About the studio

And what we do

  • Monkey Tennis was established back in late 2014, and now consists of three like-minded artists from Denmark and Switzerland. However; the idea of collaboration came years earlier while all three were studying together at The Animation Workshop. Our studio is located in the creative company cluster “Arsenalet” right next to The Animation Workshop in the wonderful town of Viborg, Denmark. At Monkey Tennis we have a vast network of talented artists and professionals that allows us to bring in the right talent for the right projects.

  • We are very passionate about story, characters and animation. And even more so; we are passionate about combining all of these elements in high quality productions that are as engaging, exciting and entertaining for an audience as they are for us to create. Monkey Tennis aspire to bring a unique blend of imagination, talent and humour to the worlds of animation, film, advertising, digital media and beyond. We know that all projects are unique with diverse and contrasting needs and we taylor our approach to each project individually.
