilled storytelling.  Our team members are professional storytellers, and we leverage  our respective crafts (writing, illustration, animation, music and sound effects) to create multi-sensory learning experiences. Of course, we also stay updated with the latest trends and technologies in animation and video production. In the end, we combine age old motifs, with beautiful motion, creating…you guessed it, Motifmotion! 

    What is the typical timeline for a project?2024-01-18T20:30:31+00:00

    Timelines vary based on a project’s scope and complexity. Short explainer and marketing videos  often take between 6 and 9 weeks to produce. However, estimates can vary based on many factors – including how established your visual style is (if at all), the production’s complexity, the length of the video, its ultimate purpose – and many more variables.  We always work to meet our clients’ deadlines, and we provide detailed timelines after assessing your project’s details.

    How do you handle revisions or feedback?2024-01-18T20:27:20+00:00

    Client satisfaction is our top priority. Simply put, it drives every decision we make! We welcome feedback, and we always describe the revisions process upfront, in order to ensure the final product aligns with your vision.

    Do you have a portfolio or examples of past work?2024-01-18T21:54:55+00:00

    Yes! Our portfolio is diverse. We’ve delivered videos across many industries and verticals. You can view some of our portfolio here, or we can provide specific examples relevant to your project upon request. We’re happy to help.
