Singapore has been steadily growing as a hub for animation production over the past decade.
In recent years, the animation industry in Singapore has received significant government support, which has helped to boost its growth. The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has launched several initiatives to support the industry, including providing funding and training for aspiring animators and studios.
So there is no surprise that the country has several world-class animations and vfx studios such as Industrial Light & Magic by the one and only George Lucas.
Are Large Animation Companies Suitable for SMEs?
Sadly, the answer is no. The larger companies usually are not available for commercial projects. Or if they do, their fee will likely break the bank, especially for SMEs. So if you are having trouble finding the right animation company for your business, this list is for you.
We’ve come up with Singapore’s top 10 animation companies that would most probably take your video marketing campaign to the next level. Let’s get to it!
