About Us

Matinai is a creative boutique studio, producing 2D, 3D, and stop-motion animation and combining it all a friendly and quirky style. We love telling stories and creating appealing characters!

Matinai was formed in 2010 by directors Matt and Naomi.




See what we did there? 😉 

Matt is an experienced animator and cg supervisor, who has worked across a range of feature films, tv series, commercials, explainers, and online games. He combines a traditonal art background with a love of emerging technology and is always looking to the next production advantage to be gained.

Naomi comes from a traditional stop-motion background, creating short films and promos, before working with Aardman on Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Wererabbit. She bring this sensibility into her work in CG and 2D, and is the driving creative force behind ‘Mitten and Shoe’.


Last but not least our lovely furry collegue Fergus, who’s good at letting us know when a visitor is arriving but terrible with after effects.

What Our Clients Say

  • Matinai’s animation for the Creative Review/NHS Choices cartoon competition was outstanding and one of our favourites. Beautifully filmed, with a wonderfully quirky sense of humour the cartoon conveyed the promotion of NHS Choices as a destination brilliantly. Naomi herself is a determined, focused, creative, problem solver with a fantastic sense of humour and a real pleasure to work with.
