We love making expressive animation, slick motion graphics and films with flair; but there’s much more to us than that. Little Motel was created by animators with a belief in the art of keeping things simple. An ambitiously simple set-up; simple straightforward communication; and a simple process that works. By immersing ourselves with all things animation and motion, we push ourselves to find the perfect approach, unlimited by style, technique or resource. At heart, we like stuff to look good, sound great and do its job.
We pair-up with awesome brands, charities and agencies across the country to create crafted films that bring pizzazz and punch to their communication. We‘re trusted as partners by the people we work with to match purpose with pretty pictures.
Our small team of creators will walk you through our well-oiled, adaptable process, mapping out the whole journey from start to finish. Our doors are always open. (Literally, we have no doors.) And at each stage, you get to tell us what you think. That means there’s no nasty surprises along the way and what you end up with is more than you imagined.
Matt Cochrane - Animator / Designer
Co-founder Matt is a man of many hats; literally and figuratively. From enduring Excel to living and breathing all things motion, he helps keep the Motel ship on course and smooth sailing.
Leigh Harrison - Animator / Illustrator
Co-founder Leigh definitely got in trouble for doodling in class. As happy working out of a sketchbook as his computer, lucky for us, now he can craft those delightful doodles into awesome animations.
Amy Garrod - Producer
Plate-spinner in chief, Amy makes sure that each project runs without a hitch. She loves getting to the bottom of a problem so everyone can make great work that they can be proud of (you included).
This is truly EPIC. I’m blown away by how this has turned out. The final edit, with all those little extra touches have really added something extra and lifted the whole thing.

It’s been a pleasure to work with Little Motel. We hadn’t commissioned any animation before and they were very helpful in guiding us through the whole process!
The team managed the projects from start to finish, making my life easier. The videos are engaging our customers and bringing in new business.
Little Motel took the time to fully understand the needs of the client and our creative vision. It’s the little flourishes that they add that really bring the animations to life.
