Meet the Team

The company is the vision of director/VFX artist Konstantinos Koutsoliotas & designer Elizabeth E. Schuch: a creative studio providing top quality VFX, uniquely styled art services, and producing highly visual films - always with an intense passion for aesthetic quality. The beautiful, the fantastical, and the eccentric are always in the forefront of our imaginations, and we foster a creative environment that thrives on collaboration.

Officially founding the company in 2011, the dynamic duo have been working together since 2004, on projects spanning commercials, titles, 2D-3D shadow play backgrounds for films, live circus design, music videos, theatre projection, scripts, and other adventures. Both trained in CGI at the Glasgow School of Art, Kostas comes from a traditional arts background, and Elizabeth from theatre design.

Using our network of brilliant freelance animators and associates in music, circus, and theatre, we can provide powerful artistic backing to Film & VFX projects. Kostas’ Greek heritage has given company a vested interest in the stories and cinema of Europe, growing stronger with our first Greek feature film production underway.
