Northey and Northey are Chris and Shane Northey. We’re two independent animators from Melbourne, Australia who sit somewhere in between traditional freelancers and a small creative studio. Being from different creative backgrounds allows us to draw on our different skillsets to deliver exciting and engaging animations.

We have over 30 years combined experience designing, animating, editing, and producing content for all types of clients ranging from multinationals to boutique businesses. We pride ourselves on our ability to carefully understand the requirements of each project to ensure a fast, smooth, and hassle free experience for our clients.
