Crashdown Studio is a animation boutique co-founded by Pierre DeCelles who is a famous Canadian Animation Director who worked on various productions ranging from television to films.

Crashdown Studio has roots from the halls from Hanna Barbara and WB where Ed Benedict was Pierre's mentor and friend, and passed along a lot of production training and elements to continue work to this day in the same style as the old H-B studio.

Currently, we are busy with projects ranging from book illustration to animation.

If you are interested in developing an animation project contact us and send us information first and will get back to you as best as possible.

In the mean time feel free to look at our pencil test page.




Animation & Graphic Design

We have been animating in different mediums since 1980, using traditional and digital methods. Our workflow is streamlined from pre production to production using Adobe and Toonboom tool sets. We constantly improve our workflow and keep the production as simple as possible to maintain speed of output during the work schedule.


During our time in Shanghai, we take part in local community activities and a part of organizations that properly promote the animation and film industry developing in China.  The groups that we recommend are properly established with good intentions at heart and we sponsor or support in various ways.  We also attend local events as well, if the times allows and show young students the art of animation.We recommend the following organizations for Film, Game & Animation inside China, check them out when you get the chance, and maybe you will see us at their meetings in Shanghai.
