We create animated videos to promote your business, service or idea. We cover everything; research, scripting, storyboards, a professional voice-over, royalty-free music and full production. From start to finish an average video project takes approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.
Want a video?
Lost Marble is an animation studio. We hire scriptwriters, voice-over talents and whoever else as needed. We’ve been creating video content since 2004 for businesses of all sizes. We put our superpowers to good use by utilising the Adobe Creative Cloud apps and Cinema 4D and by fuelling ourselves with an abundance of caffeine.
We’re based in County Durham in the north-east of England. The best way to describe the north is to liken it to the area in Game of Thrones where the Wildlings live. Up here, you will often hear people mutter absurd nonsensical phrases such as ‘Bubblin’ bairn’s booler’s brokken’ or ‘That gadgie’s gannin’ propa radgie, lyke’.
'Work hard and be nice to people'
It sounds overly simple but that's how we like to work. We won't try to get as much money out of you as possible or promise anything we can't deliver. We'll be honest and friendly throughout the project. We see a working relationship with our clients as an equal sided agreement (we offer you our services for a fee) so we're not working for you, we're working with you.

“Working with Lee to produce our explainer video has been a joy from start to finish. He is a consummate professional, kept us in the loop with regular progress updates and struck a great balance between following our vision but guiding us with his expertise. Needless to say we're delighted with the result!”

“I can’t necessarily say that we were easy clients but Lost Marble couldn't have been more accommodating. They gave us enough control over the project to make us feel like we were steering the ship, but in reality they pretty much did everything.”

“The service and advice we received was outstanding. Lee was very helpful giving us guidance on the best direction for the animation to take, the target audience and what should be included. The video was beyond our expectations and exactly what we needed. Amazing!”
“They produced a top class animation that required no alterations or improvements. They nailed it in the first draft. An excellent company that I hope to use again in the future.”

“Very professional (in fact the provider wanted to re-shoot scenes because they felt it wasn't up to their delivery standards-whereas I felt it was fine!). High quality, professional and fast. I can think of 3-4 projects now where i can use them”

“Having worked with pricey agencies in the past on similar projects, I’d come to expect a certain element of condescension and an eagerness to compromise vision. But Lost Marble served us attentively and encouragingly.”
