Some of what our clients think.

Mark is a fantastically talented and knowledgeable individual with integrity and ethics beyond reproach. He is highly skilled and motivated, with exceptional business knowledge, problem solving skills and management ability. Mark helped on a number of projects where he immediately took the lead integrating with teams and immediately earning their trust. His results are exceptional as are his prices, but the value and service he provides as an individual and as leader of the excellent Quay Animation studios are unparalleled.

With tight deadlines, Mark delivered an absolutely first-class animation. He grasped our brief instantly and was able to push boundaries to give us an animation that we were proud of. Mark goes well above and beyond the expectations to make sure that we had an end-product we were more than happy with.

I recently completed a project with Mark for Tees Valley Arts. The project was to help a group of young people to develop a story centred around flooding and climate change which they would then animate. Mark showed them the techniques required for the project and helped to guide them through the complex process. Mark’s experience, patience and confidence ensured that the project was a great success, and that the completed film was something the participants could be rightly proud of.

Mark was an absolute pleasure to work with, Great can do attitude, highly skilled, highly talented and he ran through every wall we asked him to. I wouldnt hesitate to work with Mark again. If you’re looking for an animator…USE THIS GUY!!
