“Speedshape intrigued me from the beginning by using CG to provide assets not only to Broadcast projects but also to Digital/Interactive production. The company is well-positioned for the digital revolution already taking place in advertising for the last decade. It combines talent with technology resulting in an efficient work flow that provides a digital solution from pre-production to final distribution.
