CDW ANIMATION IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
As of the 17th of May 2021, CDW Animation is officially open for business and ready to take the animation industry by storm.
It started as a dream for a world class animation studio in Adelaide, South Australia. What followed was a gathering of like minded creatives, eager to be a part of a new wave of creator-driven, industry leading animation.
Our team has been working behind the scenes to create new, story driven projects built for an emerging generation of adults who crave stunning, complex and mature animated content.
We are doing things differently. Our team of writers, artists, animators, and composers are already working collaboratively and organically, side-by-side. Together we are bringing to life untold stories of real and imagined worlds, vibrant, intricate and delighting.
Our director and visionary, Simon Scales, leads the team. His experience in concept art and passion to build the Australian animation industry led him to founding CDW Studios (Adelaide based visual effects and entertainment design school) in 2012. Simon has continued to build a community made of world class industry artists who are passionate about telling stories and passing industry secrets to the next generation.
We’ve now brought on James Marshall as our Head of Studio. James’ background includes management in VFX, video game and virtual reality development, film and TV, and investment and business strategy. He’s here to help Simon push the boundaries in content creation across mediums.
Based in the heart of the Adelaide CBD – Level 4, the Myer Centre, Rundle Mall – we are also expanding our studio space, expected completion August 2021. This expansion will more than double our studio footprint and give us the space we need to grow our team significantly over the next few months. 3D animators, riggers, VFX, lighting artists and 3D modellers are invited to apply, with positions for production studio, teaching, and combined roles now available.
CDW Animation is an artist’s studio, led by creatives who are passionate about new, Australian, creator driven content. We are building a studio where the best professional and emerging talent can push creative boundaries, make cool stuff and have fun doing it. Together, we are working on our vision to bring Australia to the forefront of the animation industry.
CDW Animation is a studio based in Adelaide, Australia, that specialises in development and art for IP for animation, video games, film and TV. We focus on creating rich worlds and stories through Concept Art, Storyboards, Previs all the way through to final 3D/2D production. We are actively developing IP’s for studios and also partnering with studios around the world for video game, film and TV production.
