Looking for a top animation production agency?

Animation video production visualizes your message using animation instead of humans and acting. Popular examples of animation video are movies like Toy Story or A Bug's Life. But, animation production has a role in businesses, too. Data shows that more than 60% of people are visual learners. This means a video on a landing page or on social media may be more effective for converting your audience than text alone.

When hiring an animation company, look at their portfolio of work, former clients, and reviews. Ask about pricing and their approach to animation video production – from planning to storyboarding to production.

That's why we've created this list of the best animation companies for you to review. Read through company descriptions, former clients, and notable projects to find the best fit for your business. (And, if you want personalized recommendations, tell us about your project.)
