You are absolutely AMAZING. We have no words! Imagery is splendid and the details - I mean, when the bubble is exploding and you can see the water... and the way it transforms into metal. And the movement of this pretty kind snake. We are full of joy and happiness today. Thank you for your fabulous work, I would love to hug you all right now! We are very lucky we met and now we can say to all the world, you are the best creative studio ever! Thank you very much for everything you do for us.

I wanted to personally thank you all for your hard work bringing our concept to life. The client is very happy and so are we. The detail and time you have put into it shows. I’m excited to use it in our materials!

As I mentioned it was very well received, with various comments being made on its realism, lighting and quality. “Very lifestyle”, “Painterly feeling” and “great attention to “colour temperature” are some of the (paraphrased) complements that were mentioned.

WOW… and this is why I love working with Saddington Baynes! The cheetah looks amazing Phil. Thanks for getting this back to us so quickly and thank your team for working over the weekend.

We have worked with Saddington Baynes to create a short movie for one of our client within very tight timings. The lovely team immediately understood our needs and came up with a very smart and efficient way to bring our concept to life. We worked hand in hands with daily contacts with the team and the client was delighted by the result!
