Celebrating 25 years of business

Alternative View Studios was founded back in 1998 (and became a limited company in 1999) by Andy Moss and Darren Poore and later joined by myself. We set out with a clear vision: to create high-quality digital content with an emphasis on education. Over the years, we’ve delivered numerous exciting projects across diverse sectors, creating impactful animations and engaging games.

As we celebrate twenty-five years of Alternative View Studios, we’re grateful to our talented team members, past and present, whose dedication and expertise have been the driving force behind our success.

Clients & projects

We also thank our loyal clients, including BBC, Cambridge University Press & Assessment, Friend, Liverpool CAMHS, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Medical Aid Films, Oxford University Press, Pearson and Publicis, without which none of this would have been possible.

Our animations and games have helped train health workers throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and supported children and young people in learning Maths, Science, Geography, and English. We’ve created websites and animations in a huge number of languages – some we didn’t even know existed before we started the project!

Embracing change

Our work has taken on new dimensions in recent years as we adapt to changing times and evolving technologies. Like many businesses, since the global pandemic, the rise of video calls and remote working has transformed how we collaborate and communicate, prompting us to explore innovative methods and tools to ensure seamless project delivery.

Making a difference

While we take immense pride in all the work we’ve undertaken, we particularly enjoy projects that allow us to make a positive impact on the world around us. Take the Brent Gets Wilder project, for example. We worked with LEAP London, a CIC that enacts local change, improving lives and fostering creativity. Our animation was an integral part of their campaign, and we made a fun quiz designed to test knowledge of the project. The animation went on to be shortlisted in the WHO Health For All Film Festival 2023.

Future endeavours

As we look to the future, we remain committed to our core values of creativity, innovation, and social responsibility. We’re delighted to continue supporting existing clients, such as Cambridge University Press & Assessment, and working with new clients, MOPAC and Fauna & Flora, on some exciting projects—watch this space.

Whether it’s tackling pressing issues like sustainability, advocating for mental health awareness, or harnessing the power of technology to drive positive change, we’re excited to continue creating fantastic digital content that informs, entertains and educates.

Here’s to our exciting next chapter of impact, innovation, and inspiration.
