The Story of Luke

The company was founded in 2012 by creative director Luke Maitland. Whilst training as a teacher Luke discovered that his best lessons were when he created videos and audio content, telling stories and educating through them. Luke spent the next 10 years training then working in the industry, learning how to animate and create immersive content for a wide range of applications.

Luke's experience ranges from creating films that help to visualise multimillion-pound developments in order to gain funding, too explaining complex ideas for universities, museums and entrepreneurs. With an increasingly high profile, Luke's work is known for its warmth, humour and ability to make complex or difficult ideas accessible.

Animated Magic also works with a selected group of trusted professionals, bringing in specialist expertise when needed. Working in this way allows us to tailor projects to your needs, delivering high quality that meets all budgets and deadlines.


"Animated Magic listened to our brief and really took the time to understand our needs and our challenge. They managed to bring our brand to life and convey a complicated message very simply and effectively. The team here enjoyed working with Luke at Animated Magic, finding his approach inclusive, expert and very responsive. He delivered 3 edits of our videos quickly and to a really high standard, offering advice along the way. I would work with Animated Magic again, without hesitation!"
