  • International studio in Tokyo

    Toneplus animation studios specializes in Film/Commercial/Game computer animation titles focused on worldwide distribution.

    We have an internationally experienced creative and technical team. Our goal, to deliberately not do things the local way so:
    1. Japanese companies can access foreign talented animators/R&D team.
    2. Foreign access to Japanese CG using reliable management.
    Our studio is set up like a small modern LA facility. Pipeline based, from the modelers to ther render farm all using Linux. We welcome Japanese that want to train in a multilingual environment before going off to a foreign studio.

  • So what can we do for you?
