Your research brought to life through our platform

Sci Ani – Science Animated

We are a scientific communication agency who develop engaging and accessible animations based on a specific researchers’ work.

Over 2.5 million papers are published every year. But on average, these papers are only read ten times and often never cited. Our animations make your research engaging and accessible, giving your work the attention it deserves from the right people. Higher impact metrics and increased citations for your research. Clear, accessible science for society through dedicated social media. Simple. Watch the animation to learn more about us.

You give us
the info

You provide us with the information and research you would like to see brought to life. We will speak with you either via email or phone to discuss your specific goals. From colour schemes to characters, we make sure the animation we create is exactly as you want it. But once we know these details, we leave you alone – we appreciate how busy researchers can be so we streamline our process as much as possible to save you time.

We condense
the information

We then take this information and create an engaging script written to the timeframe you require. At this point, you are able to revise the script as much as possible until it reads exactly as you want it to. Once approved, we then use a professional voice actor to create the animation’s voice over.

The magic
happens

The voice over and any extra information or images you provide are then passed over to the animation team. This is where the magic happens, condensing your complicated research down into a visual, easy-to-understand animation. From paper to video, this animation is then passed back to you for your feedback and approval. We only ever ask for payment once you approve your animation.

  • Professional narration with choice of voice actor
  • Unlimited revisions of voice-over script up to production

Testimonials

See what our clients think

Working with Patrick and his team at Sci Ani on our animation has been a great experience! They are very thorough, responsive, and delivers on their promises. We are also really happy with the animation they did for us, it explains a complicated concept in an easy way.

Helena CowleyCaptozyme

I was pleased with the few-minute animation the Sci Ani team developed to illustrate the basic functionality and advantages of a new dosimetry device my team invented and tested. The animations are a good way of communicating the basic science to a lay audience.

Dr Steven VigdorPhenix Medical LLC

It was an absolute pleasure working with the Sci Ani team to co-create a compelling evidence-based script, with a wonderful readiness to incorporate feedback and timeliness to reach the final presentation of research findings.

Dr Christine WekerleMcMaster University

I really like the visual look to the animation and was impressed by the team’s ability to design a very creative and engaging video. The process used very little of my time, as it was very streamlined and the Sci Ani team handled feedback very positively.
