Award-winning creative studio The Sequence Group has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Based in Vancouver, Canada and Melbourne, Australia (opened this year), The Sequence Group has expanded from motion comics to high-end 3D services over the years.
“10 years is a huge accomplishment, and we couldn’t be more proud of what the team has achieved in that time,” said founder and creative director Ian Kirby. “We’ve come such a long way, from our early work on the first ever motion comics and Batman and Harry Potter franchises, through to our work today on the Halo, Star Wars and Marvel IPs. We continue to explore new ways to push our creative thinking, from ice projections for the Dallas Stars to commercials that blend live action with the latest in VFX. It’s an exciting time: we can’t wait to see what comes in the next ten years.”
The Sequence Group was established in 2006 with a focus on broadcast design and motion comics — founder Ian Kirby and art director Andrew West worked on one of the first motion comics, Broken Saints, which they labored over in Kirby’s basement 15 years ago. This project helped them get the attention of major studios looking to create engaging backstories for films like I Am Legend, Inception and Prince of Persia.
Today, the boutique creative house has grown into a capable team of directors, artists, designers and animators working with a high-end 3D pipeline. Notable projects include Halo: Fall of Reach, Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2 Civil War, Star Wars: Commander and stop-motion inspired CG short Here in My Car with Giant Ant for messaging app Slack. Recent clients include 343 Industries, Disney Interactive, ABC, Kabam, Dallas Stars, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Sega and DC Entertainment.
“Sequence has been fortunate to establish an impressive roster of world-class clients from the beginning,” comments executive producer Dan Sioui. “While our projects, runtimes and visibility have all grown, it’s ultimately Sequence’s dedication, creative input and professionalism that keeps partners coming back.”
