Mimic was founded by David Bennett, a veteran in 3D production for the feature film industry. His credits include Avatar, TinTin, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Monster House, Beowulf and The Polar Express. It is this experience that we have cultivated as the foundation of Mimic Productions services and technology.
We have created film-quality 3D assets for several block-buster films and TV productions. For further information about our Film/TV services please contact us, and we'll be sure to provide state-of-the-art 3D character services for your production.
Advertising + Creative Agencies
We love developing 3D assets for the creative industries, where it's all about breaking boundaries, creating exciting new content and pushing the potential of 3D as an art-form!
We have worked with multiple creative agencies and brands - from Nike and Coca-Cola, to Swatch and Cartier Jewelry - assisting them to develop new animated characters for their promotional content, advertisements and commercials. We provide a range of services, adapting our offers to suit the very specific needs of each customer. This, in particular, included the scanning services for over 10 x football super-stars, located across Europe, at just a days notice! Regardless of the situation, Mimic always remains professional, adaptable and enthusiastic for the project ahead.
Do you require high quality animated faces, 3D characters or motion capture services to bring your real-time characters for your video game project to life? Our team has a strong understanding of how to build 3D characters for the most popular game engines available today, including Unity, Unreal and Cry Engine. 3D outsourcing is a popular option for the game industry. We are adept at delivering quality animation within tight deadlines, working hard to ensure your budget and project schedule is never compromised.
Mimic has provided facial animation for the award winning game: Batman: Arkham Knight, Borderlands and NBA2k15, amongst others. We are proud to have designed film quality facial rigs and 3D characters for some of the most popular realtime projects in production today.
The transition of fashion into the 3D realm is inevitable. As online fashion platforms grow, so does the need for consumers to assess the clothing on a variety of customizable body shapes and sizes before committing to the purchase. Enter, a 3D solution!
Not only can 3D be used in fashion selling procedures, but also as a creative medium for branding and advertising. Mimic has produced 3D content for many global fashion brands, including Valentino, Balmain and Burberry. We are open to both creative and technical developments to meet the needs of our fashion industry customers - a new but sure field in the 3D industry.
World-leading 3D assets are typically developed inside the closed-doors of big budget film studios. Mimic is passionate about pioneering 3D outside of the block-buster cinema, bringing these specialty services to all creatives - and in particular to the music industry!
We have had the honour to work with the legendary rapper, Kanye West, producing the facial animation and rigging for West's interactive music video: Blllk Skkkn Head. We were also responsible for the entire 3D production of a music video series for Robin Schulz. Furthermore, we have built 3D avatars of major super stars J.Balvin, The 1975, Griff, Kojey and more.
Now is the time to take full advantage of our 3D services to push your digital Social Media avatar to the next level and make it a stand out application in the ever growing influencer market.
There is huge potential in the mobile industry to explore the creative and fun side of 3D animation to create truly unique and playful emoticons, photo-realistic avatars and mobile game scenarios. Whether for your social, business or entertainment application, Mimic's services will make your app's visuals the best they can be!
3D is a some-what uncharted medium in the fine arts industry, so we are thrilled to offer our expertise to visual artists wishing to dabble in a new field, or to experienced 3D artists searching for a helping hand.
In 2018 Mimic worked directly with world-renowned artists Marina Abramovic and Jeff Koons, creating new ground-breaking works in Virtual Reality, alongside Acute Art. This work included creating and animating Abramovic's exact digital replica, as well as animating Koons' infamous stainless steel ballerina. Recent artist collaborations include Ed Atkins, Omer Fast and Saadane Afif. We are always eager to work with visual artists, and are very sure to nurture and encourage the natural, but delicate, creative process.
We can bring back to life historical figures, celebrities and characters through digital resurrection - which has been a particularly popular movement in the holographic industry.
The most effective approach with a digital hologram is to perform "digital face-replacement" in 3D. Having just completed the longest digital face-replacement for a hologram in history, Mimic is the team for the job! Our facial animation specialists focus on ensuring that all of the subtleties and personal quirks of your digital double character are visually resurrected! Combined with a live video of the body in motion, a digital face-replacement is the perfect approach to ensure a highly convincing, and moving, holographic performance.
Virtual + Augmented Reality
Do you require high-quality animated faces, 3D characters or motion capture services for your real-time Virtual or Augmented Reality project?
