About Beakus


We are purveyors of fine animation and motion design.

Beakus is an animation and motion design studio founded by experienced producer/director Steve Smith.

Since 2010 we’ve crafted beautiful, compelling, and powerful animation for a wide range of clients that include NGO's, brands, broadcasters, and start-ups.

Character, storytelling, design, and the connectivity of motion, all sit at the heart of everything we do.

What we do

We design, direct and produce animation in all it's forms.
We like to get stuck in and collaborate with you at an early stage, contributing to ideas, scripts, and visual development.



We provide animation services, direction and production of high quality animation in support of agencies or brands, whether for a broadcast or digital audience.

Motion Design

We provide animation production of explainer videos and films for online or in-gallery distribution. Our work has been seen many thousands of times on Vimeo and other platforms and we treat explainers as we would short films - with a great deal of style!

Much of our work is short-form, whether corporate, commercial, or simply creative. Our directors are all short film makers whose work has been awarded at festivals right around the world. We love filmmaking!
