“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
“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 colourful 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
“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, fantastic experience!” Al Hawkins Milo Biotechnology
“In the spring of 2016 had the pleasure of working with Anders on a series of explainer videos on behalf of one of our agency clients. Anders is a creative and flexible video and graphics artist who produces great looking material. I would highly recommend working with Anders.” Christofer Björkvall, Co-founder / CCO + CTO The Content Family AB
“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 colourful, 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.
“Working with Anders is a pleasure. He is a great mix of creativity and practicality which can be rare. He is extremely thorough and customer focused and also had great ideas and animates beautifully. 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 in 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 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 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 micro-optical design and is therefore highly technical, but Anders Sundstedt managed to distil 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
“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
“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 centred 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)
“I have collaborated with Anders on different projects over the past year. As a voice-over artist, I appreciate his ability to give clear direction as to what is required and he always pays great attention to detail ensuring that animation and voice fit perfectly. He is also a good guy to work with generally and we have enjoyed close co-operation in working together.” Neil Macgillivray Neil Macgillivray Voice-over
