Who is the Itch

Ever had an Itch to try something different, or to push for something better?
Well, this company is our itch, and we can use it to help you scratch yours.
The Magnificent Itch is an animation studio residing in Surry Hills, NSW. Comprised of 2 key players, we’ve known and worked together in Sydney for 10 years.
Animation is always something we’ve loved, and animators are people we’ve long admired. It is an art form that can be fun and childish, or highly complex and emotive, but rarely boring. And that’s why we believe in the power that animation has to connect with people.

Feel free to give us a call. We’d love to have a chat about how we can help you out.

His concepts and writing add flavor to The Magnificent Itch, but also loves to wrap his fingers around some animating.

Arthur is the fellow on your team that can just do anything. Animate, model, character rigging, Rubik’s Cube, table tennis.. Anything.. I think it was growing up with that country air in Wagga Wagga that did it.
