Fusion Medical Animation

About us

Dedicated to Excellence

Fusion Animation was founded in 2010 by Simon Reid. Since then, Simon and his team have established a world-leading, high end animation studio that works with some of the biggest and most innovative names in the pharmaceutical and medical industries.

We've brought together brilliant film makers and technicians with huge experience in both communications and science. And in the process, our teams have won many awards, including an EMMY, and a BAFTA.

Of course, we're happy our work has been recognised with multiple awards, but what gives us most pleasure is delivering stunning, effective films for our clients.
