about us

We make stuff move. We deliver highly personalised animated movies for a variety of audiences and purposes.

We tailor every step of the creative design process to the needs of the project. This allows us and our collaborators to tell the story in the most engaging, efficient and personal way.

We have a broad range of visual styles and techniques, handmade as well as digital: 2D, 3D, stop motion. Some of our favourite story elements are the natural sciences (¹), weird dreamy humour and colourful worlds filled with one-of-a-kind characters.

Mochi Motion is based in Ghent, Belgium. Feel free to get in touch or a direct message on your social platform of choice.

From Wikipedia:

Mochi (Japanese: 餅, もち) is Japanese rice cake made of mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice. The rice is pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape.

Some variants taste a little funny, but in general they are quite delicious.
