Provoke. Captivate. Inspire.

We are Circus Family, a diverse group of Audio Visual storytellers whose mission is to create content that moves people. Our expertise includes motion design, graphics, animation, visual effects, live-action production and technical consultancy. We have made emotional connections with audiences with our short films, documentaries, animations, commercials and massive projection installations, among other things. And like every good circus, we’re always out to instill a sense of wonder and awe in our audience.

Sometimes it’s the magic of a particular image sequence. Other times it’s how the graphics come to life in a special way that really touches people. Or the way a visual effect rings true, the playfulness of animation well orchestrated or the vividness of a massive projection that makes people wonder: “How did they do that?!?”

These are the moments that our work touches people on an emotional level. And these looks of fascination and wonder are also the reasons why we do what we do. To us, every emotion counts. And anything worth doing is worth doing in a special way.

We work with a large network of talented partners on a project basis. This allows us to pull together the best team for each challenging project. In other words, we are one tent with many acts that can be orchestrated especially for your needs. But nothing can explain what we do better than our work.
