Why Spin Animation?

OVERNIGHT RESULTS

We are located in Metro Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. If you’re in Central Europe, this means a time difference of +9 hours. Based on this situation we have established an elegant day-by-day workflow: As a rule, you will get results first thing in the morning, no later than 9:00 CET! – There’s no wondering and waiting for deliveries.

PROFESSIONALISM

Not much has ever been achieved without commitment and dedication. We listen to you and care for your projects. – This has always been this way.

THE BIG PICTURE

We don’t just think outside the box, we also know there are multiple boxes, bags, bins, planets, possibly parallel universes. We expand ideas, approach from various angles, ask questions. Once the course is set, we aim to refine all components that make up the experience for maximum impact.

NETWORK POWER

Many of our contacts have been established in real life. Being full time professionals, they are specialists in their respective fields and have a vetted success history, covering a great field of creative solutions. – Together we bring you the most powerful and cost effective team capabilities!

    ABOUT

    How, where, who?

    EXPLORE

    It is our second nature to always think outside the box and look for ways of improving the product on all levels. If you wish, we’ll provide new angles on any given idea and present them as suggestions.

    FOCUS

    Staying true to the message and follow the directive without getting carried away.

    DELIVER

    Responsiveness and timely deliveries are absolutely key in the fast lived advertising business. That goes without thinking.

    SURPASS

    We are happy when the client is happy. And we like to be “ecstatically happy” rather than “OK happy”. Therefore we don’t want to deliver just an “OK product”, but exceed expectations.

    The Studio

    In the upper regions of Port Moody, far above the last tip of the Burrard Inlet, is where the magic happens. Chips and screens and membranes in the service of art. Be our guest to take a look around the studio right here and now.

    Simon Piniel

    Spin Animation, that’s Simon Piniel and a vast creative network. Simon embraces all aspects of animation: Picturing a story. Finding the best way to visualize it. Then bringing it to the point by refining motion, timing and composition. A speciality of his is to convey information simple and clear, but entertaining nonetheless.

    He graduated in Visual Communications at the HGK Zurich in 2000, specializing in Film and TV. Loving Vancouver, he pursued animation studies at ECUAD. Later he came to work on popular TV shows in local cartoon studios as storyboard artist and animator. After a few years, he finally settled there with his own company, still predominantly doing work for the Swiss market. He has also written and directed a number of shorts. Some have won him a number of prizes (even first!) at festivals worldwide – as well as an award by the BAK, the Swiss Department for Culture. Co-founding aktzeichnen.ch, a non-profit organisation based in Zurich is also among his accolades.

    His inspiration lies within his wife and kids, art and the active outdoors.

    Simon Piniel portrait

    He is a thoughtful creative director, always coming up with excellent ideas on how to make the project better, right up to the end.

    Mark Nickelsburg, Director at Special Team Films

    Simon, the man with profession, commitment and dedication to perfection. He is an inspiration!

    Denny Lu, Director at DHX Media

    Extreme workhorse. Solid and diverse skill set. Storyboards, animates, and designs really well.
