About the studio

And what we do

  • Monkey Tennis was established in 2014, and now consists of four like-minded artists & producers from Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. Together we are the core of Monkey Tennis, an animation studio and creative collective. Our studio is based in Viborg (DK), next to The Animation Workshop, and we recently opened in Copenhagen (DK) as well. We provide service work in all aspects of the CG pipeline as well as full productions from beginning to end.

  • A part from our studio work, we also offer both creative & technical direction and supervision on animated produc­tions. We work both as a group and on individual level on more specific parts of the pipeline. Our creative approach is a collective effort, where we combine our individual strengths to direct our projects as a unit. At Monkey Tennis we have a vast network of talented artists, that allows us to bring in the right talent for the right projects.
