“For my latest release The Big Balloon to the Moon, I always had in mind an animated music video so I shopped around the internet for quite a while and then I found Anders Sundstedt. Here was an artist who had his own voice, his own unique style and it seemed to fit perfectly with the imagery I had in mind for my music. He immediately understood the visual elements that would do the trick and I believe he was the only one to be able to instill the poetry I was looking for. Anders is a rare very sensitive artist who pays attention to every tiny detail while delivering a profound work that appears simple on the surface. And that is exactly what I try to do with my music. So, maybe it’s not surprising after all that we were selected in six festivals and won three in a matter of weeks. More to come? Thank you Anders, you did much more than expected and in such an elegant way.” Kark Baudoin
“Anders has just completed for the Centre for Sustainable Healthy Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods at the University of Glasgow an excellent animation that focuses on our capacity strengthening of research in the global south. We are very happy to recommend his services to others who require similar work to be done. He was very clear with his requirements in order to produce the animation and completed the work according to the schedule we agreed. So full marks to Anders for quality and reliability!” Mike Osborne Professor of Adult and Lifelong Learning

“At ARCHIE-WeSt we needed an attention-grabbing video to explain the concepts of High Perfomance Computing to a non-technical audience in an informative way. After viewing the work of Anders Sundstedt we concluded that they were ideal for the job. Their videos are colorful, quirky, entertaining, and informative and by using the latest techniques they give their videos a contemporary feel. Anders was responsive, professional, and delivered on time and we were delighted with the end product!” Richard Martin, High Performance Computing Manager University of Strathclyde.
“The work that Anders did for our project for the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods at the University of Glasgow was of exceptional quality. He went above and beyond what was expected and did an amazing job meeting a tight deadline. He is obviously a very talented animator and director, as anyone who watches the video that he made for us at SHLC can see.” Graeme Young Lecturer in Social and Public Policy
University of Glasgow
“Anders is an amazing artist and animator! I had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a song I produced for Sofi K called “Fall Back Down.” The level of hard work and detail that he put into our music video was unbelievable. He is communicative and gives you detailed descriptions and options of ways to make something work. We sent him examples of some of the imagery, tone, and feel that we were looking for in our animation and he was able to masterfully incorporate these things in. We were blown away by his talent and the way our video came out. I think Anders is doing great things in the world of animation and will continue to impress the people he collaborates with. I’m hoping to work with him again in the future.” Bryce Harding Producer
“After the International Diabetes Federation has worked with Anders on a Whiteboard Video, we have decided to contact him again for a promotional Video for our new project Taking Diabetes to Heart. Anders started working right away and quickly delivered his first ideas. Anders created beautiful and colorful artwork, with attention to details. At the same time, he has shown great time-management skills, as he could inform us of the duration of the different phases of the project right from the beginning. Anders was very enthusiastic about the project and created wonderful artwork with this video. We wish him all the best for his future projects and are sure that he will further create great videos.” Anne Wiebke Ohlrogge International Diabetes Federation
“They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” In the case of Sundstedt Animation, a picture is worth far more. What can be said of images so rich in clarity, and in colour, that one stays transfixed, absorbing their meaning through sensitively made expressions and interpretations? In my case, there was only one scene. However, that one scene was made so expressively that all who viewed commented on how, in its uncluttered elegance, it upheld and supported the song in a rich and meaningful way. Anders keeps the client’s wishes at the forefront, never wanting to deviate from the clients purpose and goal. A meticulous, and sensitive artist, his creations are alive with colour and fluidity. I will not hesitate to get Sundstedt Animation on board for my next animation project. Easy, friendly, professional, beautiful.” Phyllis Sinclair Singer-songwriter
“I had Anders do an explainer animation video for my new website and I must say I couldn’t have picked a better guy. He kept me informed the whole time, sending me the work in progress for my approval. He was overflowing with ideas and suggestions which made me change a few things for much the better. His attention to detail was fantastic. At times I felt like it was his project the way he cared for it. Overall 10 out of 10.” Craig Allison Founder
“Anders was the perfect partner for our explainer video: he made the development process very easy and was able to translate our basic concepts into animation. It's clear that he has a wealth of experience in all aspects of the production process. Anders worked many extra hours to make last-minute improvements; I really felt that he had a sense of ownership/pride in the project. Overall, a fantastic experience!” Al Hawkins Milo Biotechnology

He developed an explainer video for our social treating app Givvit and it is perfect, exactly what we wanted.” Alex Kennedy Founder of Givvitapp
“We commissioned Anders Sundstedt to produce an After Effects video to explain the advantages of one of our products. The product and application are quite complex. However, Anders Sundstedt picked up the concept well and rendered it just the way we would have wanted. He produced the video quickly after the storyboard was agreed.
We were delighted with the result. I would both recommend Anders Sundstedt and use him again if possible.” David Armstrong, Marketing Director M Squared Lasers
“I got the video. I watched it 3 times already. It is absolutely fantastic. You have exceeded our expectations. Our team loved the video. Everyone is talking about when we can start working on the second video with you. I do understand the commitment and dedicated effort you put into this video. It really shows in your work. You have given more than expected for our project. We are very fortunate to find you. You have been very professional and thorough in asking tons of questions upfront. Your speed has helped us overcome our setbacks. Thanks again for everything.” Jay Ponnada, Entrepreneur Dibbee LLC.
“It has been a pleasure working with Anders. He effortlessly interpreted our scientific specification requirements into a unique and tasteful animation. Flexible and open to suggestions, Anders expertly guided us through the practical thinking behind the design and delivered the product within the set time frame promised. I will be very happy to work with Anders again in the future. The whole process from initial consultation to final deliverables was very professional. The design creativity was particularly impressive and the support subsequent to the animation going live has been excellent. I thoroughly recommend Anders for design and website animation.” Taya Mozagba, Marketing Coordinator Pharmacells
“Anders was a pleasure to work with. From the outset, we agreed on a budget, timeframe, and detailed storyboard for the project. All was documented as a matter of record for both sides. Anders gave regular updates throughout the creative phase and called out where possible any limitations and a proposed remedy for the same. He completed the project on time and within budget and has been supportive in any follow-up and change requests. Anders is a total professional and a talented creative that I would be happy to work with again.” Bryan Chillout Records
“Anders Sundstedt created an informational animated video for a new service launched by PowerPhotonic. The service involves the micro-optical design and is therefore highly technical, but Anders Sundstedt managed to distill the key aspects into two entertaining and informative minutes of high-quality animation. The video provides potential customers with answers to questions such as: what does this service do? how do I use the product? and what are the competitive advantages? without getting bogged down in technical detail. Not only was Anders Sundstedt very personable to interact with, but he also worked nights and weekends to finish the video in order to have it released by our approaching launch deadline; without which we would have been without a significant piece of marketing collateral. I would highly recommend using Anders Sundstedt for animation work as his excellent value, dedication, creativity, and personality made him a pleasure to work with. Your video was on loop on a monitor in the background of our stand during the conference which was great to have as an attractor for people passing by.” Matthew Currie Product Manager at PowerPhotonic
“I commissioned Anders Sundstedt to produce a music video for my new single called Lush and what he came up with was simply outstanding. It wasn’t an easy video to begin with. It centered on a story about a blind girl who lost her doll. Anders illustrated it brilliantly, creating a lovable character that will elicit empathy and compassion from viewers. This, combined with picturesque scenery and some lovely animals, made for a stunning video that truly befits the title of the song. But the video aside, what I find really remarkable is Anders’ tireless work ethic. He worked non-stop, constantly providing me with updates on the scenes that he’s completed and the progress that he’s made. You’ll never have to guess where he’s at. I would love to work with him again and I would recommend him to anyone. I must say the scenery, the backgrounds are stunning. The rest of it is lovely.” Razali Abdullah The Mother (Band)
“There is no I in team work, despite I’m a great writer I could of never made my vision come to life visually. With out one of the best Music Video Directors in the game/world. Anders took my vision and my Vinly Record to another level (From New York to the U.K.)! Thank you for painting a beautiful picture, it was a pleasure working together. Definitely looking forward to work together again on my next Master Peace! Sincerely King Francis (Francis Martin). Thank you Anders Sundstedt for your excellent body of work!” Francis Martin Francis Martin (BMI) Publishing
“Anders is a very professional and punctilious animator. I’ve reached out to him to create loop animations on illustrations. His high knowledge of Photoshop and After Effects allow him to create convincing and realistic animations that convey that relaxing feeling I was looking for. Anders handles everything from preparing the illustration for animation, rigging characters, and adding light effects to rendering the final product. He is also easy to communicate with. He has a lot of experience and therefore has interesting comments and suggestions to offer. I would definitely work more with him in the future and recommend him to people looking for motion animators.” Carole EDEL
“It was an absolute pleasure working with Anders. We reached out to Anders to do some beauty editing on a music video and the quality of his work exceeded our expectations. He was very friendly and professional, provided a fair quote, met all deadlines, and made rounds of edits to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. We could not be happier with the outcome and will definitely be working with Anders on future projects. Highly recommended!” Janine The Machine Recording Artist, Owner Janthem LLC
